We plan to offer guitar lessons again next year with an option for students to take lessons twice a week (1/2 hour each time). . . Let us know your thoughts. Thanks Ryan Radke for another great year of lessons!  A+ purchased 3 used guitars this year for students to practice with if they do not have their own. Help us put them to good use next year!

The A+ After School Programs at Redgranite and Parkside participated in Archery Lessons through Shooters Choice Archery Products this Spring. Students attended weekly lessons for 4 weeks learning about the proper stance and form as well as focus and patience.  We are happy to report many of the students tried archery for the first time and want to continue in the sport!  We plan to partner with Shooters Choice Archery next year! Shooters Choice even gave us a 1/2 discount (donation) and fixed our broken arrows :)
