STAR Academy is joining with the National AfterSchool Association to celebrate the professionals that are at the heart of afterschool programs during "Afterschool Professionals Appreciation Week" April 23-27, 2018.
We are joining the effort because we believe Afterschool professionals make a difference in the lives of young people. We encourage you to join us in thanking the afterschool professionals in your life. Here are some ideas on how you can show your appreciation:
• Declare on social media: "I believe Afterschool professionals make a difference in the lives of young people. #heartofafterschool" • Give a hand-written card from you and/or your child to the afterschool professional in your life. • Send an email to an afterschool professional's supervisor describing why that person is appreciated. • Make treats for the staff at your afterschool program.For more resources and information check out www.heartofafterschool.com. ...

Dear Parent(s): The PLACE Program (Pasco Learning and Activity Centers of Enrichment) is the District School Board of Pasco County’s before and after school enrichment program which is designed to provide an active and enriching environment for children who must arrive at school early, stay late, and/or require supervised activities during school holidays. Presently, PLACE is limited to elementary age children in kindergarten through grade five.
The PLACE program strives to meet the needs of the families and schools in our community. In order to do this, we are requesting your input regarding the possibility of expanding our services to the following two schools: Charles S. Rushe Middle School River Ridge Middle School
The program may include, but is not limited to life skills, STEAM activities, homework assistance, special interest clubs and recreational activities. The estimated cost of a middle school program would include a $25.00 annual registration fee and a weekly tuition fee of no less than $50 per student. The final cost has yet to be determined, as the program must be totally fee supported. In order to open a program, there must be sufficient enrollment in order for the program to be financially sustainable.
