After School Program

Easterseals After School Program is FREE to qualifying families at Finland Elementary. Our students receive homework help, take part in physical fitness activities and enjoy a nutritious snack. This program is possible thanks to the partnership of Franklin County Commissioners and Franklin County Job and Family Services. The Franklin County Department of Job and Family Services (FCDJFS) partners with qualified organizations to operate beyond school youth programs in order to address the need for safe and constructive opportunities for Franklin County elementary school aged youth. Each day's routine is similar to a school schedule but in smaller time increments. STEM, reading, physical fitness, and nutrition activities are designed to make sure that the attendees of the program don't lose the progress they've made in school.
