Our After School Program
It is not religious based and welcomes all students to 12 fourth grade students who need extra help and support in math and reading at our nearby middle school. We have no curriculum, but base our tutoring on needs of the students individually. The program emphasizes rewards for positive behavior. We also strive to expose each year’s class to community experiences and learning out- side the classroom. Some of those experiences have been visiting local professional offices, role playing Colusa City Council meetings, touring the Colusa County Courthouse, Main Library, and Colusa National Wildlife Refuge. We end each class with an art or craft project to be completed in one or two sessions. These projects contribute to pleasant and positive achievement, while also introducing some principles and appreciation of the arts. Tutors in the after school program are all volunteers from the community as well as our church who are dedicated to helping students to improve their academic standing and to become productive, good citizens as adults.
