The Fallbrook Union Elementary School District (FUESD) is proud of the new innovative approach to after school care, one that is redefining the way students and families experience enrichment and support. FUESD’s After School Program now in its second year, is offering a fresh and comprehensive perspective on providing students with an enriching, exciting, and complete afterschool experience.
Lilly Perez, Director of the FUESD After School Program, explains, “We aim to create an environment where students can thrive academically, socially, and emotionally. Our approach extends beyond academic assistance and snacks; we provide students with multiple different enrichment activities putting them in the driver’s seat of their own learning and enrichment journey.”
The program’s standout feature is its wide array of activities. Students have the opportunity to explore and engage in activities related to music, STEM, sports, arts, cooking, science, technology, and more. This diverse range ensures that every student can find an activity that piques their interest and passion.
“Our program isn’t one-size-fits-all,” Perez notes. “We believe in catering to the unique talents and interests of each student, encouraging them to explore and discover their passions.”
FUESD’s commitment to quality education is further emphasized by the presence of credentialed teachers as site leaders at each school. This ensures that students receive guidance and support from experienced educators who understand their unique needs.
In addition to academics and enrichment, the program prioritizes social and emotional learning. Lessons and counseling support are offered to promote the overall wellness and emotional intelligence of students, fostering self-confidence and resilience.
Excitement is further heightened by quarterly camps, each ranging from one to three days. These camps conclude with thrilling field trips to destinations like Legoland, Sea Life Aquarium, and California State University San Marcos. These outings provide not only a fun and memorable experience but also contribute to students’ educational growth.
