PIC hosts Lights on Afterschool
On Thursday, October 30, PIC will host its first Lights on Aftershool event from 4:00 - 5:00 pm. Please join us in the Stucco Building for a mini-art festival and "lighting" ceremony.
As a registered participant in this nation-wide "call to attention," we acknowledge the need for more, and celebrate the growth of quality after-school programs.
While participating after school programs officially celebrated on October 23, our ceremony on October 30 will emphasize the idea that attention to the need for after school programs needn't be limited to one day!
Lights on Afterschool is a nationwide effort sponsored by the Afterschool Alliance to remind communities and legislators about the importance of safe and enriching out-of-school-time activities for children.
Read about the state of afterschool care in Pennsylvania in a recent study, which reflects the rise in children enrolled in after school programs since 2004, as well as the increasing unmet need for quality programs in the Commonwealth.
