Kidz Quest will provide academic support through reading, writing, and STEAM learning.

Students will also be provided opportunities for community involvement through special guests and planned field trips, physical activity, and team-building.

All programs and activities are planned and designed to improve social skills, inspire learning, develop confidence, and build relationships.

Kidz Quest will operate out of the respective schools from 4-6 p.m. Monday through Friday and will follow the school district calendar.
