Local schools keep students engaged long after the last bell

By Caroline Blackmon

Unicycling, nutrition workshops and homework do not usually go together. Students at Central Elementary and Maury River Middle schools, however, can combine these activities, and more, in their schools’ afterschool enrichment programs, as teachers stay after work to keep their young charges engaged. Afterschool programs at Central Elementary will continue until the middle of February while Maury River Middle School’s new programs will run until the end of May.
