Grant Adventure Club meets at Ulysses S. Grant Elementary School, which is located at 10 E. Broadway. The maximum enrollment at Grant Adventure Club is 60 in the morning session and 60 children in the afternoon. Currently, in addition to the Site Facilitator, there are 6 University of Missouri college students employed as Site Assistants at this site. Many of these students are Education majors, or in a related field.
Grant Adventure Club meets in the school's cafeteria/gym. All of our activities take place in the multipurpose room. We also have daily access to the playground which consists of a large blacktop area complete with basketball hoops, large playground equipment area, and 2 soccer fields.
In the mornings, a parent or an authorized adult must initial the students in on a sign-in sheet. The sheets, printed in weekly increments, have columns for the student's arrival time and for the the initials of the person bringing the student to Adventure Club. A Site Facilitator or Site Assistant will initial in the student in the afternoon; a parent or other authorized adult must initial them out in the afternoon, noting the time that they departed. The sign-in/out sheets are located at the Parent Board, kept on the stage.
We also use a "Where am I?" pocket charts to keep track of the students. The pocket chart has 4 categories: Playground, Cafeteria, Gym, and Home. It is the students' responsibility to change their own name tag when they arrive in the morning and afternoons and when they decide to leave one area for another. They must also inform a staff member when they leave one area for another; we utilize walkie-talkies so that we may communicate with one another and ensure a student's arrival from one area to another.Grant Adventure Club is a fun, safe environment for all children enrolled. We offer a variety of activities for all children to participate in. Children also have the opportunity to get to know many other children enrolled in the program. Often, their best friends can be found in Adventure Club. Children and staff have a great time at Grant Adventure Club!!
