SHINE Program
Team Kistler Families,

 The SHINE Program is offering 2 new initiatives for student families.  Please see below.  
1.    We are sponsoring free one-one tutoring for active SHINE students. Active means they are attending a minimum of 2 days a week. This is a great resource for families that have students that are experiencing difficulty in their day school work.
 
2.    We have a free Food Delivery Program.  This will deliver food 2 times a week to active SHINE families to help supplement their food budget during this difficult time.  The delivery will contain meats, vegetables and ready to eat items. Again the family must be an active SHINE family.
 
Both of these programs are available to new SHINE students. Please register through the portal.  Link is located on the flyer.   The food program is on a first come first serve basis.  Thank you.
