Transportation for private school and home schooled students is arranged by parents.

"Students receive a healthy snack when they arrive, and they are hungry!" laughs Linda Elkins, a volunteer for the program. "We divide into several centers and begin the art activities and rotate among the centers so that volunteer helping hands can assist students," Elkins said.

"We hope to see many returning students and new ones join with us for the fun activities we are planning this year," said Nancy Marshall another volunteer in the program. If you have questions, call the Plaza Arts Center 706-923-1655.
