Applications are now available for the new after-school program slated to open in Andalusia in January.

The program, called A.P.P.L.E., is a joint effort of the Andalusia City Schools and the City of Andalusia, and is funded with the help of a 21st Century Learning Grant.

The program is free, and will provide transportation to students from Andalusia Elementary School and the Andalusia Junior High School. It will be housed at the Woodson Learning Center, currently known as the Andalusia Middle School.

The program will run from 3 p.m. until 6 p.m. daily, and it is the responsibility of parents to pick up children by 6. Late fees will be assessed.

After school activities will include tutoring and homework help, recreational athletics, computer concepts, arts, and home economics. Healthy snacks will be provided.

Applications, which were sent home with students this week, should be returned to the teachers by Fri., Nov. 7, 2014.
