Arts & Recreation
In addition to the STEAM Program, we will offer other after-school services to help kids stay safe, engaged, and productive. These services will include After-school Learning Center, Sports & Recreation, Kids and Arts, and Community Engagement (volunteering).
While students are our future leaders and schools are our greatest resources- parents are our strongest advocates for after-school programming.
A recent study among parents of Wisconsin states that:
70% say after-school programs help them keep their jobs
58% say after-school programs keep their kids excited about learning
75% say an after-school program reduces the likelihood that their kids will engage in risky behavior
After-school programs offer:
Extra exposure to learning and exploring
Opportunity for students to follow their passions
Equal opportunity for all - as the wealthiest 20% of families spend almost seven times more on enrichment activities outside of school for their children than do the poorest 20%*
Legitimate chance to close the opportunity gap by offering engaging programs to a diverse range of students
