Program Information

One of the goals of Project Kidz Connect is to complement and support the core learning that happens during the school day and school year. Connecting interactive and engaging activities, such as STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math), robotics, arts/dance/drama, and sports, to school day academic standards, behaviors, and habits can increase student engagement, widen student perspectives, spark curiosity, and boost academic performance.
 
NMUSD’s Expanded Learning Program includes the following components:
  1. Academic Support: Project Kidz Connect plays an important role in supporting academic achievement. Every day the staff designates time and optimal space for students to complete homework assigned by classroom teachers. The staff actively assist students in developing organizational, time-management, and study skills that help students complete their homework and encourage their overall academic success. Additionally, PKC staff engage with the daytime teachers to learn strategies that reinforce concepts taught during the school day. 

  2. Enrichment:  Students will have opportunities to participate in educational experiences that are challenging and enriching, and extend their academic abilities in the arts, dance, music, science, drama, and sports by partnering with outside community enrichment agencies, as well as community-based organization, such as the YMCA and Boys and Girls Club.

  3. Snack: At no cost to program participants, the district’s Nutrition Services Department will provide a healthful snack to all students. To establish healthful nutrition and reinforce healthful choices, the composition of these snacks meets the Federal Free and Reduced Lunch guidelines for nutrition and portions.
