After School Program - ASES

ASES - Wrangler Zone
After School Education and Safety

 Once again Hook Jr. High will participate in the After School Education and Safety Grant.

The ASES program will begin on the first day of school and will remain open every regular school day there after, unless otherwise notified.

Please read the following information carefully, as there have been a few changes to the program. 

ASES is a place for 7th and 8th grade students to participate in learning opportunities, have fun, and develop self-confidence in a safe environment.  We want to help students do better in school, learn to cooperate with others and fully enjoy their days here at Hook Junior High School.



ENROLLMENT:  Enrollment is open to both 7th and 8th grade students, limited to 55 students and based on the needs of the students.   Students who register after program capacity is reached will be placed on a waiting list.  Students will select enrichment classes upon enrollment.  Enrichment activities may include:

Sports, Basketball, Cooking, Drama, Coding/Computers, “Got Game”, “Bead It”, Karaoke "Sing-A-Long", Science Club, Khan Academy/Exploratory, "Math-Stars", Reading Club.

SNACKS:  Students will be provided a nutritional supper while attending the ASES program.

HOMEWORK: Students will have an opportunity to work on assigned homework. 

ASES does not guarantee that all homework will be completed, so you will still need to check your child’s work daily.

ATTENDANCE:  Regular attendance is important. 

  • Students are required to attend Monday – Friday from 3:46 – 6:46 p.m.
  • On minimum day Wednesday, the program will run from 2:52 – 6:00 p.m.
  • Students who have three (3) unexcused absences or are picked up early on a regular basis (more than 2 days a month, every week on the same day, etc…), will be asked to leave the program to make room for students on the waiting list.Students may attend ASES ONLY when they attend school.
  • Students are expected to stay for the entire program, every day.
  • Excused absences include illness, occasional appointments (doctor, dentist, etc…), and court mandated appointments.

STUDENT PICK-UP:   Your child MUST be picked-up PROMPTLY at the end of the program

(6:46 p.m. or  6:00 p.m on Wednesdays). 

If your child has not been picked-up within 10 minutes after dismissal, program staff will try to contact you and those individuals designated as emergency contacts.  If no one is available to pick the child up, program staff will contact law enforcement to take responsibility for the child.  

Late pick-up may result in a child being dropped from ASES.

DISCIPLINE:  Participation in ASES is a PRIVILEGE.  A child must keep program agreements: 

Be Safe, Be Respectful, Be Responsible and Have Fun.  Disruptive or disrespectful behavior toward other students or program staff is reason for dismissal.  Acts of violence toward another person will not be tolerated.  We encourage you to discuss concerns about your child’s behavior with Mr. Cerna or Mr. McDole.

TRANSPORTATION: * Busing needs will be determined in the first few weeks.

If busing becomes unavailable, students will need to make arrangements to either walk home or be promptly picked-up by a parent or guardian.

PARENTAL SUPPORT:  Though the ASES staff is committed and qualified, your support is needed to make ASES the best it can be. We believe that you are the most important partner in our program’s success.

We are now accepting applications for the 2019 – 2020 school year. 

If you are interested in having your child participate in ASES, agreeing that you and your child have read and understand all of the above information, please complete the ASES application and return it to the Hook Jr. High School front office.
