Participants in City Tree’s K-8 After School Program are divided into developmental and age-appropriategroups. Activity choices reflect our goals to meet each student’s developmental needs. The components of theprogram are:
Each day, children in grades 3-8 are given time to complete homework. Group Leaders are available to assist children with homework or projects that they may need to complete. If a child does not have homework, an educational activity or reading will be completed. Students are encouraged to have a book that they enjoy with them each day. Kindergarten -2nd grade children participate in activities designed to strengthen literacy as well as other learning games.
Children participate in many different enrichment activities that include, but are not limited to, music, dance, science, community service projects, literature, art, sports, team building, and community development.
Snacks are provided on a daily basis. If a child is particularly hungry or a very selective eater, parents are welcome to send a healthy snack with their child each.
Recreational activities are included on a daily basis. Students participate in a variety of sports and games. Other activities offered daily include board games, puzzles, blocks, Legos, and cooperative games. A wide range of activities are offered.
Each group visits the computer lab for about 30 minutes one time a week during the After School Program.
Themes are incorporated into the after-school portion of the day. These themes reinforce chapel and classroom lessons. Children are recognized for their participation and achievement in theme-based activities. Monthly special activities are chosen to reflect the important events and holidays related to the time of year.
A daily schedule is posted on the CTAS bulletin board located in the stairwell to the right of the office door. In addition, when schedule changes are necessary, they will be posted both on the bulletin board and office door.
Daphney Wadley is the Director of the City Tree After School Program. She oversees the staff, organization, and implementation of the program. The rest of the staff is comprised of 3-4 group leaders. These staff members tend to be college students or college graduates seeking a career in education. They often bring valuable previous experience with children to their positions at City Tree, and a desire to be actively involved with children on a daily basis.
