January 14, 2013: Boys and Girls Club Announces A Program for Middle School Students
Who Want to Advance Their Math Skills
The program uses the Khan Academy* software, a highly successful and widely
used on-line learning system, combined with active hands-on instruction guided
by coaches, practical “real world” problem solving, and active games that make
math fun to learn!
Focused on 6th graders but also useful for 5th graders who are advanced or
7th graders who may need some extra help.
Each Friday (that the Salida Middle School is not in session) for 8 weeks
from 9:00–10:30 am beginning February 1 through March 29. A second 8 week
program begins April 5 through May 24.
Salida Boys & Girls Club Tech Center, 340 E. 5th Street, Salida.
The regular $10 fee for club members for Friday mornings will be reduced
by 50% for this program if paid in advance for the 8 week session ($40).
Fee waivers are available for families unable to afford the fee.
