Hall Passages: New Flagship after school program in Missoula offers academic, emotional support for students

October 11, 2018View for printing

"It's not so much focused on homework," said Nicole Miller, Flagship's program director. "It's more focused on skill building and the whole child."

On Wednesday, Oct. 10, a group of about 20 students gathered after the bell rang at Hawthorne Elementary to learn what their after-school activities entailed.

The students were part of the new Flagship program called Core that expands on after-school activities by providing students with additional academic and behavioral support, as well as outings organized by community partners.

While traditional Flagship programs meet weekly, students in the Core program meet five days a week, following a schedule that balances the time they spend in the classroom and participating in various activities.
