About the Program
Flipside is a 21st Century Community Learning Center afterschool program available to students grades 5-8 at 4 schools in Marion and Taylor Counties: East Fairmont, West Fairmont, Mannington and Taylor County Middle Schools. Our program supports students by focusing on Social and Emotional Engagement, Academic Engagement, Healthy Living, and Positive Life Skills. We will do that by promoting:
- Flipside provides students with at least 30 minutes of targeted homework help daily, as well as weekly Literacy and Mathematics tutoring. Additionally, activities such as independent reading, book club, math centers, and a supplemental STEAM curriculum will be utilized to ensure an academically engaging program for participants.
- Flipside commits to providing an afterschool program that supports students in the making of smart choices about their health and wellness. Flipside provides daily wellness activities that focus on nutrition, physical exercise, and making healthy choices. Additionally, our programming aims to support students in their emotional development and will offer weekly activities that are intentionally designed to develop critical skills including self-awareness, self-control, and interpersonal skills.
- Flipside aims to create an engaging environment that students want to be a part of. By providing daily enrichment activities in the arts and sciences we can assure families that their students will enjoy their time at our program.
Flipside is also proud to serve as the host for our Flipside AmeriCorps program. Seventeen AmeriCorps members participate in a year of service to operate and enhance the Flipside program.
Flipside operates Monday-Friday from school dismissal until 6pm. The Office of Child Nutrition will provide students with a daily meal through the Afterschool Supper Program. Students will also be offered transportation home from the program to families that request it on their registration form.
