Description of Activities And Educational Programs
Homework Period: A quiet time in which scholars independently complete as much homework for the day as possible. The staff member’s job is to give assistance to scholars, however, it is not a tutoring session.
Table Games: Used for recreational/relaxation purposes. Scholars are assisted in selection games that are age appropriate. Socialization and group play skills are encouraged.
Organized Sports: A game that has a set of rules known to all participants. These sports include: basketball, soccer, kickball and gym based sports.
Movies: Shown on our early dismissal days or on rainy days. All movies are educational or recreational in nature and will carry a “G” or “PG” rating. If you wish to opt out of the “PG” movies, just notify us with the program. We will have another activity for your child to participate in.
Recess: A time when scholars may engage in physical activities of their own choosing, such as tag, jump rope, or gym based sports. The field, outdoor play area or gym are used for this activity. Scholars must remain in control during this ‘free play’.
Arrival and Departure Procedure
Scholar will be escorted to the After Bell program by a teacher or, as age appropriate, report to the cafeteria to be admitted into the program. Scholars will sign-in at the attendance table. Attendance will be taken by After Bell staff when transitioning to their classroom.
Parents will park in the lot located on the side (north) portion of Leman Academy. Parents will walk into the cafeteria and sign out their child from the After Bell program. If an unrecognized person is to pick up your scholar(s) be prepare to show picture ID to After Staff. The ID will be verified against the ‘Approved for Scholar Pick Up’ list on file with the school office. If you are sending someone NOT on the approved pick up list, please make arrangements with the front office PRIOR to scholar pick up.
Scholar must be picked up by 6:00 pm. Late fees will accrue after 6:00 pm ($20 per scholars and $1 per minute starting at 6:01 p.m.). Parents who are late picking up their scholar(s) more than three times during the course of a month may face being dropped from the After Bell program.
If your scholar is ‘left’ at the school past 6:30 pm and the school has not been notified of proper arrangements for pick up, we are authorized to call the Marana City Police Department to escort your scholar home.
The After Bell Program operates on days when Leman Academy is in session. The After Bell Program may will provide Camps during Fall, Spring and Summer Breaks. Camp notices and information will be posted in advance and placed in the Leman Academy of Excellence newsletter.
It is in the best interest of your scholar and the other scholars if you keep your scholar at home when he or she is ill. Scholars with fever, diarrhea, vomiting will not be admitted to the program. If a scholar becomes ill while at the program, the parent will be called immediately to pick up the child. Parents will be notified regarding contagious illnesses. Scholars will be readmitted when they are 24 hours symptom free.
In accordance with state law, we will not dispense any medication to any scholar without advanced written consent from the parent or guardian. Prescription medication may be given only to the scholar for whom it is prescribed. NO over the counter medication will be administered to any scholar. The parent must complete and have on file at the main office a “Parent Permission to Administer Medication” form.
Scholars are expected to behave in a manner consistent with the code of conduct policy found in the Leman Academy of Excellence Parent/Scholar Handbook. Positive reinforcement is the main form of discipline aside from the guidelines for behavior established in the Parent/Scholar Handbook.
Parents may set up a meeting with the program Director to discuss individual needs and concerns. We plan to use a consistent, positive approach including redirection, diversion and
separation, with an eye toward promoting self discipline.
