After School Program Orientation-
We've now had the great opportunity to start getting to know one another as we begin our journey linked elbow in elbow into the 2021-22 school year. We hope you have a great first day of After School Program and many more to come!

CAN Fall Family Fun Day-
October 9 from 10am-12:30 at Bryant Community Center- Invite your friends and family to buy tickets and support CAN! There will be fun events, tours, and opportunities to work on a Strive to Thrive project, highlighting the awesome CAN Art & Design program.
Upcoming Staff Meetings- In the Fall, our weekly rotation of staff meetings will be as follows:
All Staff/Interns Meeting
Off-Week / Meet on as-needed basis (e.g. Anyone who needs to touch base with specific people can set aside these Fridays to schedule those meetings with whomever it makes the most sense to include)
That means for September, our meeting schedule as of right now will look as follows:
September 3, Management Meeting: 1-2pm
September 10, All Staff* Meeting: 1-3pm
September 17, Management Meeting: 1-2pm
September 24, Meet As-Needed (times will vary)
*All staff are invited to attend- these are mandatory for Directors & VISTAs; Program Assistants and Interns are welcome to join if available.
You can also view our more dynamic schedule on CAN's Google Calendar: https://calendar.google.com/calendar/u/2?cid=aW5mb3JtYXRpb250ZWNobm9sb2d5QGNhbndhc2h0ZW5hdy5vcmc
Google Calendars are a helpful tool CAN uses so we can make updates and share them out with all of our stakeholders in case anything changes!
