Celebrate Lights On Afterschool Oct. 23, 2014!
We are celebrating the importance of our afterschool program in the Fort Atkinson Community! On Thursday, October 23rd we will be opening our Blue Club Doors to the community to see all the great things happening at the Boys & Girls Club of Fort Atkinson. We will be having a regular Club day with a few extra special activities from 4:30-6:00pm. Stop on by Luther, Purdy or Rockwell Elementary Schools from 3-6 on Thursday to celebrate the power of afterschool programs like ours!
"Launched in October 2000, Lights On Afterschool is the only nationwide event celebrating afterschool programs and their important role in the lives of children, families and communities. The effort has become a hallmark of the afterschool movement and generates media coverage across the country each year.
The Afterschool Alliance organizes Lights On Afterschool to draw attention to the many ways afterschool programs support students by offering them opportunities to learn new things—such as science, community service, robotics, Tae Kwon Do and poetry—and discover new skills. The events send a powerful message that millions more kids need quality afterschool programs." from Afterschool Alliance.org
