The 4-H Afterschool program at the Cochrane-Fountain City School welcomed students back on the first day of school, August 27. While the reopening plan allows for limited capacity, two separate pods of elementary students enjoyed returning to 4-H Afterschool. Students and staff are following physical distancing and face covering requirements set by the school and the University during the COVID-19 pandemic. The 4-H Afterschool staff includes Jacob Halper, a UW-Madison Division of Extension Buffalo County student employee, and Brooke Allemann and Erika Meyer, both C-FC Seniors who have been with 4-H Afterschool for multiple years.
4-H Afterschool is looking forward to providing homework help and academic enrichment activities for young people as in previous years, even if the design and interaction will be different in 2020. Youth will have the opportunity to engage in hands-on STEM experiences, social-emotional learning activities and service-learning experiences that enable 4-H members to give back to their community during the 2020-2021 school year.
