This spring, we launched one of our new Resident Life Enhancement programs – a free, on-site learning center – at Emerald Shores Apartments. The Learning Center is staffed by trained educators from 2:30 p.m. – 6:00 p.m., Monday through Friday and is available to residents 0 – 18 years of age. Open year-round, the Learning Center ensures children keep up (and some catch up) their academic skills throughout the summer, which gives students a tremendous opportunity to be successful in school.
At the Learning Center, students receive homework assistance, subject-specific tutoring based on individual needs, and report card follow-up. By taking advantage of the resources available at the Learning Center, students are able to complete their homework during their Learning Center time, which gives families more quality time at home. And once each child’s daily homework is completed, he/she receives additional emphasis in areas where he/she is challenged. Parents, schools, and teachers are notified of students’ participation in the Learning Center to encourage full-circle support and commitment.
Since opening the Learning Center at Emerald Shores on February 14, 2011, nearly 50 students have registered. And as of the end of 2010-2011 school year, all students enrolled in the Learning Center had improved their scores by at least one letter grade.
