Our AM session is: 7:00am - 8:30am and we engage participants in early morning activities which includes recreation, group games, reading, homework help and even the latest movies.
Symbolic Art After school programming begins at the end of the school day. Symbolic Art staff picks up Lummis ES students at the bridge in the playground at Lummis. Our after school program is open to youth who want to get involved with Symbolic Art and its calendar of sports, recreation, and community service projects planned throughout the year. We encourage creative and artistic expression through music, dance, poetry etc., academic enrichment, positive social interaction, sports and recreation. We love to have fun and we enjoy creating meaningful experiences for our youth and the families they represent!
Our #1 priority during the first hour of the after school program is dedicated to completing homework assignments and/or activities related to improved academics. Symbolic Art participants are encouraged to engage in creative outlets such as arts and craft projects and our live radio broadcast - where participants can be a part of creating content and sharing with their peers.
We invite high-school students to volunteer their time to help Symbolic Art members complete homework assignments and to offer positive interactions. After the homework is done -- we encourage our participants to have fun, meet new friends and/or express themselves creatively.
**Note: We adopt a zero tolerance for any acts of bullying or disrespectful behavior of any kind
Symbolic Art is committed to serving the families within our community. No matter what adverse situations imposed upon us we are dedicated to offering a meaningful contribution to our youth by helping with homework assignments, reading or some other educational activity. Additionally, Symbolic Art participants can expect to engage in creative outlets to express unique talents and abilities. Interactive activities include sports & recreation, arts & craft projects and community service projects.
**Note: We require payment on a daily, weekly or monthly basis according to how often you plan to attend our after school activities program.
Enrollment fees are due prior to attending the Symbolic Art after school program
In addition to providing before and after school programming Symbolic Art staff members are approved mentors through CCSD's Stay in School Mentoring Project. We are available to help youth who might need extra help with academics, encouragement, creating a positive self-image, or whatever interaction that is helpful for inspiring youth to be more productive in their academic pursuits and improved involvement in individual areas of interest.
Symbolic Art staff loves to organize groups games, indoor and outdoor physical fitness related activities to keep participants engaged, having fun and learning. Our Symbolic Art FunPlay club is much more than recreational activities - we look forward to planning periodic excursions to hang out with our local supporters i.e. Chuck E. Cheese, LaserQuest, Skating and other activities considered fun, safe and age appropriate. Through our collaboration with NV Child Seekers youth can learn how to be safe and responsible while using the Internet. We are always looking for creative ways to help strengthen students' physical, mental and social health and well being.
All FunPlay activities are structured to build physical and mental confidence while providing a safe environment for youth to participate. Power, Reaction Time, Agility, Balance, Coordination and Speed are examples of skills developed during FunPlay activities.
