Program adds media rooms to enhance learning opportunities
Bryan County Schools’ Community Education division is now registering students for its Before Care and Afterschool Program (ASP).
The Before School Program is offered for students enrolled in Richmond Hill Primary School, Richmond Hill Elementary School and George Washington Carver Elementary, from 7:00 a.m. to 8:10 a.m.
The Afterschool Program is available for Bryan County students in pre-kindergarten through eighth grade until 6:30 p.m. After school sites include McAllister Elementary, the Community Education Center (Richmond Hill district and RHMS) and Lanier Primary (North Bryan school district).
“Each year, approximately 800 students benefit from the enhanced learning opportunities provided by Bryan County Schools’ Before and After School Program,” said Mark Griffin, system coordinator of Community Education. “Our goal is to provide a quality program which complements the regular school curriculum while offering students activities that will stimulate new interests and creativity.”
In order to further enhance the learning opportunities provided during after school hours, the program recently added I Pads that include STEM and other educational applications.
In addition to new learning opportunities with I Pad technology, ASP students also participate in arts and crafts activities where they are encouraged to exercise creative skills, and enjoy indoor games and outside play time. They also have an opportunity to complete homework assignments or practice writing and reading skills.
Many ASP students also take advantage of enhanced learning opportunities through Bryan County Schools’ Community Education program, which offers extracurricular classes such as art, dance, martial arts, gymnastics, cooking, music and more.
