The purpose of the After School Education and Safety (ASES) Program is to create incentives for establishing locally-driven Expanded Learning programs, including after-school programs that partner with public schools and communities to provide academic and literacy support, and safe, constructive alternatives for youth. The ASES Program involves collaboration among parents, youth, and representatives from schools, governmental agencies, individuals from community-based organizations, and the private sector.
All Summerdale students in grades 1-5 qualify to participate in a free state-funded after-school program that provides a daily snack and supervised homework time, sports and games time, enrichment activities, special clubs, and family events. The program is offered every school day from 2:30 pm - 6:00 pm (M, T, W, F) and 1:00 pm - 6:00 pm (Thursdays).
*2020-2021 School Year: Due to COVID-19 the program is being run virtually. Please contact the school office for more information. 408-923-1960.
There is a mandatory parent meeting every May to go over the program, its requirements, and the application process. Please contact the school office or the school's newsletter for the date and time of this Parent Information meeting.
