Agency Presentation
Kristin Lerner and Denise Tiemeyer, Oak Terrace PTA
In FY 2013-2014, Oak Terrace Elementary School PTA received a grant for Moraine Township for its TASK (The After School Kids) program. The PTA did not apply for a grant for FY 2014-2015; tonight's presentation to the Trustees served to report on the use of the FY 2013-2014 grant. TASK is an after-school program offering all students academic enrichment and physical activity classes, five days a week. 76% of Oak Terrace students fall below federal poverty line; Moraine Township's grant helped fund scholarships for 21 students for this program. TASK is popular with students and appreciated by parents as quality and affordable after-school child care.
