ACE Program Begins its Second Year at Groesbeck ISD
The ACE Program – After School Centers on Education for the Groesbeck ISD is now accepting applications for the 2014-15 school year. This will be the second year of operation for the ACE Program for Groesbeck ISD. While there is a definite focus on students who have some academic needs, ALL STUDENTS in Groesbeck ISD, Grades K-12 are eligible to attend. At the elementary level, only 300 students will be accepted, and at the secondary level only 100 students will be accepted. If interested in having your child participate, you can pick up an application at the Enge campus until July 24, 2014, at which time the school will be closed until fall opening. So, get your child’s application in early to ensure a “spot” for the fall.
The ACE Program provides academic and enrichment classes for all students conducted by Highly Qualified teachers and paraprofessionals. This program ensures some valuable time for students to work on their homework with assistance from teachers and other personnel. At the elementary level, homework time will be available on Tuesdays and Thursdays ONLY for a period of 2 hours. Although this time allows for at least four hours per week, some grade levels may require more time needed for homework assignments to be continued at home. The ACE Program will also provide special enrichment classes, such as cooking classes, sports, technology, drama, choir, archery, scrapbooking, dance, recycling, and many other classes. These classes will be held on Mondays and Wednesdays. This next school year, the ACE program at the elementary level will provide special outreach programs such as African Drum and Dancers, Chinese Acrobats, and Rainforest Animals, to name a few. The ACE Program will also offer GED training for persons out of school and Driver’s Education to High School students.
The ACE Program in the fall is in operation Monday – Thursday, from 3:30 – 5:45. Bus transportation is provided for regular bus riders. Students are required to attend 30 days within the school year. For information, contact Linda Wilson at the Enge campus or Stephanie Sullivan.
