Celebrating 10 years of STARS at Westside!

Last week the STARS Afterschool Program at Westside Christian Community wrapped up for the year, marking 10 full years of serving Snyder Park Elementary kids through STARS. Born out of hearts full of love for God and for neighborhood kids, STARS started in the fall of 2003, and has served hundreds of children with dozens of volunteers every Tuesday and Thursday over the past 10 years. Here are a few photo highlights:

10 years of a safe place. 10 years of homework help and reading clubs. 10 years of crafts, games, and fun. 10 years of ping-pong. 10 years of love.

Did you know that in 2013, 100% of STARS students kept a C average or better, and that 100% of STARS parents said STARS helped their student be more respectful? Thank YOU for your support that makes STARS possible!

  1. I think my 14 yr old son and I would be available on Tuesdays. I know Beth Saba from ” back awhile “. My passions are reading and art, as far as ‘extras’ to ‘teach’. How about getting the therapy dogs to come over there and have the kids read to them. My 9 year old has done this at the downtown library. I’m sure the library would give you their phone number.
