After School Program Starts: Monday, August 27th

Dear Parents,
Rio del Mar Elementary School's After School Program will begin on Monday, August 27th. Our program will run from 2:10 – 4:25 p.m. on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays. On Restructured-Day Wednesdays the program will run until 2:05 p.m. As in the past, the primary purpose of this program is to help students with homework and provide academic support and interventions for students that are falling behind grade level standards and who may struggle with the CST Testing.

The program will continue to consist of an hour of tutorial/homework support for students who are in 2nd - 6th grades. If your child completes all of their homework they will participate in an hour of enrichment activities to support student learning. Students are to be honest regarding finishing their homework. If they are not, they will lose fun enrichment class opportunities for two weeks. Enrichment activities will consist of: Sports Leagues, Rock Bands, Guitar, Bass, Computers, Piano, Chess, Ceramics, Arts and Crafts, Cartooning, African Drumming, Games and possibly Choir. Rio’s After School is an open enrollment program and this means that your child may come any day we are in session, or enroll throughout the year.

*For those students who take the bus: there will be a free after school bus that will pick up the students at 4:25 p.m.on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays. There will be no bus provided on our Restructured Wednesdays (short days). As a result, students will need to be picked up on Wednesdays at 2:05pm. If you have a transportation problem/concern please call: 728-6324.

**Please remember to pick up your child promptly each day at 4:25 p.m. After three warnings for getting picked up late, your child will be required to take the free after school bus home.

*There will be no after school program on Fridays or during Parent/Teacher Conferences in October. Snacks and drinks will be provided each day. Keep an eye out for all-calls at home for new classes and holiday weeks because there will be days that we will not be in session throughout the year.

*When school begins, please send a check for $250 for each child to attend Rio’s After School Program. This fee helps pay staff, a Reading Specialist, Math Specialist, supplies, curriculum, books, equipment, prizes and much more. Scholarships are available for students in need. This one time fee is a small sum compared to the hundreds of dollars you would pay at other programs each month. Checks are preferred and they should be made out to the RDM Parent Alliance. The district cut each Aptos School's after school program by $10,000.

Have a great school year,
