After School Sites

BACK TO AFTER SCHOOL TIME!

We hope you had a safe, fun holiday!  Our After School coordinators are excited to begin 2017 with even more fun activities, homework help and opportunities for our students to spend time with friends.  Thinking of enrolling your child?  Please don't wait.  Spots are limited and they fill fast!  If you have a child in grades 2-5 in a Bedford County school, please contact your After School coordinator today. Click on the After School sites to the left and visit specific school district sites to gather information and downloadable enrollment forms.   We are looking forward to another fantastic year of After School and hope you are too!

 

 

The After School Coordinator's Recommended App

News-O-Matic  is a daily news and activity app for kids in grades 2-5. Teachers and kids can read five current events articles daily, answer questions, chat with classmates about the stories, and send comments or questions to the editor. Topics include everything from religion and politics to scientific discoveries and kid entrepreneurs. A child psychologist reviews the articles for age-appropriateness, and each day teachers get a Teacher's Guide via email that has discussion questions, assessment questions correlated to a Common Core standard, and more. A "Read to Me" feature allows kids to hear stories via a narrator as an alternative to reading them, and stories are also available in Spanish translations. Kids and teachers can look forward to new articles each day of the school year.

Here's what we've been doing at After School!
