ACES Activities

AfterSchool KidzLit - Because of the importance of reading skills in elementary education, ACES uses the AfterSchool KidzLit reading enrichment program.  Group leaders read books aloud and facilitate activities such as discussions, games, drama, art, music or writing that help students extend their thinking about the ideas in the stories.

CATCH Kids Club - ACES uses the CATCH Kids Club kit and other fun physical fitness activities to provide 30 minutes a day of physical activity at a moderate to vigorous intensity level.

ACES Environment - The design of the ACES area and resources meets the developmental needs and interests of school-age children.  Activities include arts and crafts, music, movement, blocks and construction, drama, language/reading, math/reasoning, science/nature and cultural awareness.

  ACES Field Trips - On some ACES All-Days, students can enjoy trips to local museums, historical sites, theatres, bowling lanes and activity centers.  There will be an additional fee of $8 per student on All-Days to cover costs of supplies, transportation, and field trip admissions.
