WATERVLIET- Eight after-school programs get a breath of new life at Watervliet Elementary and Junior-Senior High Schools.
The Arsenal Business and Technology Partnership is donating money for the restoration of several after-school programs that were eliminated from the budget at the beginning of the school year.
The programs include the Buddy mentoring Program, marching band, art and chess clubs, environmental and ski clubs, band and an acappella singing group.
The money will also be used to restore two days of late afternoon bus runs for elementary students staying late for the programs.
The money was raised at the Arsenal’s annual September golf outing.
