a program of Temple Menorah and Tuvia School
In our after-school program, we are continuing to build and support a community of learners with homework help, enrichment activities, as well as provide full-day support for working families when schools are closed.
With low teacher:student ratios, we foster students’ increasing personal independence by developing a positive self-concept of who they are as individuals, as well as what their role is in their family and their community.
Our trained educators support students with their homework We have a schedule that accommodates both academic learning and an emergent curriculum that builds on their unique strengths, while simultaneously introducing them to new ways of thinking and learning, in order to expand their world, providing a strong foundation for their future learning experiences. We provide opportunities for students to enrich their skills in reading, writing, math, speaking, listening, critical thinking, Judaic studies, science, social studies, art, music, physical education, and gross and fine motor development. Program students have regular access to Wilderness Park across the street for outdoor educational experiences.
As with all our programs, we support the developmental and individual needs of all children as they grow and progress emotionally, cognitively, academically, socially, physically, and spiritually. Here at Tuvia, we kindle a life-long love of learning, which is key to all future academic and personal success.
Faculty and Ratio
The Afterschool faculty will be comprised of individuals with a background in education. Staff assist with homework and design activities to support skills in physical education, art, science, engineering, etc.
Our educators communicate with families regarding homework. Our goal would be to have students finish their assignments while in our program. However, parents should anticipate that there will be assignments that require parent participation. Our staff will communicate through our App, Playground, regularly regarding participation, assignments, concerns, and accomplishments. Parents are also able to communicate with our staff through Playground from their phone.
At this time our ratio will be 14 students per staff members with an assistant teacher supporting throughout the day.
A typical schedule would be as follows:
Before School (7:30am-8:50am)
Morning check in, Snack, Activities (indoor/outdoor), and drop off at Alta Vista (or arrange a ride to campus)
First hour – Snack, Homework help, book club, and activities for students done with homework.
Second & Third hours – Enrichment activities (painting, ceramics, engineering, creative writing/drama).
