Sheldon Elementary school is committed to not only meeting the academic needs of all students, but to focus on encouraging the whole child. We are excited to announce that after school program will continue at Sheldon Elementary School for the 2021-2022 school year under the Nita M. Lowery 21st Century Community Learning Center Grant.
Due to the grant award, the program will be free to all participating students. Sheldon ISD will offer the program beginning August 25, 2021 servicing over 100 families in grades Pre-K to 5th. The after school program will take on a focus of providing innovative and interactive lessons & activities to support the students in all areas of life. The program provides students with academic opportunities designed to complement the districts' academic programs.
The goal of the program is to extend learning time for each student using a discovery learning approach through hands-on exploration. The after school program is the catalyst to assist in closing the achievement gap with a long range goal of increasing academic performance.
