|What is SPARX?|
It is coordinated by Metro Parks with funding support from the City of Tacoma and facility support from Tacoma Public Schools.
Sparx and 21st Century Pilot Club will start Monday, September 17th 2012.
• Lunch time recreation
• After school mentoring, tutoring and enrichment programs.
• Field trips on school holidays and in-service days
With SPARX, middle schoolers are getting the added spark they need to get connected, stay in school, and achieve.
"Staying after school" is a good thing, thanks to SPARX. Kids will love all the great clubs and activities to choose from, and parents will love knowing their kids have somewhere safe and fun to go after school.
SPARX offers young people a safe place to hang out with their friends, choose from a variety of clubs and activities, or get help with schoolwork. The program offerings change every four weeks, so there's always cool stuff to do.
