Abstract:
The 21st CCLC program in Pleasantville functions as C.A.R.E (Combining Academics Recreation and Enrichment).  Our target population is the students in grades 4 through 12 who attend Pleasantville Public Schools and surrounding schools.  C.A.R.E.'s comprehensive program is designed to offer academic instruction, remedial tutoring, counseling, mentoring, character education, career exploration, and artistic and cultural enrichment opportunities to students and their families.  The activities for the students are aligned with the NJ State Core Curriculum Content Standards and we also focus on NJASK supplemental support education and HSPA/PARCC preparation.  C.A.R.E. offers the families of our participating students, enrichment programs such as: family literacy activities, computers labs, life skills seminars, and career fairs and education.   Our career awareness program provides all students the global skills to be productive and successful adults in our ever changing world. The program will start on Monday, September 8, 2014 and end on June 18, 2015.  (Note - inclement weather days may extend the ending date) Our elementary centers will be open Monday - Friday from 3:00 pm - 6:30 pm and the middle/high school centers will be open from 3:30 pm - 6:30 pm, throughout the school year.  In an effort to further support our parents, selected C.A.R.E. sites are open from 9:00 am - 4:00 pm when schools are closed for teacher in-service days, some school holidays, and spring break. During the summer, the program will operate the elementary sites from 9:00 am - 4:00 pm and the middle/high school site from 11:30 am - 3:30 pm.  Fridays will be used for off-site field trip excursions that support and re-enforce lessons that have been taught during academic remediation and instructional hours.
