After School Programs Are Here!

“Nourish beginnings, let us nourish beginnings. Not all things are blest, but the seeds of all things are blest. The blessing is in the seed.” --Muriel Rukeyser


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!

Revisit our online orientations from Sept. 2 & 3 in the Google Drive:



September Birthdays-

  • Since the time the Connect newsletter went out, we've added new staff and new September birthdays to celebrate! If you see the following folks, wish them a big happy day:

    • Jazmine Harrison (Arrowwood Hills Assistant Director) - September 17

CAN Fall Family Fun Day-

Upcoming Staff Meetings- In the Fall, our weekly rotation of staff meetings will be as follows:

  1. Management Meeting

  2. All Staff/Interns Meeting

  3. Management Meeting

  4. 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:

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!
