Allowing Students to Prosper In Recreation and Education

The Before and After School Childcare Program, called the ASPIRE Program (Allowing Students to Prosper In Recreation and Education), is available before school from 6:30 AM until school begins and after school (2:20 PM Monday – Thursday, 12:45 PM Friday) until 6:00 PM. Organized activities directed by our staff include painting on various medians, several arts & crafts activities, board games, outdoor games, & other creative activities that keep the children involved and captivated. In addition, our staff supervises a study hour during which students must either complete homework or read a book. Students can get help on homework items simply by asking a staff member. For the younger students in the early reading stages, our staff will take time to read stories and assist them in reading appropriate level books.
