St. Mark Youth Enrichment's mission is to provide innovative programs and services that cultivate the educational and social-emotional growth of youth and families. St. Mark offers quality educational programs that engage students through homework help, literacy activities, hands-on STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math, and Music) enrichment, physical literacy and much more. Students will also receive a healthy snack during program.
St. Mark before and after school programs will serve children enrolled at Dyersville Elementary, in grades Pre-K-4th. This is a Federal Title IV B program (21st Century Community Learning Centers). For this year, any child who attends this site, will attend the program this 2018-19 School Year at NO cost due to 21st Century grant funding. This decision is based on grant funds that St. Mark's have to help pay for the program this school year.
Before School ProgramThis program includes: homework help, computer time, literacy activities, games, and much more! Our goal with this program is to provide a safe place with caring adults to help students get a great start to the school day! The Before School Program takes place Monday through Friday starting at 6:30 am until the start of the breakfast program.
After School Program This program includes: a healthy snack, assists wi Monday through Friday, from the end of school until 5:30 pm, including scheduled early out days. Students may be picked up before the 5:30 time, but no later than 5:30.
St. Mark Youth Enrichment integrates social emotional learning throughout all programs. We also lead a variety of community initiatives, including "Apples for Students" through which we provide school supplies to more than 1,600 area students in need; and the Sponsor Angels program through which we provide warm winter clothing to students in need.
Family Engagement Events are held throughout the school year, offering our families an opportunity to connect with each other, our team, and community partners, while sharing a meal and participating in activities, field trips, or sponsored events. Building community and sharing helpful tips and resources for parents to promote education in the home is a key indicator of student success. Before your child(ren) can start, a parent/guardian must attend a parent information session to complete the enrollment process.
