Program Description

Bright Futures at Marshall Upper Elementary School is a fun, safe and engaging after-school program available to all students at our school (5th & 6th grade).  Our goal is to help students both academically and socially to grow into strong young adults as they move onto middle school.  Our program runs 3:20pm-6pm. each day, Mondays through Thursdays throughout the school year.  During the summer, we run a morning summer program in June and July (beginning the Monday after the school-year ends).


We offer several activities each day.  Daily Homework Help allows our students to have a quiet place to work, and to get help from peers or adult staff if needed.  Students without homework will take part in a variety of academic-based activities, generally involving math and ELA, designed to get them thinking in new and creative ways.  The goal of these activities is to present these subjects in different ways, and interest our students in new ways of thinking about these subjects.  We also offer clubs each day.  Clubs are 8-week long activities that give our students an opportunity to try unique things and create big projects.  Our clubs are determined by student interest -- what they want, we provide!
