Ongoing Advisory Groups
Twilight program director Lisa Utz will be hosting ongoing advisory group meetings to update our community on programs, and to gather input and feedback for program development and improvement.
We would love to hear from all of you- parents and families, students, teachers, community members and businesses. We need all of your voices to help us to continue to provide the best programs possible.
The following dates and times have been scheduled for open forum meetings through the end of year:
May 31st and June 5th at 12 noon @ Siuslaw SD District Office
June 8th at 5:00 @ Siuslaw Elementary Library
June 13th at 4:00 @ Siuslaw SD District Office
Twilight starts right after school, and ends at 6:00 p.m. Class schedules vary at the middle and high schools, based on student preference and need. All sites run from Monday through Thursday, throughout the school year. We do follow the school holiday and vacation schedule, and school closure on weather days as well. If weather changes significantly at the end of the school day, our programs may need to close based on predictions for safety.
Academic tutoring and teaching will focus mostly on math and language arts, but students are welcome to bring any school work with which they need assistance. Twilight students in upper elementary, middle and high school will have access to on-line course work as needed to enhance skill development. There will be certified teachers, educational assistants, and volunteers working in each building to help students. A variety of enrichment programming is available at each site, including cultural activities, drama, art, "Nerd Squad", and Lego Robotics.
In the elementary school, Twilight will operate in conjunction with Indian Education and Lynn Anderson, the Indian Education Project Director, will serve as the Twilight Outreach Coordinator, so students can attend both programs.
