The Afterschool Program is an enrichment program for students grades K-6.
The program runs Mondays-Thursdays afterschool during the school year. The program is open to public, private, and home school students and is a collaboration between the Embudo Valley Library and the Embudo Valley Tutoring Association, who provides a program assistant.
This program is funded by United Way of Northern New Mexico. New Mexico Arts provides funding for professional arts instruction in the afterschool program.
The Caterpillar Club - Family Fun STEM to READ Early Literacy
