Tashua School’s Academic Excellence Committee will be offering the option to take part in various programs that will be either during or after school.  Please let us know if your child is interested in participating in any of these programs.   Based on response level, we will form groups and select dates and times.  We’ll also be looking for parent volunteers to help run each group.
