Dance.  Dance.  Dance. 

One of the most popular activities of the children.  Learning and practice is followed by a recital.    


Rim Country Literacy offers after school reading for children in grades K-5.  Children attend for a 20 minute session twice a week.  The Rim Literacy volunteers work with the children in small groups or one-on-one.  Children read online and print books based on their reading level.  Kindergartners work on building their literacy skills.

The program continues through the summer when additional Math activities are added.
