EAST LIVERPOOL – East Liverpool City School (ELO) has launched an after school program called ELO Potter Brainery for third and fourth year students in LaCroft and North.

The programs, which include a variety of academic and physical activities, are made possible by a $196,000 grant to the Ohio 21st Century Community Learning Center.

Each day, students have a physical education class that includes Zumba, yoga, or a RAM fitness program, as well as an art or education activity, depending on the day.

Hernandez noted that several other area schools have tried similar programs, but this is a first for ELO Community Schools.

"It's basically helping to reduce learning loss from COVID, " Hernandez said. "Furthermore, we found that school is the safest place for many of these children. So the longer they stay in school, the better. They get dinner and three hours of homework help and enrichment.

This program can accept up to 50 students on a first-come, first-served basis. There are currently three places available.

Students must attend 60% of the program. Participants who do not attend 60% or participants with behavioral problems will be removed from the program.

The students were just starting to learn Spanish, which was taught to them by their high school Spanish teacher.

Galanis noted that all of this is covered by the grant.

The grant is for five years, with the program running from October to April each year with a summer component.
