About B.L.A.S.T 

The B.L.A.S.T(Best Life After School Team) After School Program is provided at no cost to families and is open to all Marsh Jr. students (students are added to the waiting list once program is full -- CURRENTLY FULL). Students receive academic support during HW Hour, an optional snack during Snack Break, and the freedom to choose which recreational or enrichment activity they would like to participate in.  These activities rotate on a daily basis and range from more active physical activities (kickball, indoor soccer, capture the flag, basketball, etc.) to more mellow and enriching activities (garden club, ceramics, beads, board games, etc.)
