afterschool program

21st CenturyCommunity Learning Center (CCLC)

The Bridge Downeast offers a 21st Century Community Learning Center (CCLC) afterschool program during the school year. The program provides kindergarten-8th grade students with homework assistance, tutoring, EOG test prep, remediation, and team building activities.

The Bridge Downeast Afterschool Program is held at the Ramsey Center on Harkers Island and runs Monday through Thursday from 3pm- 6pm. Students will be offered an after school snack, as well as help with homework and enrichment activities.

This is a free program for students in the Down East Community. Funding for this program comes from a 21st CCLC grant and donations.

some recent highlights

In November, our students painted Santa seashell ornaments for our tree at Core Sound Waterfowl Museum. These vew students were able to go down and decorate the tree, which we think looked very lovely!
Thanks to the amazing generosity of our community through donations, we were able to have a holiday party for our students. We had a pizza party complete with cookie decoration and present opening. It was an awesome way to send the students off for holiday break.
This year, the students have been enjoying getting out and exploring our local nature trails. The students love going outside on these beaufitul days.
