Parents, we welcome you to Beyond the Bell afterschool. We would love to have you volunteer in our program. We will start recruiting volunteers in a couple of weeks. The program start up takes a lot of extra time and effort and we appreciate your understanding and support.
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
Beyond the Bell
Dora Erickson was awarded a 21st Century Community Learning Center Grant which allows us to offer a free after school program, to 130 students. We will provide a variety of tutoring and enrichment opportunities. The program is segmented into five sessions during the school year. During each session, new enrichment classes will be offered, while some such as choir will be offered all year. In addition, the program offers academic supports in reading and math to support student's success in the regular school day. During each session, we will have a field trip and parent activity.
Be sure to sign up for this great opportunity!
