Expanded Learning Opportunities at Birney Elementary School
Expanded Learning Centers are your child’s opportunity to plug into a variety of before, during and after school academic and enrichment activities, such as sports, the arts, STEM, and mentorship. These centers are a collaboration of youth-serving community partners in Tacoma, powered by Tacoma Whole Child Partnership. Together we are dedicated to the social, emotional, and academic success of your child. We aim to encourage, support, and challenge while having fun!

"Not only do Expanded Learning Opportunities provide a safe place for learning, connecting, and belonging, they also serve as a catalyst to help young people tap into natural gifts, talents, passions, and leadership skills."
