    Maryvale was awarded a 21st Century Community Learning Center (21st CCLC) grant. The grant allows us to create an after-school program free of charge for our Primary and Intermediate students, Kindergarten through 5th grade.

    It Includes:

    • Academic enrichment activities that can help students meet state and local achievement standards.
    • A broad array of additional services designed to reinforce and complement the regular academic program, such as: drug and violence prevention programs, counseling programs, art, music, and recreation programs, technology education programs, and character education programs.
    • Literacy and related educational development services to the families of children who are served in the program.

     

     

    Maryvale Program Details

    The program runs after-school from 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. at Primary (5:15 p.m. Parent Pickup)  and 2:55 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. at the Intermediate School (5:15 p.m. Parent Pickup).

     

    Attendance Requirements:

     - Students can be dismissed earlier than stated    PS 5:15     IS 5:15

    - Students must be IN PROGRAM a minimum of 3 days  (Partial days included:  4 p.m. at the Intermediate & 4:30 p.m. at the Primary)

       please be mindful of...

     - over the course of the 8-month program, a student cannot miss more than 150 hours in total

    -  The program runs Monday to Friday with our Maryvale faculty working collaboratively with the Wille Hutch Jones Educational & Sports Program

     

    The FREE program runs September 30th through May 29th, but families can still receive after-school services in September and in June for a charge during those months from the YMCA.  (Enrollment information can be obtainbed by calling the Lancaster YMCA at 716-684-2395). 

     

    The program mixes academics, nutritious snacks, enrichment services and local community involvement.

     

    The use of 21st CCLP hopes to improve test scores, increase proficiency gaps, better school attendance and continue a child’s harmonious school attitude.

     

    We are an enrichment program, not child-care based.  Our program runs with many certified teachers and highly qualified staff. We run by schedule and offer a program that allows the child to work with his or her body and mind. We echo many school concepts as we are an extension of the school day.
