Boks Program Info!

We have a great program that is coming soon to our school. Right now the team is working on the details of the program as it has a lot of moving parts.
We know that the calendar says that it will start on Sept. 26th; however, after attending the training in August, we realized that we need to take this a little slower.
We are going to be having a 6-week pilot program that will more than likely start in November! We will make sure to get out the details to all of you about signing up for this awesome program.
Thank you to those that are interested in volunteering as well as those that have inquired about signing up!
