Comments from CMS ASP Students

Some of out students took some time to type up their thoughts about after-school program  so far:

We are reading
The Magic Thief in Book Club. It is about a boy that stole a stone from a tall man and the tall man knows that the boy has the stone. I liked when we made black bean brownies at after-school. We made cats and a lot of other art as well. I had fun when Zac and I played cards.

I love getting to do art at after school. It's fun!

I like when we cook black bean brownies and pizzas. I liked learning about Monet. I like the arts and crafts.

I loved when the people came from Keep Chadron Beautiful to help us pick up trash. I liked it because it was fun and I got to use a trash picker upper.

I've done Tile Painting and Dr. Dodgeball. I painted a flower and a person shooting a basketball. In Dr. Dodgeball I was sweating like crazy. It was so fun! After school program is so fun!

Maker Space: Biomedical Engineering Week

Maker space: Biomedical Engineering Week
  Have you ever had a plan to build the next big thing?  Students have the opportunity to build, create and explore in the Maker space at CMS.  Each week features a specialty topic with smaller activities that relate.  Biomedical Engineering encompasses a variety of different topics.  The broken bones activity will give students a chance to build a cast/ splint device.  

The nano-particles activity will challenge students to create a way to keep their particles from sticking to the inside of a blood vessel.   

The Alginate polymers activity will give students a better understanding of how pill coatings affect how medicines are absorbed by the body.

     "Attending afterschool programs can improve students' academic performance.  A national evaluation found that over 40 percent of students attending 21st Century Community Learning Center Programs improved their reading and math grades and that those who attended more regularly were more likely to make gains.  Students who attended afterschool programs have also shown that they benefit socially and have a higher school day attendance rate." (Naftzer et. al, 2007) 

     After school programming will begin on Tuesday, August 22nd.  The Middle school Program begins at 3:25and wraps up at 6:00 pm.  Programming days are Monday through Thursday.   We also offer academic assistance on early out Fridays.  Besides having the option of a nutritious snack, students are given the choice of which activities they are going to participate in.  The main focus of the program can be summed up by thinking S.T.E.A.M.
