Community Partnership

We know that it takes the effort of the entire community to provide the educational resources students need to succeed. We have partnered with the YMCA to provide after-school care to our students through Y-ASES. 

About the Program

The YMCA provides a quality program to enhance your child's learning in school and enrich their knowledge, with direct results to their schoolwork. The program is designed to offer academic support in the areas of literacy and math especially. All Y-ASES staff work closely with your child's teacher to assure homework is getting completed and the child is progressing at school. In addition, the program includes a health and fitness component focusing on cooperative group games and cardiovascular health as well as nutrition and healthy lifestyles.

The program operates daily from school dismissal until 6:00pm and children are expected to attend 5 days a week. The cost for Y-ASES is $30 per month, per child for elementary schools, but is no cost for intermediate sites.
