Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, San Francisco public schools remain closed. Read on to learn more about the Neighborhood Center’s virtual programming for Alamo Elementary School students this fall.
This Fall, the Alamo virtual after-school program will provide opportunities for fun, engaging activities, social-emotional learning, and academic support for your children via Zoom.
We plan on doing STEAM and art based activities, with service learning and multicultural art opportunities included. We will also host social-emotional groups, where students can build friendships and explore their identity and community. For academic support, we will be collaborating with the teachers at Alamo to have copies of homework assignments and an understanding of their teaching methods to improve our academic student support classes.
We will also be using our website to provide asynchronous learning opportunities. Students can log on and view at-home activity instruction videos, puzzles, and games. Alamo families can access our website here.
