Before/After School Care - Kids Adventures



Inspired by the short film, ‘Caine’s Arcade,’ the Cardboard Challenge was an event presented by the Imagination Foundation and Tiffany Tupps that celebrates child creativity and the role communities can play in fostering it. This October, kids of all ages were invited to build anything they can dream up using cardboard, recycled materials and imagination. Then on Thursday, October 6th, 2016, teachers, parents and communities come together and played!  Check out pictures of what our kindergarten through 5th grade student at Arkansas Elementary created!

Arkansas Girls on the Run!

Arkansas Girls on the Run!

Girls on the Run1



Congrats to our 3rd -5th grade girls and Teachers who successfully completed the Girls on the Run 5k. Over a period of 10-12 weeks, girls in the 3rd through 5th grade participate in an after-school program like no other. Designed to allow every girl to recognize her inner strength, the Girls on the Run curriculum inspires girls to define their lives on their own terms. Throughout the season, the girls make new friends, build their confidence and celebrate all that makes them unique.

The Girls on the Run lessons encourage positive emotional, social, mental and physical development. Participants explore and discuss their own beliefs around experiences and challenges girls face at this age. They also develop important strategies and skills to help them navigate life experiences. We start with helping the girls get a better understanding of who they are and what’s important to them. Then, we look at the importance of team work and healthy relationships. And, finally, the girls explore how they can positively connect with and shape the world. We are proud of all of our student accomplishments! ‪#‎thatshowweroar‬
