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 program is coordinated across all of the elementary campuses and provides a fun, safe, stimulating environment for students! Studies show that participation in an afterschool program increases students’ attachment to their schools, improves test scores, and keeps kids out of trouble.
Responding to the needs of our families, Lemoore Union Elementary School District has partnered with the California Teaching Fellows Foundation to provide an after school program at our four elementary school sites. Offering this program is part of the District's commitment to providing a safe environment and enriching the school experience for our students while enabling schools to continue a focus on their academic mission.
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 art, robotics, dance, and/or crafts, but all sites have fun classes and activities designed to explore learning opportunities that may not be available during the school day.
FITNESS: Every school has a fitness program component where all students participating in the program will engage in outdoor recreational activities including sports, games and exercise.
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 enriching social environment.
The deadline to register for the After School Program for the 2020-2021 school year is June 30, 2020. The program is scheduled to begin on the first day of school (August 11, 2020). After the deadline, registrations will continue to be accepted but enrollment is subject to space availability and a later start date.
Every year families will need to reapply for the After School Program. By filling out the registration form using the link provided below, your child will be part of a selection process for admission into the After School Program. Due to the limited number of available seats, not all applicants will be admitted into the program.
The google form links above will stop receiving responses on July 31, 2020. A lottery will be held on August 5th to identify students who will participate in the program. ASES staff will notify parents of students who have been selected for the program between August 6th - August 10th. Any student who is not selected to participate will be placed on the school's waiting list. As space becomes available throughout the year, the ASES staff members will contact parents in the order of the student placement on the list.
