Activity Guide 2017

The Community Services Department offers a Before and After the Bell Program for youth who attend Anthem K-8 or Florence K-8 schools. This program allows parents to drop off their child as earlier as 6:30 a.m. Monday through Friday. At about 7:50 a.m. staff will walk the kids to the cafeteria for the school day. The program will close after the kids are taken to the school but reopens at 3:00 p.m. Our staff will pick up kindergarten through 2nd grade daily and bring them to the program. Where your child will attend, the program determines on the meeting location. Please see more specific instructions below. Once all students are at the program, we have homework time. This allows students to finish homework and get help if needed. After homework time, we have snack time. Craft/ outside time follows snack time and wraps up the day. The program closes promptly at 5:30 p.m. Please notify staff if you are running late or if someone else will pick up your child.

Our program follows the Florence School District Calendar. When school is closed, the program is also closed. We also offer an Intersession Program during Fall, Spring and Summer for an additional fee.

Anthem K-8 Program is located inside of the K-8 in the choir room directly across from the front office. This room is accessible from the inside and outside of the school. Program staff will pick up kids in Kindergarten to 2nd grade. The rest of the kids will meet at the program room directly after school, if not already specified to staff.

Florence K-8 Program is located at the older, lower campus of the school. The room numbers are 13 and 14. You can access the program from Orlando Street, and turn into the lower campus area, just past the gym. Program staff will pick up kids in Kindergarten to 2nd grade. The rest of the kids will meet at the program room directly after school, if not already specified to staff.

The fee for the Before and After the Bell Program is $45.00 per month for residents of Florence and $56.00 per month for non-residents. The registration fee and necessary form must be completed prior to your child attending the program.

Before and After the Bell Program opens Monday, July 24 at 6:30 a.m.
