HAGERSTOWN - The organizers of an after-school program in Washington County are looking for third-, fourth- and fifth-graders to participate.
Carolyn Brooks, coordinator of the Collaborative Supervision and Focused Enforcement Program for Washington County, told the Hagerstown City Council on Tuesday that the program will provide supervised recreation for the children and help them complete homework assignments, among other things.
She said the program will be held from October to May for pupils at Bester, Eastern, Fountaindale and Winter Street Elementary schools.
The program requires pupils to stay after school for three hours a day, three days a week, Brooks said.
Children are recruited for the program by invitation or a referral from the school staff, she said. Up to 25 pupils can participate at each of the four locations.
