The Center

We have selected The Center, Sacramento Chinese Community Service Center as our new after school program. The After School Safety and Education (ASES) program provides a safe and supportive place for students after school. This program is designed for students to receive academic support and an engaging enrichment program. Daily homework assistance is offered however, ASES is not a homework completion program. Parents are responsible for checking in with students daily to verify homework completion. A healthy snack and supper will be provided daily for your child. ASES is a grant-funded program which enables students to attend at no cost to families. Grant funding is based on your student’s full participation in the program. Therefore students are expected to attend the entire length of the program daily. Students who are frequently picked up early or have more than three unexcused absences may be removed from the program.

ASES is a continuum of the regular school day. The same Code of Conduct applies to the after school program. Our three encompassing program rules are SHOW RESPECT, MAKE GOOD DECISIONS, and SOLVE PROBLEMS. We will work closely with the parents to promote success in the after school environment, however, after three office referrals for behavior, students may be removed from the program.

ASES operates every regular school day that American Lakes Elementary is in session however, ASES may be closed three days throughout the school year for staff professional development and training. The program begins immediately after school is dismissed and you may begin picking up your student(s) at 5:30 pm with the program ending at 6 pm. Every student must be signed out daily. Students will only be released to over 18 adults listed on the application. Identification is required for pick-up. Applications are available at the beginning of each school year in the front office.
