New ACPS Partnership with Kids Club

In the fall, many of our 1st-3rd grade students were referred by their local school for mandatory after-school remediation.  The school administration, however, in recognizing the success and importance of our community-based after-school program, decided not to pull the students from Kids Club.  Instead, the school decided to send several of their teachers to our site three days a week!  Since November, these teachers have been coming to Kids Club and leading Guided Reading groups, as well as a movement based station (called Movement Lab) and a music based literacy station.  The children have been responding very well to the new structure and they especially enjoy the Movement Lab and Music stations.  We are thankful for God’s favor, as well as this wonderful opportunity to partner more closely with the school.
