AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAM
The After School Education and Safety (ASES) Program provides FREE supervised activities until 6:00 PM for students at the elementary schools, every day that school is in session during the regular school year.
The ASES Program provides a fun, safe, stimulating environment for students! Studies show that participation in the ASES Program increases students’ attachment to their schools, improves test scores, and keeps kids out of trouble.
Activities vary by school, but each program includes these components:
HOMEWORK TIME: Students have the opportunity to complete their homework, with supervision and assistance from teachers and trained staff.
ENRICHMENT ACTIVITIES: Some schools offer dance or drama, others offer crafts, but all have fun classes and activities designed to explore learning opportunities that may not be available during the school day.
SPORTS AND GAMES: Every school has an intramural sports program, open to all students after school. For those not interested in organized sports, outdoor games and activities provide an outlet for all that school energy!
SOCIAL ACTIVITIES: Each site program is staffed by trained personnel who relate well to students. Through directed activities, the staff provides a safe, fun, and social environment.
