Homestead Enrichment for Youth (HEY)
Formerly the After School Enrichment program, Homestead Enrichment for Youth (HEY) received its new name due to the fact that it takes place before, as well as after, school.
In the past, the program has offered classes such as Math Club, Introduction to Spanish, Book Buddies, Become an Author, Math Games, Reading Games, Cheer Creations, Crafts, and even cooking classes. There are anywhere from 4-7 classes running at one time.
This teacher-run, fee-based program is offered twice a year over a six-week period with each class meeting once a week. The teachers who participate choose what class and grade level they would like to teach and are paid for the session and supplies. Therefore, the classes that are offered are dependent on the teachers and what they wish to teach. The enrollment limit is 15 children per class, however classes with fewer than 10 children enrolled may be subject to cancellation.
All children in grades 1-5 are eligible to participate in the HEY program.
