Recently Trinity Lutheran Church in Cherokee started an after school program for all second, third, and fourth graders.
Children who participate do not need to be members of the church. There is no charge and is held at the church located at 230 N. Roosevelt Ave. from 3:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Wednesdays. If school dismisses early, the program will not be held that day.
The school children can ride the school bus down Roosevelt Avenue to the Early Childhood Learning Center bus stop where they will be met and escorted to the church, or parents can choose to bring them to the church. If they ride the bus, the parent needs to call the school to give permission to ride.
The program is divided in to half-hour segments: half-hour doing their homework with a teacher, and are served a snack. They will also do a half-hour Bible activity; then finish with activity time.
There is also a form for parents or guardians to fill out for the program with emergency information and phone numbers. Parents are asked to pick up their child at 5 p.m. at the church.
They welcome any adult to help with the program. If you have any questions, please call the church and ask for Matt Eiden or Barb Pruett.
