B Sharp After School is based at the Leadership Academy at Como Elementary and is open to all 2nd-5th grade students in FWISD. Enrollment in the B Sharp After School program is free. Students receive music instruction after school each day (following the FWISD calendar) in the form of the following: full orchestra, wind ensemble, string ensemble, instrument sectionals, music theory, and drum circle. These classes are organized by ability-based learning groups. Additionally, students receive social skills classes (life skills in 3-5 steps taught using the Boys Town Education Model) and feelings/emotions classes (instructional classes that help students learn how to handle their emotions). The students receive a meal each afternoon provided by the Tarrant Area Food Bank.
