The 2019 Los Alamitos Education Foundation’s Fall after-school classes have come and gone, leaving their mark on more than 1,300 students, as classes for LAEF’s 2020 Spring After School program begin to fill up.
LAEF is continuing to offer free World Language classes to 2nd and 3rd graders across the district. Nearly 200 students enrolled in these free classes ranging from Mandarin and Japanese to Spanish, French and American Sign Language depending on the school site. LAEF’s goal is to expose children to languages they can pursue further in their secondary education. Parents and students alike were delighted with the program and excited to see it continue.
LAEF also expanded the popular Skatedogs after-school skateboarding class to three additional elementary school campuses this year. Other popular after school classes included seasonal food exploration, science, LEGO engineering, musical theater and gymnastics.
Registration is open for LAEF’s 2020 Spring After School program, offering many of the popular classes enjoyed in the Fall curriculum as well as classes particularly suited to Springtime, including Flag Football, Baseball, Golf and “Our Friends in the Sea” Microbiology!
LAEF is able to enrich the learning experience of even more students this Spring by continuing to offer tuition scholarships, thanks to the support of grant donors like Run Seal Beach, the Roosters of Orange County and the Miller Foundation.
