Wayland-Cohocton Central School District is pleased to announce we will be offering the Encompass After School Program again this year for students in the Middle School, grades 5-8. This program is made available through a partnership among Wayland-Cohocton Central School District and EnCompass Resources for Learning, a non-profit academic outreach agency. This academically-based program will engage students in small-group targeted ELA tutoring sessions, as well as Project-Based Learning opportunities. Together, kids and teachers discover, discuss, and investigate topics while also improving their reading skills.
We are looking forward to having a lot of fun and providing many meaningful learning experiences. Please consider enrolling your child so that he/she may join us in exploring interesting topics and answering questions about the world in which we live.
Here is some important information:
There is no charge for the program.
The after-school program dates are February 1 – June 11, 2021.
Students would attend 2 days per week (days based on your child’s cohort)
The program is open to students in the hybrid model (students would attend in-person on the days they are already in school), as well as students who are 100% virtual (students would attend virtually via Google Meet 2 days per week).
Students will receive targeted ELA tutoring/instruction with no more than a 1: 6 teacher/student ratio.
Extended learning opportunities will be provided in small group, socially-distanced settings using inquiry-based and project-based learning principles with ratios of 1 teacher for every 6 students.
During program hours, students will be provided with a healthy snack.
Virtual Family Nights will be held twice to share the experiences of the students.
The program is limited to forty-two students. Priority will be given on a first come, first served basis.
Due to no sports bus run this year, students would need to be picked up at 5:10 on program nights.. The district is not able to provide transportation home from program this year.
Applications are due to the MS Office (attention Anne Baker) by Monday, January 18th, or sooner if possible. Applications can be picked up in the middle school office or can be found by clicking HERE. (Please print and return.)
If you have any additional questions, please feel free to contact Anne Baker at (585) 728-2551 or via e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org).
We look forward to a program of extended learning and extended fun!
