G2M (Growing Great Minds) Out-of-School Learning Programs provide a range of high-quality services to support student learning and development, including tutoring and mentoring, homework help, academic enrichment (such as hands-on science or technology programs), community service opportunities, as well as music, arts, sports, and cultural activities. At the same time, centers help working parents by providing a safe environment for students. The following schools have out-of-school enrichment programs: Lincoln, Hawthorn, Riverview, Grant, Thomas Jefferson, Stettin, GD Jones, John Muir and Horace Mann. John Marshall and Montessori may offer a few classes in the 2015-16 school year as well.
The cost for membership is $5 per year per child, or $10 maximum per family. This is not intended to be a barrier to participation. Families are asked to pay, as they are able. At the elementary level, this membership fee will cover full participation in “Kids on the Grow Programs” and at the middle school level will cover enrichment activities such as, but not limited to EXTREME Robotics, Full Body Fitness, Computer Coding, Yoga, Jig Making, and Pay It Forward/Leadership Club. Whether your child attends one class or several, this is a one-time annual fee. Please note that this membership fee is separate from and should not be confused with any athletic fees, membership fees for outside community agencies or other site-specific special programs or events. It also does not include costs for summer programs. We will continue to offer tutorial or teacher recommended academic programs free of charge. A schedule of class offerings and registration is handled at the individual sites.
