RISE After-school Program


There is no place to go but UP with RISE!

RISE ON-LINE APPLICATION
It's 4 o'clock. Do you know where your children are?
I hope you can answer “RISE!” The majority of our parents work and the security of knowing their children are in the RISE program provides peace of mind and allows them to better focus their attention at work. It is a win-win situation for everyone involved.

It's 5 o'clock. Do you know where your children are?

The answer should be extremely important to all parents. Is your child going home from school to spend time watching television and playing video games rather than doing his/her homework? Is he/she bullying or being bullied while playing outside unsupervised? Has your child had a healthy after school snack? If your child is in RISE, the answers are easy. Your child is being supervised while going outside to “just play” with other children in the safe environment of the school playground. Your child has also had a nutritious snack and is now making creative crafts, participating in organized recreational activities, and doing his or her homework . Moreover, your child is increasing his or her changes of school success:

“The link between after-school program participation increased achievements among youth is increasingly evident as new research emerges. After-School Programs: Keeping Children Safe and Smart, a joint report from the U.S. Department of Education and U.S. Department of Justice, shows that students in after-school programs exhibit fewer behavioral problems, better ability to handle conflicts and improved self-confidence.”

Other studies further conclude that children in after-school programs have improved academic performance, higher graduation rates, better school attendance and conduct.

RISE is now a fee-based program offered after the instructional school day. The fee to attend RISE is $90 for 9 weeks. Fees must be prepaid for student participation in the program. Your child will not be enrolled for the 2017-2018 until payment is made in the form of a credit card, check or money order payable to NSCISD RISE.

RISE currently is taking applications for students in grades 1-5. The program employs energetic and caring staff members, many of whom are our own high school students who enjoy this opportunity for an after school job. RISE also has 2 outstanding and patient bus drivers that transport our children home everyday. RISE is directed by Ms. Tassos, who lovingly and enthusiastically oversees the entire program.

At 4 o’clock or 5 o’clock, do you know where your children are?

The only place to go is UP with RISE.
