Fun food, giant games, and happy sounds abounded at our main office last week as our After School Program celebrated the end of the school year. Students from all the districts had so much fun with their group party, they wished that school would never end. Well, almost. Summer has a way of flying by with adventures of its own and before you know it, September will be here and the students will be returning to school. Until then, we wish our students and their families a fantastic summer break!
The After School Program (ASP) provides an environment for students to socialize with peers between the time the school day ends and the parent’s work day is complete. Participants in ASP have the opportunity to engage in activities, socialize with others, complete homework together, and achieve daily goals. Each day there are new activities for the students to participate in, such as cooking, crafting, watching movies, and even going on field trips. Students look forward to socializing with their peers after their school day and parents enjoy the peace of mind that comes with knowing that when they are unable to be present, a dedicated staff of skilled adults is ensuring their loved one is being cared for.
The program supports children and adolescents through age 21 and operates Monday through Friday, from 2:00 pm to 6:00 pm, September through June, following the host school district’s calendar of operation. Transportation to the program is provided by the student’s home school district and families are responsible for picking up their children by 6:00 pm.
We are accepting applications for the After School Program for the 2023- 2024 school year at all our locations, although some sites have waitlists.
