Parents get better understanding, excited about new before and after school organization with Midland ISD

MIDLAND, TX (KWES) - What is Right At School? Parents wanted to know more, and when they understood, became excited at the possibilities.

"I think MISD needs change and after school programs are huge," said Denise Norman, Parent.

Denise Norman can't wait for her son to start.

"His in kindergarten at Pease," said Norman.

The district announced the change to Right At School last month. Officials from the organization were on hand to speak to parents about what to expect. From costs, to what's in store for the kids the minute they are greeted by employees.

Back to Denise, she wants to make sure the right people are around her child.

"You just want the best for them and you want to make sure they're surrounded with positive people to teach them to learn and be engaged," said Norman.

Denise works, her husband John works so they want this idea to work as well.

"Right now, after school care there's not a lot to choose from. Everybody wants different things for their kids but I think we all agree on curriculum, learning, and having fun," said Norman.

Denise has a sense of eagerness about this idea, and would love to see the same emotion in her child next year.

"I'm excited to hear about his day and what they learned, not just at school anymore but after school," said Norman.

The new support for students will be available at all elementary schools.

The district says a record of 300 families have already pre-registered.
