AFTER SCHOOL KICKOFF: Monday, August 27th

August 15, 2018
Dear Parents,
Rio del Mar Elementary School's After School Program will begin on Monday, August 27th,  and run through 
the middle of May, 2018. Our program will run from 2:05 – 4:30 p.m. on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays. 
On Wednesdays the program will run until 2:10 p.m. The primary purpose of this program is to help students with 
homework and provide academic support/interventions for students that are falling behind grade level standards 
and who may struggle with the common core standards being taught at their grade level.
The program will continue to consist of an hour of tutorial/homework support for students in 2nd through 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 fail to be honest in this regard, they 
will lose fun enrichment class opportunities for two weeks. Enrichment Classes that you can sign up this 
Fall are: Four Little Pigs of Pig's Hollow, Rock Band, Guitar and Piano. To sign up for any of these classes, 
simply go to the after school website, click link of class you want to join on right, print, sign and return the form with 
your donation. Rio’s After School is an open enrollment program and this means that your child may come any day 
we are in session.
*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. 
If you have questions about bus transportation problem/concern, please call: 728-6324
There is no BUS ON WEDNESDAYS so pick up on time please.
**Please remember to pick up your child promptly each day at 4:25 p.m. and 2:10 on WEDNESDAYS  
After three late pick-ups, your child will be required to take the free after school bus home. 
If this occurs on Wednesdays, they will not be able to attend that day.
*There will be no after school program on Fridays, or during Parent/Teacher Conferences in November 8th-12th 
Snacks and drinks will be provided each day. All-calls and e-mails will be made to keep parents updated for enrichment 
classes coming soon.
*When school begins, the suggested donation is $300 for the school year to fund the Rio’s After School Program. 
This one-time donation for the school year pays for a Math Specialst,, staff, supplies, curriculum, books, equipment, 
music, prizes and much more. This amount is a small sum compared to the hundreds of dollars you would pay at 
other programs each month and without it, after school will lose key parts of the program.  
Checks are preferred and they should be made out to the RDM Parent Alliance.
