Garrett Elementary school is committed to not only meeting the academic needs of all students, but to focus on encouraging the whole child. We are excited to announce that after school program will continue at Garrett Elementary School for the 2018-2019 school year under Partnership Grant. Due to our limited grant funding, the program will be offered as a "fee-based" academic enrichment program. Sheldon ISD will begin offering the After School Program in on September 4th, 2018 servicing over 100 families throughout grade levels Pre-Kth-5th. The after school program will take on a focus of providing innovative and interactive lessons & activities to support the students in all areas of life. The program provides students with academic opportunities designed to complement the districts' academic programs. The goal of the program is to extend learning time for each student using a discovery learning approach through hands-on exploration. The after school program is the catalyst to assist in closing the achievement gap with a long range goal of increasing academic performance.
