After School Charger Club Program

Ansonia Public Schools will be opening the third year of the Charger Club after school program, which is funded by a State Department of Education 21st Century Community Learning Center Grant. Students will be enrolled on an invitation basis starting in September. 

The after school program serves 100 students in Grades 5-8 and operates Monday-Friday for 150 days. Students invited to the program receive homework assistance in their schools three days each week; attend the Boys & Girls Club five days each week for fitness and other enrichment activities; and participate in hands-on science classes once a week at the Ansonia Nature & Recreation Center. Additional programs involving parents and/or Charger club families are being held in conjunction with Valley Regional Adult Education, Parent Child Resource Center, and Junior Achievement of Western Connecticut.

A new logo, created by AMS student Leandra Tuttle, was announced on Dec. 14, 2016 and appears at the top of the page.

A monthly workshop series for parents/guardians was held from December 2016-April 2017. Here are links to handouts created by the Anti-Defamation League, which were provided at the first workshop: 10 Ways to Respond to Bullying, Taking a Stand, Bullying Prevention and Intervention Tips for Families, and What to Do if your Child Exhibits Bullying Behavior

Newsletters are published throughout the year and will be posted here, as well as copies provided to parents and guardians. 

For the parents and guardians of the 100 students enrolled in the program last year, we hope your children had a great experience!
