To support ongoing academic support for SKPS students, the district has partnered with the United Way of the Mid-Willamette Valley to offer an additional Enrichment Academy at Grant Community School.

The United-Way of the Mid-Willamette Valley

This before and after school program for elementary students include activities such as art, STEM activities, technology, help with homework, PE and literacy. 

This specific additional program is supported through the Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief funding. At no cost to families, this enrichment program is designed to meet the needs of children and families and are unique to the school to fit the needs of their students.

“This Enrichment Academy provides students the opportunity to have additional time to be together in a social atmosphere and practice those interpersonal skills that may have declined during quarantine,” said United Way of the Mid-Willamette Valley Director of Enrichment Jodi Blackman. “The program also allows families to go back to work and not have to worry about leaving children at home by themselves – they are in a safe, enriching atmosphere.”

Each community-based organization program is funded through the Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER). You can learn more about ESSER III funding on the State of Oregon website.
