Learning Beyond the Bell Lewisville ES
What is LBB? Learning Beyond the Bell is a free after-school program in 5 high needs schools within LISD *1 hr. of Academics – ELAR, Math, and Science * 30 minutes of Homework assistance *1 hr. of Enrichment – Karate, Scouts, Rockets, etc
Mission: To offer a free, safe, enriching and supervised environment for Lewisville ISD students in grades 3-5, in which students develop academic competency and confidence, higher-level thinking skills and problem- solving, creativity, individual growth through hands-on experiences, peer interaction and positive adult relationships. Purpose: To provide after-school learning opportunities beyond the regular school day. The program focuses on helping children in high-need schools succeed academically through the use of scientifically-based extended learning time. LBB is a powerful program that enhances and complements the regular school day, rather than duplicating or imitating classroom instruction.

What we need from teachers 1.A list of 30 boys and 30 girls per grade level (so we have extra to choose from) who you want us to recruit to order of importance. 2.We need the list by Sept. 7 th at 9am. 3.Site Coordinators will then distribute enrollment packets to your students 4.Collect student applications and return to site coordinators
What we offer teachers Fewer students to tutor Spreadsheets of student progress on Kids College (and their user code and password) Progress on CenterStage w/ journal entries Increased student success in the classroom
Keys points If a student goes to a teacher tutoring session after school versus coming to our LBB academic session, we must have them back to us by 3:50pm. LBB students may be in UIL, Choir, and tutoring, but will not be able to participate in other school clubs. Academics will be in the beginning of the program this year. We will not be using campus staff. LBB staff includes UNT interns with content majors who are pursuing education minors.
