GREENE – After 26 years of providing after-school care to students in the Greene community, Greene Cares is closing its doors on Wednesday.
“We’re dissolving,” explained Bonnie Hayes, the after-school program’s long-time administrator.
The program currently serves 30 students in Kindergarten through sixth grade. It follows the school calendar, providing care from approximately 1:50 to 5 p.m. each week day while school is in session. During that time, the kids engage in a number of activities including arts and crafts and gym time. They can also get homework help, or use the computer. Each year they put on a talent show, and recently wrote letters to soldiers serving in Iraq.
