Due to the age of the students in the Acmetonia Elementary School building, a limited number of activities outside of the classroom are available to them. The building Parent Teacher Association (PTA) organizes an After-School Activities Program over the course of the school year. In addition, other activities such as scouting, sports leagues, and reading programs are offered by community groups and advertised in the school.
Each year, the Acmetonia Parent Teacher Association sponsors and organizes an After-School Activities program for students in Kindergarten through grade 3. Teachers, parents, and other staff teach the classes in topics such as: cooking, gymnastics, karate, arts/crafts, and various sports activities. Classes are offered on a semester basis and students select the courses in which they are interested and would like to enroll. The classes are usually held from 3:15 – 4:00 p.m. in rooms throughout the primary building. Parents are responsible for transportation home for children.
YMCA Day Care
The Allegheny Valley School District offers before- and after-school child care through the YMCA of New Kensington. The group provides creative and constructive activities to help in a student’s development. Well-trained staff provide safe, affordable, high-quality care so parents can have peace of mind while they work. The YMCA school-age care gives children the chance to express their talents in the arts, sports, and other areas of interest. Children find out what success is all about in an approach that says everybody plays, everybody wins. Time is set aside for tackling homework, with adult help available. The YMCA staff know how to challenge children and how to listen to them.
