  • Two times a year the 3rd-5th graders in cooking classes have an Iron Chef Competition with judges! In the photo below, you can see the three May 2023 winners!

    The secret ingredient for this competition? BREAD! The students had to plan a menu, cook it, and serve it on the spot. There were three judges who decided the winners based on creativity, taste, and originality. The three winners were: GARRET BALLINGER, RYLEE BALLINGER, and DANI CUBIE. Congrats winners! 

Quality afterschool benefits everyone in the community!

    • Working parents are assured their children are safe afterschool and miss less work so employers benefit from a more productive workforce with less absenteeism
    • Communities are safer and have lower youth crime rates when children are engaged in quality afterschool programs.
    • Children who participate regularly in quality afterschool programs have better grades and attendance in school than their peers who did not.

    Afterschool programs further benefit children and families by providing a supportive and often lasting relationship with caring adults. For many children and families, the relationship with an afterschool program or provider endures from preschool through elementary school to middle school and beyond. An afterschool program leader is often able to bridge school and community relationships to create a patchwork of care and enrichment options to support a child's evolving interests and abilities over time.
