Auburn Public Schools Awarded $105,000 Grant for After School Program at Calvert Elementary
Auburn Public Schools (APS) has been conferred a $105,000 Community Learning Center grant.
Suzanne Whisler, director of school improvement and curriculum, stated the funding supports the Discovery Opportunity Growth and Service (DOGS) Academy. It is a supervised after school program at Calvert Elementary School.
During the school year, the Academy is from 3:15 to 6:15 p.m. Mondays through Fridays. In the summer, it operates 45 days from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. weekdays. Whisler said the academy hopes to serve 75 to 100 students. “It is critical to help provide these services to families attending Auburn Public Schools. It keeps students engaged in meaningful activities after school,” she noted. Those include a physical activity, homework help, Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics enrichment, and college and career readiness information. A snack is served. The students will be taking field trips, participating in social emotional skills development while being notified on substance abuse prevention, Whisler said.
