Agassiz Baldwin Community Kindergarten and 1st-5th Grade Afterschool Programs serve local children and their families. Teachers present activities during community meetings and children make decisions about how they spend their time after school. Past activities include organized sports and games, jewelry making, philosophy, origami, gymnastics, juggling, batik, fashion design, gardening, cooking, and more!
