After School-STEAM Academy
Maren Chewning- Maren@sccsc.org
The mission of our expanded learning program is to provide innovative, youth-driven, high quality out-of-school-time opportunities that include building school-community partnerships, engaging families to participate in their children’s learning, and learning through project-based enrichment that complements the school day.
STEAM Academy begins directly after school dismissal. Program staff pick students up from their classrooms and walk them to their assigned STEAM classrooms.
During our before and after school programs, Team Leads (before and after school instructors) develop strong and enriching lessons based upon our agencies initiatives; STEAM, Social and Emotional learning, Social skills, Health and Wellness, and, Literacy. Lessons are presented to students through project based learning. It is our mission to provide a fun, safe learning environment that fosters independent thinking skills as well as collaborative learning.
Our program utilizes 4 classrooms, the Library, Playground, Cafeteria and indoor/outdoor stage. Activities include the Arts, Improv, Dance, Drama, Science and Sports.
Snack is provided in the afternoon. EK/Kinder students have snack at 2:30PM while 1st-6th grade students have snack at 3:15PM.
