After School Program
Our After School Program operates every school day during the school year at Diamond Valley Elementary School and is open for all students. It runs from the moment school lets out until 6:00 PM each day. The program has four components, 1) Academic, 2) Recreation, 3) Nutrition, and 4) Academic Enrichment. Students in our competitive sports program, although they will be with their coach during training, must also be enrolled in the After School Program. After their training, our athletes will join the other after school students. We also are very fortunate to be able to provide transportation for our students. The after school bus leaves Diamond Valley at 5:00 PM and stops at all regular bus stops. Students who stay until 6:00 PM need to be picked up by their parents/guardians.We have again restructured our program to include a teacher coordinator who will oversee all operations and instruction for our students after school! Aubrey Trevett, a teacher from San Francisco, is moving to Alpine County to join our Diamond Valley teaching staff for this new position! We are also pleased Ms. Patty DeMaio, a veteran of our After School Program, is rejoining the program to be Ms. Trevett’s teacher’s aide!
The Academic Component consists of a number of the following: Computer Assisted Instruction, homework time and assistance as needed, and general tutoring. The recreation component consists of structured recreation that includes outdoor and indoor games and exercises. The nutrition component consists of a nutritious snack. Finally, the Academic Enrichment component consists of activities such as chess and other board games, crafts, music, project based learning, and other enriching activities.
The After School Program is funded through the California Department of Education’s (CDE’s) After School Education and Safety (ASES) grant. We are fortunate this year to have received another after school grant from the CDE for after school program transportation. Ms. Cheri Warrell, our grant administrator was instrumental in acquiring this grant for us. The grant will cover the costs of additional transportation. Our after school staff will be inquiring about parents’ desires for additional transportation at 6:00 PM.
