AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAM

TRSU has been providing high quality after school programming (ASP) for over 15 years. After school programs support many critical needs for both families and the community at each of the 4 elementary schools in the Supervisory Union. ASP also plays an important role in meeting TRSU's equity objectives; to bring greater educational opportunities to all students. ASP is a collaboration between district administration, building principals, school staff, and, of course, the families we serve.
The TRSU After School programs now serve children in grades K-6 at Ludlow Elementary, Mount Holly School, Cavendish Town Elementary School, and Chester-Andover Elementary School, both during the school year and during the summer. More than 300 students access our programs annually.
The mission of the TRSU After School program is to provide it’s students and their families with expanded opportunity for learning and recreation in collaboration with schools, recreation departments, local governments, community organizations and families.
After school programs are more than just a safe place for children to stay, participants receive academic support, engage in fun recreational activities. We also engage activities that support the social and emotional skills that build character, develop resiliency, compassion, and create community.
The ASP provides academic support to students through homework clubs, tutoring, and math support groups. In most cases licensed classroom teachers . Data shows that students participating in after school programs maintain or improve grades, and when participating in summer camp, reduce summer learning loss.
Healthy snacks are offered daily. Programs are structured to support social and emotion learning. Enrichment activities are also an important part of the program day. These might include STEM projects, extended library hours, music lessons, comic book design, video production, ZUMBA classes, CPR certification, archery, photography and so much more..
Quality youth programming is equally important during the summer. TRSU offers a summer day camp, Go WILD (Wilderness Inspired Learning Daily) at West Hill in Ludlow. Go WILD campers participate in activities that allow them to explore and appreciate the beauty of Vermont, build new friendships, try out exciting camp activities, and get connected to the community through our many partnerships.
We look forward to supporting your youth, and our community. Thank you for allowing us to be a part of and support to your child's growing up.
