After School Program Scholars are Learning to Play the Violin

The Omega CDC Scholars of H.O.P.E. After School Program is extremely honored and happy to announce a new enrichment. Our 3rd grade scholars will be learning to play the violin with Mrs. Lois Ramey, Stivers School for the Arts Instrumental Chair! Each of them will learn by using a borrowed instrument. Our goal is to eventually bless them with a violin that they can take home. Our scholars need and deserve quality after school programming!
