An after-school program offering additional interest-based education has recently started up after a grant was won to fund the effort. The program currently offers eight different clubs, as well as funding tutoring. Clubs offer meetings run Monday through Friday, excluding Wednesdays, from 2:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. with tutoring offered on Tuesdays and Thursdays in the cafeteria.

The clubs offered are Dance Club, Best Buddies Club, Cinematography Crew, Fitness Club, Tech Club, French Corps, Grizzly Ink- Poetry and Creative Writing, and UpROAR Grizzly Spirt Club. These groups allow students to pursue interests or activities that may not be available during the school day as well as providing additional support, collaboration or study for anyone who wants to spend more time working these areas.

Here is a description of what the after-school clubs offer:

Dance: instruction on a variety of dance forms and techniques.

Fitness: take part in health-based education and activities.

Tech: receive one-on-one tutorials in hardware and software.

French Corps: gain French language and cultural training.

Poetry & Creative Writing: create and share personal compositions.

UpRoar Spirit: plan ways of creating a more involved community on-campus.

Students interested in joining one or more of the after-school program groups can get an enrollment packet from Alexandra Medina, the After-School Program Site Lead, in the career center any time after 1:30 p.m.

According to Alexandra Medina the after-school program can benefit students in many ways. She states, “It can help in academic performance, reduce risky behaviors, promote physical health, and provide a safe, structured environment for students to be at during after school hours.”

    Sounds like a good program, and the writer was able to hit the main keys of the program, which can pull readers into signing up.

    I think after-school programs are a great idea, but if some of the students don’t really pay attention to thing like this, the school has to make sure they know the benefits and make sure it’s fun.
