Schools, community members and organizations partnering together to ensure opportunities for life-long learning by providing more educational, recreational and enrichment possibilities for students.
HALF-Time is an intervention program for elementary school students who have been selected based on academic need. Recommendations come directly from the principal and teachers at the school. Following the admission of targeted students, additional students are added to the program on a first-come, first served basis. The program offers an hour of homework assistance with trained staff, an hour of computer based reading and math intervention/tutorial, a nutritional snack, and an hour of indoor and outdoor activities that are both fun and educational. Some activities offered include: arts & crafts; recreation such as jump rope, hula-hoops, and dance; and a cultural awareness program designed to introduce children to different cultures across the United States and around the world.
PRIME-Time students receive homework assistance from trained staff. PRIME-time provides students with a nutritional snack; after which, students can choose from a multitude of enrichment and recreational activities that will be offered throughout the week. Students are welcomed to participate in activities such as organized sports (like soccer, football, and basketball), drawing, painting, dance, music, skateboarding, and many more. Any middle school student currently enrolled can sign up and participate in PRIME-Time after school programs, as space allows.
