Program Description

During the 2017-2018 school year, Bright Futures at Ypsilanti International Elementary School serves students in first through fifth grade (this is subject to change during the 2018-2019 school year). During the school year, students have the opportunity to participate in various enrichment clubs, such as dance, visual arts, dance, theater, scouting, computer coding, and sports. Community partners this school year include the YMCA, Girl Scouts, and Boy Scouts. These clubs change four times a year based on student input.     We also have daily academic time where students can receive small-group assistance with homework or access education technology. All of our activities are designed to support students’ social-emotional learning, including developing empathy and teamwork skills. We have several special family events each year, both at school and in the community.    Community partners for family events include the Riverside Arts Center, Ypsilanti District Library, and the Michigan Theater.
