Enrich. Discover. Grow. Encourage.

The EDGE After-School Program provides recreational activities for low-income children ages 5-12, Monday-Friday, who attend Betz Elementary. EDGE establishes a learning center that provides academic, artistic, and cultural enrichment opportunities for children from lower-income families. Children must be recommended by the school counselor to participate in this program.This program is also intended to offer students a broad array of recreational activities and to include families and the community in the educational process. EDGE is a fee-based program for up to 30 students. Those 30 students will be picked by the school counselor. 

The EDGE Program will operate every day school is in session, from the time school is dismissed until 5:30 p.m.
