Program Description

EMU Bright Futures at Hicks Elementary serves second, third, fourth and fifth grade students. We have a highly structured program with foundations of academic support and student interest-based clubs with daily focuses on being active, creative, and STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math) learning. Club offerings may include Podcasting, Crafty Kids, Fitness Fun, Short Story, and TikTok, and many more! Clubs are 8-week long activities that give our students an opportunity to try unique things and create big projects.

As a staff, we strive to support our students’ continual growth in social and emotional learning and student voice  We provide opportunities for new academic experiences while cultivating a mutually respectful community for all students and families in our program. 

We at EMUBF Hicks recognize the importance of strong relationships between the family, school staff, and program. We actively encourage families to volunteer their time and skills with our students at program, and we meet quarterly for Family Meetings to engage parent and family feedback about program happenings. We also encourage all families to participate in school functions where, when possible, we volunteer our time! Here at EMUBF Hicks, we are incredibly lucky to have such a high parent and family participation in our program.
