After School Charger Club Program

Ansonia Public Schools is concluding the third year of the Charger Club after school program, which is funded by a State Department of Education 21st Century Community Learning Center Grant. Students are enrolled on an invitation basis, and waiting lists are maintained once all slots are full. The final day of the program is Thursday, May 24, 2018, while the year end field trip for students who met the field trip contest requirements is Friday, May 25, 2018.

The after school program serves 100 students in Grades 5-8 and operates Monday-Friday for 150 days. Students invited to the program receive homework assistance in their schools three days each week; attend the Boys & Girls Club five days each week for fitness and other enrichment activities; and participate in hands-on science classes once a week at the Ansonia Nature & Recreation Center. Additional programs involving parents and/or Charger club families are being held in conjunction with Valley Regional Adult Education, Parent Child Resource Center, and Junior Achievement of Western Connecticut.

A new logo, created by AMS student Leandra Tuttle, was announced on Dec. 14, 2016 and appears at the top of the page.

Evening programs are held in conjunction with our partnering agencies. A monthly workshop series will begin in December and conclude in April, in partnership with the Parent Child Resource Center. Here are links to handouts created by the Anti-Defamation League, which were provided at the first workshop in December 2016: 10 Ways to Respond to Bullying, Taking a Stand, Bullying Prevention and Intervention Tips for Families, and What to Do if your Child Exhibits Bullying Behavior

We kicked off a new Facebook page to communicate regularly with parents and the community. Please check it for regular updates. We have everyone has a great 2017-18 year!
