ONE:thirty at Kent Covenant Church
Starting this fall, ONE:thirty is our new after school program on Wednesday afternoons, 1:30-3:30, specifically targeting a need within the Meridian Middle School student body. We are hoping to meet their need by offering students a safe place to be and to learn during their early release Wednesday's from Kent School District. While this program has been built to meet the needs of Meridian students, all Kent Covenant Middle School students (7th-8th graders regardless of which school they attend) are encouraged to participate to create community, friendship and involvement.
We will start with free-play for students to have fun together and release energy. We will then create quiet time and space for students to get homework started with volunteer mentors. After grabbing a snack, we will end with "skills time" where students can choose from a selection of skills they may want to learn (some preliminary thoughts are cooking, knitting, sewing, woodworking, music, and bike maintenance).
If you are a KCC high school student or adult who would like to come alongside this important outreach program to serve with passion and commitment, please contact Pastor Noah.
