SQUARE ROOTS AFTERSCHOOL AND SUMMER PROGRAM

Square Roots (Grades K2-8)

Square Roots is an EEC licensed after school and summer learning program that provides a safe and healthy environment where children are challenged to grow as learners.

Our focus areas are:

Academic Success & Homework Help – With permission from parents, we use information (report cards, standardized test scores, and teachers’ recommendations) from partnering schools to identify the areas that our students need extra support in. We also have volunteer tutors, from local colleges, that provide homework help.

Enrichment Activities – We purposefully integrate art, technology, and physical education into our program in order to: promote creativity and problem solving; use relevant and contemporary platforms for learning; and to help students develop and maintain healthy relationships with their peers.

School and Family Engagement – Our program provides a holistic approach to education and care by bridging the gap between home, school, and community. Our well trained, bilingual staff builds relationships with students’ teachers, school administrators, and parents in order to provide the best, most informed, care possible.  We offer family orientations, bi-monthly open houses, individual parent meetings, student progress reports, and participate in community partnership meetings at our schools.

"Homework is a priority- it is a must...Square Roots is really helpful in this regard, by creating accountability. Kenny’s family does not speak English at home, so this program is very helpful,” says Evelyn."
