This grant provides educational experiences for our students with before and after school programs and parent support. These programs help our students and families meet state and local student performance standards by improving academics, attendance, behavior, promotion and graduation rates. Our services and programs include both enrichment and academic activities. Students are encouraged but not required to participate in the program.
Activities include tutoring sessions for students who need additional academic assistance, interactive math, science, reading and writing activities and enrichment activities in sports, crafts, fitness and nutrition. Some of our current classes include computer labs, literacy groups, musical instruments and singing, art, cooking basketball, running and walking, chess, vocabulary, soccer, jewelry making, reader’s theater, serial writing, puppetry, aerobics, recycling, animal-links, yo-yo, health and body, ghost stories, and tutorials in science, reading and math. Parental classes and workshops are available in language, GED prep, and life skills.
