Superintendent Latham ended the LEO after-school program at the Ford School for 100 children, leaving the Highlands with no after-school activities. The HEY (Healthy Eating Youth) Club is a small replacement for Highlands youth. Kids 9-12 years old prepare, cook, and eat healthy foods, participate in group exercise, and do their homework. Watch the video below!
