Dear Parent/Guardian,

Your child is being invited to the afterschool program at the Deer Isle-Stonington Schools for the 2018-2019 school year.  We are asking you to read about the program below and consider if it is right for you and your child.  Please return the attached enrollment form to your child’s school.   

The Afterschool Program will begin on October 1,The program provides academic support to students through tutoring; we will offer in addition, enrichment and recreational opportunities to engage students in a number of different ways.  Enrichment program offerings will include topics in art, music, multiculturalism, health and nutrition, as well as physical education. Calendars of activities will be available on the school website, our Facebook page, and posted throughout the schools.

We hope that you will take advantage of this wonderful opportunity to provide high quality academic support and fun enrichment opportunities to your child.

Here are additional details as well as some program guidelines:

The Afterschool Program will serve students entering grades three through twelve.

The focus of the program is on academic support and student achievement.  Our goal is to provide a continuation of classroom learning through creative and physical enrichment activities. In addition, our hope is to involve the community in ways in which their talents and support can enhance the scope of the program.

Students will be bused home at 4:30pm by Browns Bussing transportation department.

A healthy snack and drink will be served each day.

The Afterschool Program will operate Monday thru Thursday with the exception of holidays and vacation days.

Students are encouraged to attend the program on a regular basis in order to receive the most academic benefit.  Ideally, students should attend the program all four days; however students with other obligations may adjust their attendance as needed.

Parents are encouraged to attend Adult Education classes offered during after school hours. There will be a number of family activities and classes throughout the school year as well.

Please do not hesitate to contact me by phone or e-mail with any questions you may have regarding the program or the enrollment process. The after school staff and I are looking forward to working with you and your child to provide a supportive and enriching after school experience.
