The KidsZone After School Program, FBHonors program and Summer Program at Turie T. Small Elementary School services 120 students, Monday - Friday in the after-school program and 60 students, Monday - Thursday in the seven-week summer program. Meals are provided to the students daily.
KidsZone provides academic lessons in Reading, Math, and Science. To complement academics and nurture the whole student, KidsZone offers music, art, technology education, mentoring, organized sports, and STEM. Students in the program are also afforded the opportunity to attend several field trips throughout the school year and summer. Some recent field trips included the Brevard Zoo, a Mainland High School football game, a holiday concert presented by the Daytona Beach College orchestra, an Embry Riddle Aeronautical Univeristy basketball game, and a trip to the Orlando Science Center.
Each month, parents attend meetings to gain knowledge on a variety of topics. This school year, we have had a represntative from the University of Florida speak about nutrition, a librarian discuss the free services available to students and families at the local public library, our Academic Coach informed parents of the math and science standards for students, and our guidance counselor and parent liaison discussed the effect of absences and tardiness on academics.
In the summer of 2019, our program was given the opportunity to provide culinary education to sixty students. Students studied the food groups and shopped for ingredients using weekly sales ads and a budget. At the end of each week, students were able to prepare, cook, and enjoy a meal. To close out the summer, students attended a culinary tour at the Mori Hosseini Hospitality Center at Daytona State Collete. Students were able to meet Chef Costa and see the beverage center, classrooms, kitchens, and see a knife demonstration while enjoying a snack.
