AfterSchool: The UpRiver Panther’s AfterSchool program has not ceased to work on behalf of their program participants. The program is making sure that all the students have the school supplies they need to be successful with distance learning. The AfterSchool program is gearing up for another round of school supplies.

The gardening program was very popular last year, and the daffodils in the planters in front of the school are a result of that program. To continue that, the program will be sending take-home gardening projects to the UpRiver students and partnering with the community, the Master Gardeners, and families to plant the raised beds this summer.

A sports program was launched this year, and Little League has not been cancelled. Coach Trish Hunter has her athletes running drills and will be posting videos on the UpRiver Panther AfterSchool Facebook page. The new Facebook page will also begin featuring videos on gardening and nutrition as well as baseball skills.
