How do Afterschool Programs help the community?:
The Lexington Afterschool Programs would like to provide students with additional learning opportunities. The program would like to extend student learning beyond the school day, focusing on academics, homework help, physical activity, healthy eating, and engaging educational activities. Lexington Afterschool Programs would like to continue to provide children and youth a place after school that is safe, supervised, and engaging. This program will also help meet the needs of working families.
What do Afterschool Programs hope to accomplish?
Lexington Afterschool Programs would like to reach 60 students at each elementary school and provide services in the areas of homework help and supplemental education through enrichment activities. The Lexington Afterschool Programs would also like to reach out to community organizations or volunteers and ask for their involvement in the programs. They can share their expertise or resources with the program or students.
