Celebrating Afterschool Programs

Hundreds of Brownsville’s students, parents and business and community leaders are invited to attend the first “Lights On Afterschool” Rally to be held in the Garcia Middle School gym and cafeteria on Thursday, October 20 from 4:30-6:30 PM. The event is designed to celebrate the achievements of afterschool students and draw attention to the need for more afterschool programs such as the Texas 21st Century Program. Similar events will be held nationwide on the same day to emphasize the importance of keeping the lights on and the doors open for afterschool programs. BISD’s “Lights On Afterschool” Rally will showcase activities from participating schools across the district. For more information, contact the BISD Grants/Texas 21st Century Program Department, Dwayne Salinas, 698-0248.
