Beyond the Bell Program

Dora Erickson was awarded a five year 21st Century Community Learning Center Grant which allows us to offer a free after school program for up to 130 students. We will provide a variety of tutoring and enrichment opportunities. The program offers academic supports every day for every student enrolled. Everyone also receives science, art, physical education classes, and access to field trips. Students are offered the opportunity to select enrichment classes which will change periodically throughout the year. We welcome parent participation and offer family activities almost monthly.

This is our second year of operation. We are working hard to keep the great things we started last year while making important improvements. Please contact the director Mrs. Fullmer if you have questions. (208-516-0168)

The parent/student handbook has important information for you. If your child is enrolled you need to be familiar with the rules and policies particularly for student pick-up. We look forward to getting to know you and your children throughout the year. Español
