3 core areas of ASLP
- Homework Assistance- Full hour of homework support
- Enrichment(Clubs)-Daily Activities that promote social and emotional skill development
- Mindful Mondays- Time dedicated at the beginning of the week to set positive weekly goals and start the week with calmness and positivity
- Recreation-structured time for students that promotes healthy lifestyle, teamwork and leadership.
A typical day at FSK starts off with the students meeting with their Program Leaders, who will then take them to have supper and/or recess. During supper, our students will be able to receive a healthy meal together with their class. Following supper the remaining part of our schedule includes Homework Assistance, Club Hour and Recreation. During Homework time, Program Leaders assist the students on their homework and are able to answer any questions they may have on a topic covered. Another important part of our program is our Club Hour where the Program Leaders lead fun and engaging activities for the students. In order to promote youth voice at FSK, our students have the opportunity to choose their top 3 clubs that they wish to participate in. There is Recreation time scheduled Monday through Thursday which provides students with an opportunity to participate in structured activities that promote a healthy lifestyle, teamwork, and leadership. Every Friday, we hold assemblies for our students to build community through games and challenges.
Monday through Thursday all of our students get the opportunity to be in a club that is led by our Program Leaders. Some of our clubs include: Sports Club, Science Club, Hip Hop Dance Club, Cooking Club, and Art Club. In addition to those activities run by our Program Leaders we also have clubs run by FSK parents or outside contractors such as Chess, An Eye For Art, Judo, Marine Biology, Girl Scouts and the Good News Club. If you would like to have your child learn another language, FSK also has two existing language programs that are held during afterschool; Mandarin and Spanish.
During the school year our afterschool program holds various events for our students and families to attend. In the fall we hold our annual Halloween Carnival and our ASLP Family Potluck. During our ASLP potluck we hope to bring the after school community together by sharing food and stories from various cultures. During the second half of the semester, we will also be having events such as our “Warriors Viewing Party”, where families and children can watch the game and participate in halftime activities.
