Adopt-A-School and Community Partnerships

 

Field Club Elementary is fortunate to be associated with a number of community and business organizations. These groups work together with the school to provide our students (and staff) with exciting activities and programs they might not have the opportunity to experience.

OMAHA THEATER FOR YOUNG PEOPLE

Field Club is partnered with the Rose Performing Arts in the "Every Single Child!" program. This program offers a wide variety of exciting arts programming including theater and dance workshops as well as live productions presented either at Field Club or at The Rose. Every grade level is involved. Each grade level is given two performance options. Field Club's participation in this program is sponsored by the Omaha Schools Foundation.

Partnership 4 Kids
Partnership 4 Kids is a local non-profit agency dedicated to helping Omaha Public Schools students succeed! Our mission at Partnership 4 Kids is to partner with our community and guide our youth toward academic success from kindergarten to careers through goal setting, mentoring, career exploration and college access programs.

Our Student Programs:

Partnership 4 Kids has an elementary school program that takes place during the school day and an after-school program for middle and high school students.

All Field Club students automatically participate in P4K's elementary program, which focuses on setting and achieving individual student goals. Students team up with community volunteers called goal buddies in an effort to achieve quarterly goals in reading, math, and life skills. Students who reach their quarterly goals are recognized at school wide celebrations.

Starting in 7th grade, students may apply to be in the P4K after-school program. Students in the P4K after-school program meet twice a month with caring adult mentors and P4K staff members. As a group, the students and mentors discuss issues facing teens such as peer pressure, drug and alcohol awareness, and how to be a positive leader. Other classroom activities and field trips focus on career exploration, community service projects, college preparation, time-management and study skills. Transportation for meetings and events is available.

P4K student participants can even earn college scholarships! Those students who meet all program requirements and continue to participate in Partnership 4 Kids through high school graduation may be eligible to receive tuition assistance for college or trade school through the agency's scholarship fund.
