Drop Zone is a free after school program at Rush Creek for 5th through 8th graders on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons from 3:00 to 5:30 during the school year.  Since 2010 Drop Zone has sought to come along side students and their families by providing a safe, fun, educational environment where positive relationships can be built.
