“Capture their Hearts and their Minds will Follow”
The SRISD ACE Program Mission is to help support the District’s goals by offering a high-quality after school program.
Dear SRISD students and parents,
The Santa Rosa ISD ACE Team welcomes all students to the 2020-2021 school year.
We understand the current situation and will work together with each campus to offer the best and safest afterschool program possible.
We will begin the ACE After school Program fall semester activities on September 8th. In keeping with the school district’s Reopening Guidelines, the ACE program will begin the fall semester by only offering virtual academic assistance through homework assistance and tutoring during the virtual instructional days. We want to support our teachers in refocusing our students to academic work. We will adjust our ACE program strategies and add more activities in conjunction with the district’s plan as it progresses.
Once students return to school for face-to-face instruction, we will resume our regular ACE program activities. We have an exciting after school program planned for students and parents. The ACE Program will offer the following activities once students return to school for face-to-face instruction.
- Academic Tutoring/Homework Help – ACE will offer academic tutoring in the core subject areas at each campus. Teachers will be available on a scheduled tutoring time at each campus. Homework assistance will be offered daily at each campus. Tutoring schedules will be announced as they are developed and will be posted at each school’s website.
- Enrichment Activities – ACE will offer an array of additional activities that support student learning, character development, social emotional learning, health & wellness, and fine arts. ACE activities will include art, dance, sports, Greenpower Electric Car Club, archery, gardening, culinary club, and much more.
- Family Engagement Activities – ACE will offer services and activities to parents of students participating in the ACE program. These activities will include ESL classes, computer literacy classes, family strengthening classes, nutrition classes, and social work services that include social-emotional support and information and referral services.
In addition to the ACE Program, we are excited to announce that SRISD was once again awarded the Texas Parks and Wildlife CO-OP grant. This highly competitive grant will allow Santa Rosa ISD to once again offer outdoor activities such as camping, fishing, kayaking, hiking, archery and much more outdoor sports. In particular, students will be visiting and camping at several state parks across Texas. These activities will begin once it is deemed safe to do so under the current COVID Pandemic.
Furthermore, SRISD was also given an additional year extension of the Juntos Podemos program thru the Texas A&M College Station University. This is a federally funded grant program received by Texas A&M and shared with SRISD. This program offers Teen Pregnancy Prevention classes and social work services to middle school and high school students.
We understand that these can be challenging and stressful times. We are committed to helping each student succeed both academically and personally by offering a network of support services to students and their families. We are working together with school and community to give each student the best chance for success!
