Lighthouse Provides Homework Support & Sports Activities

The Lighthouse Program assists students with homework (45 minutes mandatory) and offers a variety of activities for the children. The activities include Tennis Training which culminates with a Tennis Tournament under the direction of the United States Tennis Association (USTA). This year Roosevelt Lighthouse Program won 1st Place and Blackham Lighthouse Program placed 4th during the final matches held on May 10th. Other activities provided are Lacrosse, Ice Skating (Wonderland of Ice), Ballroom Dancing (highlighted with an end of year show at Klein Memorial Auditorium), Swimming and Family Literacy Nights.

During Family Literacy Nights activities include Spelling Bees, “Turkey Bingo” (turkeys, plants and candy bars are given as prizes), Line Dancing, Father and Daughter dances, Mother and Son dances, Emergency Care Classes, and International Night, where the children dance and sing for their parents. Each Family Literacy Night ends with a hearty meal for the families, accompanied with music … such a wonderful way to end the night.
