We are getting back into the swing of things as fall approaches and with school already here. We’re excited to be launching some revamped programming beginning next week in the Powderhorn Community.
Historically, Ace | Readers, our literacy program, was held on Monday evenings for students Kindergarten through 3rd grade. On Wednesday’s, Ace | After School, our more general-focused program was open to students Kindergarten through 8th grade.
We’ve learned quite a few things over the last few years and, in light of this learning and the significant growth we’ve experienced, have made a few changes this fall:
To create a bit more rhythm and consistency between our Monday and Wednesday programming, both these nights will be for students K-5th grade. While Monday will have a heavier literacy focus, both nights will also now have literacy elements interwoven within.
We’re learning most middle school students would prefer not sharing a program with first graders☺. Consequently, our middle school students get to do their own thing on Friday evenings! Something relevant to where they are in life, school, relationships and faith.
Prayers encouraged. Pray for prolonged energy for our staff. It gets to be a fun yet demanding year for our leaders. Pray for our volunteers who make our programs run. Pray for more volunteers as we plan to launch new programming in two new locations come January! Pray for our kids—they they’d grow in literacy, confidence, empowerment and faith.
