Lights On After School

LOA-med-a

Kid’s Place at Sequoyah will participate in the 16th annual Lights On After School on Thursday, October 15.  While the nation-wide after school celebration will take place on October 22, Sequoyah hosts their annual Scamper on the 23rd.

Lights On After School is an event that is meant to raise awareness about the benefits of quality after school programming, and the movement is hosted by the Afterschool Alliance.  You can find out more at http://afterschoolalliance.org/.

As we did last year, we will host our event on the school playground from 3:30-5:30.  Not only will we have demonstrations from our clubs, face painting, and a special surprise for our kids, but much more!

We will also be collecting items for the Gentle Barn’s new Knoxville location.  The Gentle Barn helps connect inner-city and underprivileged youth with rehabilitated farm animals to help “teach children kindness, compassion and empathy for all living beings.”  Find out more about the Gentle Barn at http://www.gentlebarn.org/.  Each item donated will be reciprocated with a chance to win one of our fabulous prizes!

Please plan to attend KP’s Lights On After School event, even if for just a moment.  We will showcase what the kids have been working on thus far and host an open house for our parents.  More information to come!!

If you are interested in volunteering for our event, please contact Ms. Dana.  We will need help with popping popcorn, collecting items for donation, or other fairly simple tasks.
