Welcome to Aspire Cycle 9
Your child has been invited to participate in the ASPIRE program at John D. Spicer Elementary.ASPIRE is a grant funded, before- and after-school program focusing on academics. Due to limited space, and to better serve students who will most benefit from the program, participation in ASPIRE is by invitation only. This letter is your child’s official invitation to participate in the program.
Morning ASPIRE will run Monday – Friday 7:00am-8:10 am. While your child is attending the after-school program, they will have the opportunity to participate in both academic and enrichment activities each day. Academics will include homework assistance, academic games, and literacy activities. Enrichment classes may include sports, STEM activities, arts and crafts, technology, and much more. Students will be provided a free snack each day before the program begins.
The first two weeks of the program will be online only, from August 24–September 4.
After the first two weeks of the program, we will offer the opportunity for your child to attend face to face. Please select one of the following options on the registration form.
- Option 1 Online Only: September 8–December 18
- Option 2 Face to Face: September 8–December 18
Note: Your selection should match the type of instruction (online or face-to-face) you will choose for your child during the regular school day beginning the third week of school.
The after-school program is Monday–Thursday from 3:35pm–5:45pm. The program hours on Friday are 3:35pm–4:35pm. Students who attend face to face are required to stay the entire time each day, as well as attend all five days each week. Early dismissals are discouraged and must be pre-arranged with the Site Coordinator at least one day in advance. Students will be dismissed at the car pick-up line near the cafeteria promptly at 5:45 pm Monday–Thursday, and at 4:35 pm on Friday. The pick-up procedures used during the regular school day dismissal will also be used in ASPIRE. Please bring your pick up card each day and wear a mask or face shield.
Available spots in the program are in high demand. Please complete the registration form by no later than Wednesday, September 3 if you would like to have your child attend ASPIRE this year.
Failure to submit the completed registration form by September 3 may result in your child losing their spot in the program. If you have other children in your home that attend the same school, please contact me to discuss enrolling them into the program. Attached is a schedule of operation.
