After Summer Comes After School
August 26, 2013 | Chicago, IL
Erie’s After School Program has had an awesome summer so far! We’ve had smiling children, festivals, fieldtrips, and to top it off, we did a lot of learning along the way. We visited several water parks, saw the Broadway in Chicago play “Cat in the Hat,” and took our yearly camping trip to Butternut Springs in Valparaiso, Indiana, which brought 102 children, parents and other family members together. According to the children, this year’s trip “was one of the best camping trips ever!”
As summer winds down, the excitement for the new school year begins! And, School-Age enrollment is increasing at Erie. This year we are fortunate to have several preschoolers join the program. Many of the them have siblings in the program, so they are extremely excited to be a part of the “big kids.”
This excitement continues through the generosity of our supporters who have provided several book bags for some of our children (and families) in need.
We hope you can join us to meet these students, and many others, at Erie House’s After School Fall Kick Off on September 6, 2013 at 6:00 p.m. at 1347 W. Erie Street. Staff will be on hand to register your child, if you are interested in them attending the program for the fall. The event is geared for parents to learn more about the program and services that are provided at Erie Neighborhood House.
