Program name Argonne Elementary Afterschool Program
About the program The Argonne Afterschool Program aims to give students in grades K-3 a developmentally appropriate program that reinforces what they are learning during the school day, while offering opportunities for new experiences. A typical day at this afterschool program includes homework help, science, health and fitness activities, recreational or art activities, character building, and a nutritious snack. To encourage a healthy lifestyle, the afternoon snack includes a minimum of two food groups. Homework help lasts up to 1 hour per day (depending on each child’s age), and is given in small groups. Kids are also given the chance to customize their experience with Student Designed Clubs on Fridays.Summer camps are offered through Richmond District Neighborhood Center.

Students are expected to attend the Richmond District Afterschool Collaborative program at Argonne Monday through Friday from 2:40pm-5:45pm.

A typical week includes free and homework time, art, recreation, community building and Friday field trips. Applications for the 2013-14 program are due April 26, 2013, although the program does not admit students on a first come, first served basis.

About the program Each program has an academic, enrichment and physical activity component. The programs are based on a youth development model and include project based learning activities. The summer programs are operated by community based organizations that are contracted by SFUSD to provide the services based on grants to the school from California Department of Education. Each organization has a site specific enrollment process. Priority enrollment goes to the students from the school site. Students from other SFUSD schools are eligible to apply though in many of the elementary schools there is more demand than available slots. Funding changes year to year and program offerings change.
