About 20 years ago a hundred million dollar Federal Grant was created, the 21st Century Community Learning Centers (21st CCLC) to create an enriched afterschool program. Today, that grant is $104 billion dollars and available to schools who apply and meet their criteria.
This year and for the next five years (I plan on re-applying!), Assumption Catholic School with the Academy for Urban Leadership Charter School have been awarded. Based on our enrollment, this means approximately $100,000 to offer a FREE aftercare program for grades 3 to 8. This is such a blessing for our school! We have been given the opportunity to design clubs to meet the interests of our students, and offer our parents a free child care and enrichment program – we are extremely excited.
Our aftercare for grades Pre-K to grade 2 will continue to run for $4 an hour and we are working to create different activities to keep them engaged as well.
I am looking for a seventh and eighth grade Math Teacher. Mrs. Rosell has resigned due to family obligations. We have been blessed to have Mrs. Szeliga substituting but are looking for a new teacher. If you know anyone who may be interested please have them contact me asap as we have already begun interviewing.
We have a lot of new and exciting things happening at ACS and we are grateful and excited, yet we realize that with any new programs many questions arise. Do not hesitate to text or call to discuss any feedback or questions. If we don’t know we can’t fix it.
