Abstract:  Project Launch Newton is a free out-of-school time enrichment program offered in the Merriam Avenue Elementary School and the Halsted Middle School to children in grades 4 – 8 who reside in the Newton, New Jersey, school district. Project Launch Newton is a unique collaboration between Project Self-Sufficiency and the Newton School District. Children participate in academic enrichment, creative pursuits, fitness and physical education, health and nutrition activities designed around a Science, Integration of Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) theme.  Monthly Family Fun Nights allow parents and children to gather for dinner and a presentation about the month's activities. Transportation by bus is available to students to designated bus stops at the close of the program day.
