by School's Out Washington | | Posted under Afterschool and Summer News

Lights On Afterschool, the only nationwide event celebrating afterschool programs and their important role in the lives of children, families and communities is right around the corner on Thursday, October 23rd!

Have you planned your event yet? It’s not too late!  The Afterschool Alliance has resources and tools to help you plan an event, garner media attention and support for your program and afterschool. Check-out their Lights On Afterschool webpage. Don’t forget to register your event and put Washington on the map.

School’s Out Washington will be providing two very different opportunities as part of Lights On Afterschool.

  1. School’s Out is partnering with the Pacific Science Center and the Associated Recreation Council to host a Lights On Afterschool Event at Schmitz Park Elementary School on October 23rd from 4-6pm. The Pacific Science Center’s Science on Wheels program will provide hands-on learning experiences for children and families and we will celebrate the importance of afterschool programming in supporting STEM learning. The event is free and light refreshments will be provided. Feel free to contact Krista Galloway at kgallowa [at] schoolsoutwashington [dot] org with any questions about this event
  1. Webinar: Lights On Afterschool is Here! The Afterschool Alliance will be releasing new polling data for Washington State this week! As we celebrate Lights On Afterschool and the importance of programs in supporting young people, join in a conversation to discuss how we can use this new data to influence community support. Join this conversation to hear the latest results and learn concrete action steps to take with parents in your program that will increase support for afterschool programs in your own community. Register for this great opportunity to learn how you can better promote your program and raise awareness around the importance of afterschool. Register now →
