After School Charger Club Program

Ansonia Public Schools has kicked off the second year the Charger Club after school program, which is funded by a State Department of Education 21st Century Community Learning Center Grant.

The after school program for students in Grades 6-8 began on Monday, Sept. 26, 2016 and will be held every day of school through May 12, 2017. 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.

A monthly workshop series for parents/guardians began in December 2016 and will continue through April 2017. Here are links to handouts created by the Anti-Defamation League, which were provided at the first workshop: 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

Newsletters will be published throughout the year and will be posted here, as well as copies provided to parents and guardians. A special edition, dated Dec. 23, 2016, features information about the new club logo and the first field trip on Dec. 16.

For the parents and guardians of the 100 students enrolled in the program, we hope your children have a great year!
