POUGHKEEPSIE – Saturday Morning Lights is back on October 28 and better than ever.
This year 120 students will have an opportunity to participate in activities centered around three core areas: art, STEAM and health/wellness. It runs through June 10 and space is available.
Saturday Morning Lights is Poughkeepsie City School District’s flagship initiative that gives students from pre-K through 12th grade and their families an opportunity for academic enrichment, positive youth development and family bonding.
“What we have planned for our children is nothing short of amazing. Where else can a child build a robot, bake a cake and play ultimate frisbee all while receiving academic enrichment and expanding their foundational skills?,” Executive Director of Community Schools Natasha Brown said.
Returning to help with the Saturday programming are community-based partners Charlia Frank; Growing STEMZ Foundation; Foundation; the Art Effect; APJ Boxing; Tighten-Ups; Geneva’s, which is doing a cooking school; and Saving Our Tomorrow. Plus, this year’s programming will feature four new partner organizations, Brown said: The Skip Lee Foundation, Loeb Art Museum at Vassar College, Vassar College Athletics and the Boys and Girls Club of Poughkeepsie.
Thanks to the Boys and Girls Club, all-day programming will be available for 50 students.
The morning session runs from 9 a.m.-12 p.m. at Poughkeepsie Middle School and parents/guardians must provide transportation. Afternoon session participants will then be transported to the Boys and Girls Club for programming from noon to 4 p.m. Breakfast and lunch are provided.
During the morning session, there will be parent and family activities offered as well.
