Typical Day

Our daily schedule includes three components: Snack/Supper and Recess, Tribe Time (Community Building and Homework Assistance), and Project-Based Clubs. At the start of the After School Learning Program, participants arrive at the Cafeteria for Sign-In and Snack. A warm supper is provided by Student Nutrition Services at no cost. Daily Announcements begin at 3:50p and at 4:00p, students head over to their Tribe classes. During the first hour of ASLP, students will engage in community building activities and get started on their homework. At 5:00-6:00p, participants will go to Project Club of their choosing. The Project Clubs run in 12-week sessions for 3 rotation cycles, where we will host a Beacon Fest Celebration! We will end each day with a Community Time, where youths can participate in drop-in activities in the Computer Lab, Cafeteria, and Yard.
