LINC Caring Communities Before & After School programs will hold celebrations including science fairs, reading activities, and potluck dinners as part of Lights On Afterschool, a nationwide rally for afterschool programs that is expected to see more than 1 million Americans attend more than 8,000 events this year.
See the growing list of LINC Lights On events here, and contact your LINC site coordinator about getting involved.
LINC afterschool programs serve more than 7,500 students in the Kansas City, Hickman Mills, Grandview, Center and North Kansas City school districts.
