Migrant Saturday School Program

The Migrant Saturday School Program operates from 8:00am-12:00noon for students in Grades 4-8. Saturday School provides additional intensive support for students on extra-curricular and regular day activities. Similar to the Migrant Before School and After School Programs, the certificated Saturday School teacher meets with the other regular day teachers throughout the year to plan and prepare for the students. And yes, the students are motivated to attend Saturday School!
