Edgemont Elementary is excited to announce the start of an after-school program that will be as fun as it is focused on increasing student achievement. Thanks to generous support of Salt Lake County, the Department of Workforce Services, Sandy City and the Canyons Board of Education and Administration, starting Jan. 13, 2014 our school will house an after-school program for 125 students from Edgemont and Bell View elementary schools. Participating students, who will be chosen on a first-come, first-served, space-available basis, will gather with friends, learn social skills, enjoy a nutritious snack, participate in supervised physical education activities, spend time in computer labs, and receive tutoring and homework help from educators who teach at Edgemont or Bell View elementary schools. The Boys and Girls Club will be working with Canyons District to provide the supervision of the children in the program, which will be held on the days students are in school. Registration starts Thursday, Dec. 12, 2013. Please complete the registration application and submit it to the school’s office. Parents will be required to sign a waiver of participation and agree to pick up their children by 5:30 p.m. Monday-Thursday and by 5 p.m. on Fridays. Transportation home will not be provided to participating students.
