C.A.R.E. = Clubs, Academics, Recreation, Enrichment
C.A.R.E. provides safe and supervised after-school environments and enrichment activities to improve academic achievement and school participation. Using a Learning Center format, C.A.R.E. offers:
- Homework Assistance (1st-8th grades as assigned by school) and Computer Labs
- Academic Intervention and Enrichment Classes
- Physical Activities, Student Interest Clubs, Arts, and Games
At C.A.R.E., students learn and grow through play. Play provides students with an opportunity to learn while engaging in fun activities, to discover things about themselves, and to build social skills and confidence. Enrichment classes do not feel like traditional school as classes are filled with hands-on and "disguised-learning" activities. Examples of activities are arts and crafts, gardening, inventions, tournaments, individual and group games, and more. Please know that students are provided a nutritious afternoon snack daily and that homework assistance is open Mondays through Thursdays. Your student is called by grade level for homework assistance (i.e. 4th-8th at Bear River, 1st-5th at Lone Tree/Charter, 2nd-3rd at Wheatland Elementary). The homework center offers: a quiet environment for independent homework completion/reading; staff assistance with questions; staff check for homework completion (We do not correct homework); homework tracking charts & rewards; parent homework notices, as needed; and access to supplies that include, but are not limited to, pencils, erasers, rulers, measurement tables and charts. Students must attend the regular school day to attend the program - if students are signed out from the school day office and not signed back in to the school day office before school dismissal, then students may not attend the After School Program.
