The BLAST after school program is a FREE, federally-funded program open to all Bidwell students. BLAST offers a highly structured environment that is designed to further students both academically and as responsible young adults. After school program staff members are highly qualified and passionate about encouraging all students to work hard, have fun, and be the best Pioneer they can be. The program fills up quickly and a waiting list is put into place at the beginning of the school year; please sign your student up early. We look forward to meeting you!
