• Twilight Overview

    The Twilight Learning Center (TLC) continues in operation this year.  This exciting after-school program is being offered through Siuslaw School District's federal grant funding under Title IVB.  Twilight is a team of staff, parents, and children who are dedicated to providing after school academic assistance, enrichment activities, and recreational experiences, in safe and productive environments, for children in grades K-12.  

    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.  

    Students will be given a USDA meal*, academic tutoring/teaching, and the opportunity to do fun activities.  There will be school buses to transport children home after the program. 

    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.

    Registration forms are available at your school or if you would like to have one mailed to you or have other questions, please contact Kama Wells at kwells@siuslaw.k12.or.us
