Ella Lewis After School Program

Welcome to the Ella Lewis 

After School Program!

Dear Friends and Family,

We would like to take the opportunity to welcome back returning families and invite all our new families at ELS to join us for another exciting year at After School! Please read below to familiarize yourself with the program for the 2023-2024 school year. 

The After School Program at Ella Lewis will begin on Monday, October 2nd and will run Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday until 5:00 PM. The bus will run on Tuesday and Thursday. Students who attend Mondays and Wednesdays will need to be picked up by 5:00 PM. 

Students will begin the afternoon with a snack and recess. From 3:30- 4:15, students will gather for a brief meeting, read aloud and an opportunity to complete homework or unfinished work from the school day. From 4:15 to 5:00, students will participate in a themed activity for the day. There will also be tutoring services available to students during this time. If you are interested in tutoring for your child(ren), please make a note on the enrollment form. .

In order to help offset the cost of materials and supplies, we are asking for a once-yearly enrollment fee for students who wish to attend the After School Program. This fee will be based on free/reduced lunch status with a multi-student discount for families as follows:                           

  • Full paid lunch: $20 per child/ $30 per family 
  • Reduced lunch: $15 per child/ $20 per family 
  • Free lunch: $10 per child/ $15 per family 

Scholarships are available to families unable to pay the enrollment fee, simply check the box on the enrollment form. NO STUDENT WILL BE TURNED AWAY DUE TO THE INABILITY TO PAY. 

Please read through the attached Family Handbook. If you think this program is right for your child, please complete the enrollment form and return it to his/her teacher. Students will need to have completed enrollment forms BEFORE they can begin staying for the After School Program. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at [email protected] or 546-2430.

See you soon, 

Mrs. Green
