Afterschool Academy Students show off the light bulbs colored in recognition of Lights On Afterschool




The Trousdale County Afterschool Academy celebrated Lights On Afterschool during the week of October 25-29. The event is a national rally for afterschool programs organized by the Afterschool Alliance. Among highlights shared by the Alliance are the benefits of programs, including inspiring children to learn, keeping them safe in the hours in the afternoon time, and giving working parents peace of mind that their children are safe and supervised after the school day ends. Also noted is the need for additional support for afterschool programs. Trousdale County's program is funded in part by a grant from the Lottery for Education Afterschool Program (LEAPS), parent fees, other grants , and donations, and serves students from Kindergarten through fifth grade at Trousdale County Elementary School.
