21st Century Community Learning Center is proudly serving students at,
Newport Primary, Newport Intermediate, and Newport High School.
What is the 21st Century Community Learning Center (21st CCLC)?
This federally-funded program supports a learning center that provides Newport Independent Schools’ students with academic enrichment opportunities during non-school hours. It will also offer students enrichment activities through exposure to diverse recreational, social and cultural activities. In addition, the CLC will provide fun, family-focused activities to help promote parental engagement in and outside the home.
The 21st Century program will strive to help students develop the skills they need to succeed in life while also preparing them for college and future careers.
What does programming look like?
After school clubs will begin in the month of September and run through May. Programs will operate Monday through Thursday, 2:45-5:00 pm at NHS and 3:00PM to 5:00PM at both NPS and NIS. Programs run on a weekly basis and begin with a healthy snack followed by required homework help.
Each club/ program will incorporate homework assistance/technology time, an educational activity as well as a physical activity. All students are dismissed at 5:00PM are to be picked up by parent/authorized adult, or they have the privilege of walking home (must have prior guardian approval).
How do I sign my child up?
All students must fill out a CLC registration form in order to be registered for after school clubs. Once the form is received by 21st CCLC staff, the student and family will then be contacted to discuss schedule and child’s interest. From there, students will either be added to programming or put on a waiting list to join at a later date. SPOTS ARE LIMITED.
Is there a morning program?
Yes, NPS and NIS Wildcat Morning Program begin the first day of school and run until the last day or school. Hours of operation are 6:50AM-7:50AM, Monday through Friday. NIS students will enter into the school gymnasium where they will participate in several physical activates of their choosing for 30 minutes, they will then have the option to work on computers/IPAD or finish homework with a certified teacher. NPS students will enter through the front doors of the Primary. Students will enjoy a healthy breakfast before school from 7:30AM-7:55AM.
