The Cheatham County School District will continue to offer its successful Cheatham Achievers after-school program during the 2018-2019 school year.

The district offers the program in the three middle schools through a 21st Century Community Learning Center grant. 

In 2014, the district was awarded an initial three-year, $600,000 grant to implement the program at Cheatham, Harpeth and Sycamore middle schools.

The district has been notified that it has received a grant extension of $202,000 to continue the program in the new school year.

Emily Staggs, who supervises the program, said, “We are looking forward to another productive and exciting year with this great program. The district has enjoyed much success since we started the program, and many students have benefitted from the academic, artistic and cultural enrichment activities that are provided.”

The program offers opportunities for students to explore, develop and strengthen their academic skills.

In addition, students participate in art, music and recreation programs, character education programs and field trips to reinforce and complement the regular academic program. Guest speakers are also invited to speak to the students on a wide range of subjects.

Students receive a daily snack and are provided with transportation home each day. 

Applications for the program will be available at the middle school open houses.

This year’s program will begin on Monday, Sept. 24. The times are from 3-5:30 p.m. each day school is in session.
