H.E.A.R.T.S. (Helping Elementary Achievers Reach the Stars)
The HEARTS Afterschool Program is a provided by a State grant awarded to the Riverside Unified School District. The grant is very competitive, therefore participation in the program has strict attendance expectations. The program is paid for by the grant, so there is no charge to families.
Students in the HEARTS afterschool program attend from the dismissal of school until 6:00 p.m. each weekday. They participate in a variety of activities to help support their learning.
--STEM (Science Technology Engineering Math) activities
--Additionally, students may choose to earn several leadership roles within the program. Interested students sign-up for a variety of jobs, such as, running the HEARTS student store, being instructional assistants, running the check-out table, and tutoring. They may also have opportunities to teach small groups, read to younger students, and organize the game check-out system.
Unique to the Mt. View HEARTS program is a year of academic and enrichment activities that revolve around a yearly theme. Our theme this year is “iLearning…to Infinity and Beyond!” Students began the year learning about the brain and how learning takes place. Each month we will then investigate another “i” topic. Those monthly topics are: Intelligence, interaction, infrastructure, intergalactic, investigations, Internet, and imagination. Check out the photos to see learning in action!
