TEAM Connections Afterschool Program

RES Summer Camp

In November of 2002, Tennesseeans voted to create a state lottery. The General Assembly established that profits from the lottery go towards specific educational programs: college scholarships, early childhood programs and afterschool programs. Legislation specifics that 100% of UNCLAIMED prize winnings be used for afterschool grants.

In 2018-2019, Bledsoe County is completing our eighth year in offering an elementary afterschool program at all 3 elementary schools: Pikeville Elementary, Rigsby Elementary, and Wheeler Elementary. This funding of $120,000 provides an afterschool program designed to provide high academic expectations, positive behavior changes, combat absenteeism, and engage parents of all participants. It annually operates 7:15-7:45 AM Monday - Wednesday and 3:00-6:00 PM Monday - Thursday. If your child would like to know more about the program or participate in it next year, please contact your child's school or visit the LEAD teacher for your program to get an application.
