Congratulations to Glacier Valley and Riverbend elementary schools!


Thanks to the hard work of dedicated educators and concerned community members, our school district was awarded State of Alaska* grant funds to establish afterschool programs to benefit our students.

The vision and goals of the afterschool programs are to provide academic opportunities specifically in literacy, as well as enrichment activities, free of charge. On a typical afternoon, participating students first receive a snack and an opportunity for recreation. Then they are split into groups in which they receive literacy instruction as well as enrichment activities. Space is limited so preference is given to students identified with academic need in the area of literacy development.

Karen Goodell is the Director of the program and has been a teacher in the Juneau School District for over 30 years.
