Marathon, FL- Due to the need for after school care for Marathon families, Marathon Lutheran School is excited to now offer tuition scholarships.
Children in grades K through 5 can get transportation from Switlik Elementary School to Marathon Lutheran School (across from San Pablo and behind the Napa Auto Parts Building) where they will receive homework help, outside playtime, craft and cooking opportunities, nature study activities, and lots of loving care. The After school program at Marathon Lutheran School is open until 5:30 PM Monday through Friday. This care is provided on early dismissal days, as well as most school holidays. An Early Childhood Center for children ages 1-5 is also at this location.
United Way of the Florida Keys is funding the scholarship program with $5,000 in grant money to the school. This will help offset the cost of aftercare to families that of these children, so that they may have a safe environment to spend the afternoon while parents are finishing their work day.
More information about this program, including enrollment information and scholarship applications, may be obtained by calling Marathon Lutheran School at 305-735-4762 or emailing MarathonLutheran@gmail.com.
