After-School Program

Dear Parents/Guardians:

Welcome to the Italian American Civil Rights League (I.A.C.R.L) After School Program at Brooklyn Urban Garden Charter School(BUGS). This program is funded by NYC Department of Youth & Community Development (DYCD) and is provided at no cost to families. I am the Program Director, Ms. Kirnon and I am pleased to have the opportunity to work with you and your child(ren) this 2018-2019 school year.

This is a COMPASS/SONYC program, which focuses on academic and recreational enrichment.  All students are required to have two (2) hours of STEM and Leadership weekly in conjunction with extracurricular activities.  A portion of the program will offer homework help, tutoring, test prep and study hall sessions. Student attendance is imperative for funding; therefore, students MUST attend at least four times a week in order to maintain a slot in the program.  If your child has not attended regularly they will jeopardize their enrollment status and will be dropped from the program.  Please inform the program director of any projected absences.

Afterschool is a year-round program and operates during some holidays and summer camp season.  The school year program will operate five (5) days a week, M/W 3:00-6:30 pm and Tu./Th./Fri. 4:00-6:30 pm.  If you have any further question or concerns, please contact me via email at or by phone at (718)280-9556 ext. 514

If you are interested in this opportunity please submit a completed application with current medical record to main office or your child’s advisor. I look forward providing your child with an enriching afterschool experience.  Thanking you in advance for support and collaboration in making this a successful school year.


Ms. Kirnon
