Dear Parent or Guardian,
We are excited to continue to offer an After School
Program at Carroll Elementary, Monahan Elementary, and Sheldon Elementary. As
you are aware, the 21st Century After School Program funding has
ended. However, it is our goal to
continue to offer an After School Program to engage students in a way that they
must take knowledge learned and apply it artistically, creatively, and
innovatively through interactive lessons and activities. The program is designed to increase students'
capacity to grow and learn through exploration and discovery while supporting
the academics in the areas of reading, writing, mathematics, science, and social
studies. The program will also continue to offer enrichment activities to
extend and expand students' learning as it relates to literacy and numeracy
such as karate, cooking, dance, etc.
Due to our limited grant funding, the program will
be a “fee based” Academic Enrichment Program available to elementary students in
grades 1-5. The fees are as follows: $20.00 for registration (one time annual fee)
and $30.00 per week, per child. You may pay by Cashier’s Check or Money Order. Cash
and Personal Checks are not accepted. The weekly fee will be collected in advance on a
monthly basis. The due date will be the first Friday of each month.
If you are interested in this
wonderful opportunity for your family, please fill out the attached form and return
it to your child’s teacher by Tuesday, August 23rd. We only have 40
available openings on each campus so please make sure your application is
returned by the 23rd.
Letters will be sent home on Tuesday, August 23,
2016 stating whether or not your child was selected to participate in the program.
Please make sure you include a contact number on your form. Each campus will
hold a mandatory registration meeting
based on the schedule below:
Wednesday, August 24, 2016 6:00 – 7:00 p.m.
Thursday, August 25, 2016 5:30 - 6:30 p.m.
Thursday, August 25, 2016 6:30 - 7:30 p.m.
The parents of the student chosen to participate in
the program must attend this meeting. If
you do not attend this meeting and your child was selected for the program or
you do not pay the registration fee by the stated time, we will have to replace
your child’s name with the next person on the waiting list. The initial fee of
$20 for registration and $30 for the week of August 29th must be
paid in advance before students may attend the program. Therefore, parents are
expected to bring a money order in the amount of $50.00 at the mandatory
meeting on your child’s campus.
We have a great program planned with many new
activities and all the favorites from last year. We will also offer an optional
summer camp that will be filled with fun, learning experiences. More
information will be provided during the spring semester. We would love to serve your family this year!
