Having fun in ACE after learning time! We have spots open in Junior High and we’d love for students to join the ACE program. We do cooking, robotics, arts and crafts, and all kinds of fun stuff in ACE. It’s way more fun than playing on devices and watching TV in the afternoons, plus you have help with your homework and getting better in reading and math! Contact Satriani Carrillo at Gerdes Junior High if you are interested.
