Dear Parent / Guardian,
We are excited to announce that this year we are participating in the Lottery for Education Afterschool Programs (LEAPs). The overall goal of the LEAPs program is to provide Tennessee students with academic enrichment opportunities and homework help.
The LEAPs program will begin September 5th and run through May 18th. We will have the LEAPs program every morning from 7 am to 8 am at both buildings. On Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday afternoons, we have the LEAPs program at both buildings from 3 pm to 5:15 pm.
It is extremely important for your child to attend each day and for the entire session due to grant funding. This will extend your child’s learning experience in the classroom and enhance their overall success. If your child’s attendance is not consistent, he/she may not be able to participate and another student will be given the opportunity to benefit from these services. Each day your child will be provided academic assistance involving one-on-one opportunities, academic vocabulary, and technology. They will be given a light meal and provided with various enrichment activities. Your child should be picked up each day no later than 5:20. If your child is picked up late three times, they risk losing the opportunity to participate in this program. Please complete and return the attached Student Enrollment Form. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Melissa Edwards or Debbi Cole.
