Greetings and welcome to our new and exciting STARS program! The STARS program has undergone some changes during the summer to better serve the youth of Corvallis. The staff has worked very hard to develop a creative, fun, and supportive academic program that encourages students to get involved in discovering and enjoying the world they live in. This year's STARS program curriculum will be guided through hands on activities in a fun, safe, and positive environment that will enable each child to burn off some energy ("get the wiggles out"), get in some supported homework time, and have fun with creative curricular elements designed to be both academically meaningful and engaging. The STARS program will also be enriched with OSU students, community members, and community organizations that visit the different sites and present interesting and relevant learning activities. STARS is currently still accepting students for the 2012-13 school year.
