Dawson's After School Academy (ASA) provides a supervised, state licensed program for students in grades K through eight. ASA is open from Monday through Thursday until 6:00 p.m. Students have the opportunity to complete homework and participate in outdoor and indoor activities appropriate for their developmental level. ASA is available to all Dawson students whose parents have preregistered them and have signed the appropriate handbook for the program. We are committed to providing continuous, high quality instruction in a safe and caring environment.
After School Academy also provides an array of enrichment classes, as well as music lessons in which parents can register their child(ren). We offer a variety of classes, along with piano, guitar, flute, trumpet, and saxophone with fun and experienced instructors.
ASA begins with attendance, followed by snack time at 3:30 p.m. Children may eat peanut free snacks from home. After snack, children head outside (weather permitting) to enjoy some free play, followed by homework and quiet reading. There is no charge for after-school care; classes and lesson fees vary.
ASA must comply with current state licensing regulations. This means, all students whom attend ASA must be registered for the program. ASA must meet and keep staff/child ratios, health, and safety requirements set by the state. If ASA is full and a parent contacts the Director to register less than 24 hours in advance, we cannot guarantee that a space will be available.
