"BEACON is a fantastic program. As a family with two full-time working parents, our son gets out of school at 3:15pm which is not conductive to our work schedule. BEACON helps fill that time. It is a great program with a wide variety of things to do. The kids are not just sitting, watching t.v. but instead learn, play and get to be active: Spanish Club, Golf, and the Science Clubs- there is a lot of variety and it is well-matched for active children. We wish you had a summer program! Our son loves BEACON and will be back again next fall." - Parent
When Parents and Afterschool Connect, Kids Win Big!
Afterschool family nights are a great way to bring families together at school for a night of fun activities that everyone can enjoy! These are customized turnkey programs designed to bring parents and students together and encourage family involvement in afterschool. Programs include: Family Nights, parent workshops, Lights On! Afterschool and specialized clubs that encourage parent involvement
During the 2015-16 School Year BEACON has sought family input on the types of family nights and parent workshops we can provide to bring people together.
This year we have had or will have:
Lights On! Afterschool
Taxes & Swim Night
Cyber Safety Workshop
Family Ceramics Night
Annual End-of-Year Family Picnic
At the Grand County Middle School site we have hosted a Teen Iron Chef club this year where students learned about cooking each portion of a meal and discover taste, seasoning techniques, and preparation. This club engaged families by encouraging parents to learn how to cook with their teens, and featured some parent judges for the final cook off!
BEACON loves to hear from families about what kinds of engaging opportunities we can provide- so please get in touch with your ideas! Email firstname.lastname@example.org.
