21st Century Community Learning Program
The Pemberton Township Schools Nita M. Lowey 21st Century Program provides high-quality afterschool programs to 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students at Busansky and Denbo-Crichton Schools FREE of CHARGE. We will operate REMOTELY every day, after normal school hours, from 3:20-6:00 pm. The 21st Century staff members create activities that coincide with what students are learning in school, and combine cross-content information and 21st Century skills acquisition through project-based learning opportunities. In an enjoyable, kid-centered setting, the program provides opportunities for experiential learning, problem solving, self-direction, creativity, exploration, and expression. The activities engage students in learning and even help prevent “summer learning loss” through a 4-week summer program. The Nita M. Lowey 21st Century Community Learning Centers (21st CCLC) are 100% federally funded under Title IV of the Every Student Succeeds Act, through the New Jersey Department of Education.
During normal onsite programming, daily snack and transportation are also provided.
We realize that this is a very challenging time for parents and students as it relates to REMOTE LEARNING and all of the new ways that families are having to adjust. We want you to know that the Pemberton Township Nita M. Lowey 21st Century Program is here to support you! Enrolled students will REMOTELY participate in engaging activities that will include interesting and interactive content. Students and parents are encouraged to enroll in the 21st Century program and use our platform as another Pemberton Township support and tool.
