The Twilight Learning Center
(TLC) is an exciting new program being offered through Siuslaw Schools
and the Boys and Girls Club. Twilight is a
team of staff, parents, and children who are dedicated to providing
academic assistance, enrichment activities, and recreational
experiences, in safe and productive environments, for children in
grades 1-12. Federal funding is through a 21st Century Community
Learning Centers grant.
Twilight starts right after school in
the elementary, middle, and high schools and ends at 6:00 p.m., Monday
through Wednesday, and at 5:00 p.m. on Thursday, throughout the school
year. There will also be summer programs to be announced later.
Students will be given a USDA meal, academic tutoring, homework help, and the
opportunity to do fun activities. There will be school buses to
transport children home after the program.
The Boys and Girls Club of Western
Lane County will provide the enrichment activities for Twilight at each
school site. An example of enrichment activities might include but are
not limited to:
|* Painting and drawing ||* Music and Dance|
|* Nutritional education/cooking|| * Art|
|* Outside/gym play ||* Games and Sports|
|* Nature and science|| * Skits and Drama|
|* Theme Projects || * Special Events|
|* Guest Speakers||* Field Trips|
Academic tutoring will focus mostly on math and language
arts but students are welcome to bring any school work they need
assistance with. There will be certified teachers and educational
assistants working in each building to help students.
In the elementary school, Twilight will operate in conjunction with
Indian Education and Lynn Anderson, the Indian Education Project
Director, will serve as the elementary Site Coordinator, so students
can attend both programs.
Registration forms are available at your school.
