Students Who Attend Afterschool Programs.....

Students Who Attend After School Programs.....

     "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. This stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, ACADEMICS and Math.  5th- 8th grades students are invited to attend daily or whenever their schedule allows.  7th and 8th grade students who are out for extracurricular activities are welcome to join in programming after they finish their practices.  This gives them the opportunity to eat a snack and finish up any homework they might have.  Coaches can and will let students back in the building for this purpose.

Let us know how we can help your child reach their goals!!
