FREE Before & After School Registration - June 17

Last week, we announced that we would no longer have after-school programming at Auburn Junior High School or Auburn High School due to the changes in grant funding. We are pleased to announce that BTW has since been able to secure additional funds to offer after school programming at the junior high and high school a few days each week! Please note, registration for all programs will be on a first come, first served basis, and registration packets are available to complete at the event on Monday, June 17. If you are unable to attend the registration event, please call 315-253-3207 to find out how to register your child.

We are thrilled to announce that Booker T. Washington has secured two New York State Learning and Enrichment After-School Program Supports (LEAPS) grants, replacing the Booker T. Washington (BTW) Advantage grants. The total award is an impressive $10.5 million, which equates to $350,000 for every elementary school and the BTW site for the next five years.

For the first time, Owasco Elementary School is eligible for a grant, and we are delighted to include them in this award. This funding will enable us to offer comprehensive after-school programming across our elementary schools, ensuring that our students continue to receive enriching educational experiences beyond the regular school hours.

Additionally, this grant will help us maintain our current services for homeless families for the next five years, providing critical support to those in need.

Unfortunately, due to these changes, we will no longer have after-school programming at Auburn Junior High School or Auburn High School next year. We understand the importance of these programs and are actively exploring other options to provide after-school offerings in the future.

We are pleased to inform you that our Community Schools grant will continue for the next four years, supporting before-school programming at Casey Park, Genesee, Seward, and Herman Elementary Schools.

To kick off these exciting new opportunities, we will be holding BTW's Before/After-School Registration Day on Monday, June 17th, from 4 - 6 PM at the Booker T. Washington Community Center. Registration will be available for the following sites:
  • Booker T. Washington Community Center - After School Program
  • Casey Park Elementary School - Before and After School Program
  • Genesee Elementary School - Before and After School Program
  • Herman Elementary School - Before and After School Program
  • Owasco Elementary School - After School Program
  • Seward Elementary School - Before and After School Program

We are incredibly excited to share these highly competitive grant awards with you. This achievement is yet another testament to our strong partnership with the Booker T. Washington Community Center, especially Executive Director Denise Farrington and Program Director Brandon Wakeham.

Thank you for your continued support and dedication to our students' success. We look forward to the positive impact these grants will have on our community.
