Back on Track
This program is a three-pronged approach to get our students back on track and performing at grade level. When we opened our doors as full-day Learning and Enrichment Centers last August, we soon realized many of the students were struggling and in need of an extra layer of educational assistance. Our staff recognized early that our kids needed additional time with their school work. Clubs will be open on Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. -1:00 p.m. for students in first through fifth grade. Super Saturdays will offer tutoring in Math and ELA, fun educational projects in Social Sciences, sports clinics, and organized games. Students along their Saturday journey receive awards and incentives based on participation. After getting eight punches on their Saturday ticket, the student then qualifies to be part of a day at Camp Whittier.
Other components of the Back on Track program include Summer Spectacular that is a nine-week summer camp and Power Hour, an after-school tutoring program for grades K-12. All three programs will have an educational component that will improve literacy and math skills to get our kids back on track in their educational journey.
Education and Career Development provides opportunities for career exploration, educational enhancement and tutoring.
