smART Kids After School Program: Kindergarden to 5th Grade
Every day of the school year over 250 kindergarten through fifth grade students from 30 Bronx schools attend the smART Kids after school program. During their time at Casita Maria the students are exposed to a wide range of educational opportunities. Following a healthy snack in our cafeteria, some students go for homework help, some pick up their violins and take them to their violin lessons, others go to the gym for sports, and others go to the theater for their drama class. During their time in the program smART Kids students learn important social and interpersonal skills, while improving their ability to study and improve their grades.
