CVS supports extended day middle schools

The three BPS middle schools that extended their school day this year got a boost yesterday from CVS, which presented a $100,000 donation to support the Extended Learning Time initiative at the Edwards Middle School in Charlestown, Timilty Middle School in Roxbury and Umana/Barnes Middle School in East Boston. The longer school day at these schools includes more instructional time in core academic subjects, as well as more time for tutoring, arts, and recreation.
