The LSSC Afterschool Program has been a wonderful addition to the programming we offer students. On any given evening there are currently more than 125 students on campus after school hours for this new initiative. The program includes a snack, homework help/tutoring, fitness, Choice Experiences and SEL Moments. Taking a program conceived on paper to live implementation takes some time for adjustment as well as time for procedures and processes to be refined. We have learned that the student participants are ready for the snack and appreciate the opportunity to get their homework started and many times completed before they get home for the evening. The students enjoy the fitness time and getting to take a physical break from activities. The most popular activities have been during Choice Experiences. We are fortunate that our community has embraced the afterschool program and provide some wonderful activities for our students to take part in. The elementary schedule below shows the times for these activities. The middle/senior high schedule is similar with school dismissal starting at 3:10pm M-Th and 2:10 F. The Monday through Thursday elementary schedule is below. School Dismissal 2:55pm Attendance/Snack 3:00-3:15 Homework/Tutoring 3:15-4:15 Fitness Break 4:14-4:30 SEL Moments (M/W) 4:30-5:30 Choice Experience (T/TH) 4:30-5:30 Friday Schedule School Dismissal 1:55 Attendance/Snack 2:00-2:20 Free Time/Fitness 2:20-3:15 Homework/Tutoring 3:15-4:15 SEL Moment 4:15-5:00 In a recent evaluation meeting, it was determined that pick-up scattered at any time throughout the program day was cumbersome, disruptive, and difficult to manage. For this purpose, we have defined pick-up times to be between 4:15pm after homework/tutoring is complete and the end of the program day. This new pick-up schedule will begin after Fall Break on Monday, October 18th. We will continue to evaluate the afterschool program and will be looking for parent feedback in a survey at the end of the semester. New student participants are always welcome! To get signed-up, just contact Program Director, Jared Sanders, at 812 -847-6039.
