Lights On Afterschool!


Governor Branstad proclaimed September 15th "Lights on Afterschool Day" in Iowa. The event celebrates and raises awareness of the importance of afterschool programs!

The official national website has information and ideas for activities. Check out this downloadable light bulb to decorate. You can display finished artwork at your site. Or send it to your government representatives to shine the light on how important it is to extend learning into afterschool hours.

If you want to register an event, the Afterschool Alliance will send you 10 free Lights on Afterschool posters. Let the Iowa Afterschool Alliance know how you're lighting up afterschool, and how they can support you in doing so by emailing Jillsa Aringdale!
