It has been my pleasure to accept the role of Interim After School Program Director since November 2015.
So, what are we doing during the after school program? We begin with quiet choice; Lego blocks, art, coloring, reading and various games. I believe it to be very important to teach the children to make good choices during this free time. After activities, the children enjoy a healthy snack and then some fresh air outside to expend their energy. This allows the children to play freely together, building on collaboration and developing a healthy camaraderie.
It is most important to me that all the children feel comfortable at After School, so I try very hard to ensure a secure and respectful environment. In addition, I think it is essential they develop creativity as a tool for them to use now and in the future. If you are able to supply items such as egg cartons, paper towel cardboard rolls, old fabric or clothing, or anything you may be able to provide that lends itself to making arts and crafts, please bring these items to After School or to the main office.
I appreciate you placing your trust in me with your wonderful children. Should you have any questions or suggestions for me, please do not hesitate to contact me.
