The Jefferson park and recreation department will once again offer ReCharge Wednesdays thanks to generous sponsorship by the providers of McFarland Clinic-Jefferson.

ReCharge Wednesdays meets every Wednesday afternoon from 2:15 to 3:30 pm at the Greene County Community Center. The program is open to students in grades 1-8. The younger students are met by JPRD staff at the middle school bus drop-off and escorted to the community center.

Participants play organized group activities indoors or outside, depending on the weather, and they also have a healthy snack. The class helps children learn to make healthy choices in what they eat and they activities they choose.  There is no charge to families.

Recharge Wednesday begins Sept. 2. The program does not meet when school is not in session or dismisses early due to weather. Children must be registered to attend. For a registration form, click here: Recharge Wednesday
