21st Century Programs
The Carson City School District and Boys & Girls Clubs of Western Nevada are partners in a unique, grant-funded after-school program at three schools in the district, Bordewich-Bray Elementary, Empire Elementary, and Mark Twain Elementary.
Students from these schools are invited to participate in the 21st Century afterschool programs based on test scores, grades and recommendations by teachers. A member of one of these programs will receive help with their academics like reading, math and writing as well as take part in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) curriculum, Civics education, and drug and alcohol prevention classes.
The academic portion takes place at each of the schools from 3:15-4:45 PM. During this time, students receive a snack, participate in skill building with their teachers and get help on their homework.
At 4:45, students can ride a bus from each of the schools to Boys & Girls Clubs of Western Nevada for enrichment, including arts, sports, technology and games. This partnership allows for students to reach their full potential academically and socially while still providing a safe environment for them.
If you have questions about any of the after-school programs, please contact Stephanie King at 224-5594.
