Federal Valley Resource Center to Host After School Program

Submitted by Emily Beveridge, AmeriCorps*VISTA with the Federal Valley Resource Center

This spring Federal Hocking sixth graders will have a unique opportunity to participate in a new after school program. The Federal Valley After School Program will take place at the Federal Valley Resource Center, located in the Old Middle School Buildings, roughly two miles from the current Middle/High School. Dedicated volunteers and board members run the Federal Valley Resource Center, many of whom are alumni of the Old School. It has long been their dream to have an ongoing after school program, because the Center is so conveniently located to the current Middle/High School, and because of the quality of the facilities at the FVRC. After more than half a decade of renovations, the Center is the perfect place for many activities. The campus includes a freestanding gym, basketball court, and auditorium and computer lab with Internet access. This program is specifically geared to sixth graders who may need extra help in school, or those who need quality enrichment while parents are still at work. Sixth graders were recommended to be the specific focus group for the Program because they lack many after school activities that are available to 7th and 8th grade students.

Starting Monday April 9th, FVRC will begin hosting the Federal Valley After School Program. This is collaboration between Ohio University’s School of Education, and School of Social Work. Interns from both Schools will be available Monday-Thursday afternoons to work with the children who participate in the program. A snack will be served everyday, there will time for indoor/outdoor athletic activities, an enrichment activity provided by the interns, and there will be tutoring time for homework. Transportation on school buses will be provided after school from Federal Hocking, and students can ride the activity bus after the program ends at 4:45 to either Amesville or Coolville Elementary, or parents can pick up children at Federal Valley Resource Center at that time. This program will hopefully be continued next fall, and beyond as an ongoing program. If you want to help, we are looking to have a parent volunteer available daily, if you wish to donate your time for an afternoon, please contact Emily Beveridge: phone # 740-707-7208, email ew277002@ohio.edu. We also will be accepting donations of craft materials, paper, and bottled water, which will be most appreciated.

My programmer is trying to convince me to move
to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.

But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using WordPress on several websites for about a year and am worried about switching to another platform.
I have heard very good things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can transfer
all my wordpress posts into it? Any kind of
help would be really appreciated!

Feel free to surf to my website trials frontier hack download
