What is RASP?

RASP (Roadrunner After-School Programs) will start Session IV on March 19th and end on May 17th.  RASP provides the program(s) to our PDSD students from second through fourth grades.  The program runs daily from Monday through Friday starting at 3:10 p.m. and done at 5:30 p.m.  The students ride on the sport buses home or be picked up by their parents at SPAC on PDSD campus.

The focus of RASP is to provide support to our students for their academic needs first and then provide fun educational activities to develop different kinds of skills that they can apply to their lives as they grow up.  Right after school, students will receive academic support from staff members.  While they do their homework, read books, or study for their classes, they receive healthy snacks.  After the completion of homework support, our students are assigned to different activities (sporting clinics, cooking, crafting, and a variety of games).  These activities are equally important for our students to develop their skills to maximize their learning opportunities, not only at school, but also applying to their everyday life.

The fee is $30 per RASP session (twelve weeks).  If families are interested in signing up their PDSD students, they can sign up.  The deadline to submit paperwork for Session IV will be Friday, March 9, 2018.

Looking forward to another great RASP year!
