After school program

Program name Alamo Elementary School - Richmond District After School Collaborative
About the program RDASC's mission is to improve the quality of life in its community by providing youth and their families with affordable afterschool environments that are safe, fun, art enriching, academically enhancing and culturally relevant. Students are expected to attend the Richmond District Afterschool Collaborative program at Alamo Elementary Monday through Friday from 2:40pm-5:45pm. It is important to note that if your child is absent from the program for 5 days in one month, he or she may be asked to leave the program. A typical week includes free and homework time, art, recreation, community building and Friday field trips. Alamo accepts a limited amount of K- 5th Grade students. Kindergarten students are admitted on a three week trial period to determine if they are able to adjust to the long day. Applications are due April 26, 2013. Although consideration is given to families who submit applications by the deadline, the program does not admit students on a first come, first served basis. The Richmond District Afterschool Collaborative works to balance gender and grade levels, and consider academic and financial need. They also work with the site administrator to identify and assist families who have particular needs. Complete information and application is available on their website.
