ASCEND Calendar



The ASCEND program is a collaboration between Curry Public Library and Central Curry School District to provide positive after school activities for kids in 6th-8th grades. The program:

  1. Provides opportunities for academic enrichment
  2. Works with community partners to offer an array of programs and activities to promote exploratory learning
  3. Helps students transition from middle to high school
  4. Promotes meaningful family dialogue about important topics

Activities are held at the Curry Public Library and Riley Creek School, with some programming and activities off-site. Healthy snacks are provided every day. Generally, the program operates four days a week, on shortened school days, and on in-service days.


Check out our daily program schedule, learn about special events, and RSVP for programs with capped attendance at our ONLINE CALENDAR.
