BES After-school Program

The Berrien Elementary School’s After-school Program is in its 12th year and continues to grow while bringing new opportunities for its students. 

The main purpose of the After-school Program is to provide students with a safe environment while broadening their horizons with classes that they may not normally experience in their regular school day. The program helps students improve in their academics in a non-traditional way.

The Berrien Elementary and Berrien Primary were the first to receive a grant for an after-school program in Berrien County. With that being said the Elementary School received a new milestone, when they were awarded the Century Award from the Georgia Department of Education last year. This Award was given to BES in recognition of them being one of the top schools in the ten percentile in the state due to Georgia Milestone scores. 

The BES After-school Program meets Monday through Thursday from 3:30 pm – 6:30 pm for 100 days of the school year.  BES also provides students the opportunity to attend the summer camp for 30 days during the month of June. Students attending summer camp go from Monday through Friday from 8:00 to 2:00.

        The after school program has several individuals helping to make the program runs smoothly. The staff includes Mrs. Heather Nix, who is the director of the BES After-school program along with several teachers, paraprofessionals, and high school tutors.

As the after-school program grows Mrs. Nix would like to expand the enrichment activities to give students the opportunity to experience activities they wouldn’t normally get to participate in a regular school day. Overall, the BES After-school Program continues to be a success and continues to allow students the opportunity to learn new things.
