• MISSION STATEMENT

    The mission of the Gordon County Schools After School Program (ASP) is to strive to establish a safe and caring environment that allows for individual and social growth. Children engage in activities that encourage creativity, social relationships, appropriate behavior, and a positive self-image. Activities include study time, recreational activities, arts and crafts, and other enrichment activities. Snacks are provided, and as an extension of Gordon County elementary schools, are peanut free.
