For over three decades, Bay Area Community Resources After School Programs have had the privilege of serving the diverse communities of the Bay Area. They have done so by promoting the healthy development of individuals, families and communities through direct services, volunteerism, and partnering with the San Francisco Bay Area. The BACR family is a tight knit group, made up of passionate and creative individuals who have devoted themselves to the betterment of the lives of the children we serve. This blog was created to appreciate and showcase the achievements of our outstanding staff and their programs. Please join us on our journey of documenting the lives of the everyday heroes that serve in our programs.

Washington Elementary School

Coordinator: Kalayla Roark

Sir Isaac Newton is a scientist, astronomer, philosopher and mathematician. For our stem challenge this week at Washington Elementary, we focused on one of his many great inventions known as “Newton’s Cradle”, or to some “The Ball Clicker”. Here is some of our work. 


Nystrom Elementary School

Coordinator: Alison Santos

Nystrom ELP or L.I.T (learning intentionally together)  ELP is really proud of our mentorship through reading program.  Every week our students from 4th 5th and 6th grade pair up with our students from 3rd,  2nd and 1st grades.  Students choose a book from our library and prepare a mini-discussion lesson where they discuss and then share back their stories during big group. The students really enjoy it and its an awesome way to get them to share, plan and reflect.
