Chalk Talk: Three Reasons Why After-School Activities Are Important
Many school districts offer after-school activities for children whose parents work past the final bell of the school day. These activities range from arts and crafts to tutoring to fun and games. There are many benefits to these programs, but three of them stand above the rest. First, students in these programs have a safe place to stay while they await their parents or guardians to pick them up. Rather than being latchkey kids or spending time on the street, children stay in school and continue their learning and growth. Second, the educational opportunities afforded to children after school ensures they acquire the knowledge and skills they need to be successful. Tutoring and other academic programs promote faster acquisition of skills, allowing children to keep pace with the rigors of instruction. Lastly, after-school programs allow children to interact with other kids in a positive manner. By meeting kids from other classes and grades, students expand their social circle and build positive social skills.
