Special EventsTop of Page

Each year, the SERRF After School Program has three community-wide events:

SERRF ANNUAL "LIGHTS ON!" - THURSDAY, OCTOBER 24, 2019 AT ALL SERRF SITES Top of Page

"Celebrating 20 Years in Expanded Learning"

The 2019 SERRF Expanded Learning Program theme for “Light’s On!” is SERRF Journey – Celebrating 20 Years in Expanded Learning.  The SERRF community, consisting of students, families, staff, school affiliates and local partners will be participating in interactive activities spotlighting our focus areas and bringing awareness to the overall importance of keeping the “Lights On!” after school in Tehama County!

Since 1999, schools and copious community partners have joined together to implement high quality after school services tailored to the needs of the students, parents, and community members in a chronically depressed economy where many parents of children subsist on the bottom rung of California’s growing population of immigrants and the working poor.  SERRF provides 2000+ TK/Kindergarten through eighth grade students’ instruction in academics, enrichment and recreation in coordination with schools to support the Common Core Student Learning Standards.  SERRF serves all twenty-five Tehama County elementary and middle schools, including small, isolated rural school sites.

In collaboration with Tehama County Department of Education, our Lead Educational Agency, we are an official “No Excuses University” County Department of Education.  Through this affiliation, we have established high expectations for student achievement and promote the importance of college and career readiness for all Tehama County students!  So, join us in highlighting this and other engaging areas of after school programming that will be emphasized, on October 24, 2019, as we Celebrate 20 Years in Expanded Learning

SERRF Highlight ShowTop of Page

SERRF Highlight Show -All SERRF Expanded Learning Sites held at the Tehama District Fairgrounds. Each SERRF site has a demonstration and hands-on activities to showcase their site program. SERRF families and community members are invited and encouraged to attend.
 

UPDATE:
This is official notification that we are cancelling our Annual SERRF Highlight Show, scheduled for next Friday, March 20th. In light of the Governor's new recommendations to cancel gatherings with 250 or more people and also having a 6 feet social distance, we feel it would be best to cancel and reschedule the event.

Thank you for your understanding.  Although disappointing, this decision was made after much thought and careful consideration of the health and safety of our SERRF staff, students and families!
