After-School Enrichment

1 Apr

Mayor Bellamy with Group 2

Children in the YWCA After-School program for grades K-6 participate in a variety of enrichment activities throughout the school year. During March (Women’s History Month), the children studied Women’s History. Group 2 put together a presentation about women’s historical achievements and were treated to a visit from Asheville Mayor Terry Bellamy, a woman who has most certainly made (and continues to make) history.

Group 3 Tours a Fire Truck

Also as part of our monthly focus, After-School participants studied courage.  A few of Asheville Fire Dept.’s courageous firefighters visited Group 3 to talk about safety and gave a tour of the fire truck.

The theme for April is poetry – the children are looking forward to what they will learn this month.
