Beyond the Bell

Project Kidz Connect

The PKC mission is to provide a safe environment that encourages students to achieve their learning goals, helps them develop healthy lifestyles, and enriches their understanding of their world and community.

Our daily program provides opportunities for students in homework assistance, literacy, physical activity, nutrition, and enrichment.

We promote diverse learning experiences designed to maximize each student’s potential.  We continue to support the skills students learn during the regular day, as well as enrich their understanding by introducing them to new experiences.
