Our name is not all that has changed! New this school year, enrichment activities will align to daily themes. Be sure to check out the monthly calendar (available at each school site on the Thrive homepage) to see what your student is working on each day!

Students will continue to receive a free + healthy snack, work on homework/academics with support from a certified teacher, and will participate in enrichment opportunities.

We will continue to charge monthly program fees of $20/ month for the first student; $15/ month for the second student, and no charge for additional students. Payments can be made online via My School Bucks. We will not dismiss students for failure to pay and can coordinate a payment plan.

Thrive Spotlight: O’Connell School


O’Connell Students “GEAR UP” For Fire Safety Month: The East Hartford Fire Department visited the Thrive Programs at O'Connell School to teach students about fire safety. Students learned about when to call 9-1-1, how to "STOP, DROP & ROLL" and even got to try on some gear.

O'Connell East Site Coordinator, Ms. Harris, planned this interactive event with the EHFD. Ms. Harris said, "The expressions on the students' faces were priceless when they saw the fire trucks. They were very excited to get hats from the Fire Chief! When they drove off with the sirens blaring and lights flashing, the kids excitedly clapped and cheered! This was a successful surprise."
