Right At School Enrichment Program
The nationally recognized after-school enrichment provider, Right at School, is coming to the Victoria Independent School District! Starting this fall, Right at School will assume responsibility for after-school care at Aloe, Chandler, Crain, DeLeon, Dudley, Mission Valley, O’Connor, Rowland, Schorlemmer, Shields, Smith, and Vickers Elementary Schools.
For those who wish to participate in the after-school program, the program will be available every day school is in session, from the time the school bell rings until 6:00 pm. Parents will be able to work with Right at School to create flexible monthly schedules to support families’ busy lives. Just create your own monthly schedule choosing 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5 days per week. Drop-in care is also an option. This allows parents to only pay for the days for which care is needed. Right at School will also be available during breaks, non-school days, and summer.
The shift to Right At School will provide families flexibility in enrollment options and a comprehensive enrichment curriculum to keep our students engaged while they participate. Students will have a healthy snack, engage in dynamic fitness activities, student-driven projects, team building, leadership development, and have the opportunity to complete homework. The program also features an enriched curriculum in the form of two-week units.
Examples of units include:
- Getting Down to Business, where students are introduced to money and commerce
- Icky Experiments, where students experiment with sticky substances to learn chemistry
- Variety Show, where students rehearse and perform individual talent acts
We encourage you to also visit Right At School’s website, www.rightatschool.com, for more information about their organization and dynamic curriculum. We look forward to enhancing the educational experience of our students and parents through this exciting partnership.
