Coleman County ACE Program celebrating Lights on Afterschool
This week marks the 17th annual celebration of Lights on Afterschool. Every day ACE works to support youth and families.
Lights on Afterschool provides a unique opportunity to connect with school leadership, families, and partners to communicate the message of the importance of afterschool programs. Lights on Afterschool began with the goal of drawing nationwide attention to the importance of afterschool for children, families, and communities. The movement started with 1200 participating communities and has grown to over 7500 participating communities projected this year with over 1 million participants. This is a day to celebrate the high quality programs that are in place state and nationwide, a day to engage our families and communities in programming, and a day to share our successes with the administrators and principals in our schools.
The Coleman County ACE Program is joining the celebration and offering a time for parents and community members to come experience first-hand what fantastic activities the ACE Program is providing the youth of Coleman County. There will be an open house for students to display their masterpieces, student presentations, and much more!
Please come visit your local Coleman County ACE center Monday, October 24, 2016 from 4:00 to 5:30 p.m. to help us celebrate. Lights on Afterschool truly is an opportunity to keep the lights on and bright for our whole community!
On behalf of the ACE Program, we thank you for your continued support and hope to see you there.
