Visions Session V: April 22 - June 6, 2013
Session 4 brought 73 students grades K-6 to Visions After School Program! K-2 students enjoyed Gym Games, Art projects, Dance parties, free play and homework help. The older students were busy as well.
Lego Robotics was such a big hit we are bringing it back next session for another group of students to experience. Students were cooking pizza and mac and cheese, playing hard in the gym, researching and experimenting for E-Cyber, learning verses and songs while jumping rope, experiencing the Power Point process and getting their homework done!
I can't believe spring is here and we are getting ready for the last Visions session of the year! We have more great activities for students to enjoy in this next session. We strive to make our program activities exciting, the homework café meaningful and helpful to students. As always, if you have ideas or suggestions, please let us know. Remember, Visions is a great place to come before sports. Students may attend for a healthy snack, do their homework, and with a note from home, may go on to practice or the game.

Visions Program at Rivendell

On December 13, 2011, the Visions Afterschool Program hosted a site visit from the State of Vermont 21st Century team. They spent the day talking to staff, students and administrators about Visions, and used the afternoon to visit our three afterschool programs. We received very high marks for the programming we provide our students. They were impressed with our staff and inspired by our kids. We were highly commended for our structure and organization at all three sites. They said we have set the bar “very high” and are doing an outstanding job serving families in the Rivendell district. A heartfelt thanks to all of you for your commitment and support of Visions. This program is outstanding because of those who volunteer their time and effort.
Community service is very important to all of us at Rivendell. We ask students to take part in atleast one workshop during the year (one hour a week) to help the people and places around our towns. Please encourage your child to share with the Rivendell community.
Students from the Thayer School of Engineering are working with Rivendell Visions students to get kids excited about math and science. During this trip they built towers, boats, and rockets.
The Visions program at Samuel Morey is meant to provide quality after school enrichment activities for our students in grades K-2, and 3-6, Monday through Wednesday from 3:00 – 5:30 (3-5 pm for K-2) and Thursday from 1:45-5:30 (1:45-5:00 for K-2).
The after school time begins with a snack and some physical activity either in the gym or outside. The Homework Café takes place everyday. The staff, in addition to Dartmouth Reads students is able to help students with their homework in small group settings.
The Visions program runs in six week sessions with different enrichment activities offered everyday. Students, with help from their parents, are able to choose the activities that interest them. Some students come once or twice a week and some students come everyday. The Visions coordinator works hard to enlist community members that have special areas of interest and talents to share with the students. When possible, we take students into the community to learn first hand about jobs and activities around their area.
Some of the activities that students have enjoyed are; mountain biking, puppetry, drama, Junior Achievement, gym games, Young Adventure’s Club and science toys. Students from the Visions program are also designing and making a reading garden outside our school. They have already made wooden benches for the area.
The Visions program offers wonderful opportunities for students, provides a place for homework help and helps many families with after school supervision. We are so fortunate that we are able to offer these opportunities for the children of our towns.
