WELCOME MESSAGE FROM CATHY:

Welcome to Communities In Schools of Clark County! The past year has been full of exciting growth which has allowed us to bring new and expanded programs to elementary school students throughout the Clark County area. Now, in addition to vision screenings; 3,2,1 READ mentoring program; academic tutoring; therapy; and case management for students and families, Communities In Schools of Clark County will be offering Extended Day Learning after-school child care and academic enrichment in every Greater Clark County elementary school.

Before school from 6:30 a.m. and after school from dismissal to 6 p.m., students will take part in a variety of activities including: homework time/homework assistance, after-school 3,2,1 READ Mentoring program, physical education, BrainPOP web-based learning & ISTEP testing preparation; and a wealth of enrichment programs including guest speakers and programs from local organizations (science center, police/fire, humane society, etc.), drama/theatre programs, service learning, arts & crafts, music, Boy Scouts, Jazzercise, and other exciting hands-on experiences. The program will take place at the child’s neighborhood elementary school.
Communities In Schools of Clark County's mission is to surround students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life. The Extended Day Learning program is designed to do just that – provide a safe, fun, academically-rich atmosphere for children to spend those crucial few hours before and after-school when parents must be at work.
