Karen Western Elementary School 

6224 H St., Ralston Public Schools 

January through May 2009: provided once a week enrichment activities from 1:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. for low-income after-school children; started with about 12 participants and ended with 50; students went on field trips, had guest presenters, put on a comedy club, did science experiments, went swimming and ice skating, and did crafts; field trips are always a kid favorite, and since low-income families often can't afford a field trip fee, underwriting trips for after-school programs is an important enrichment aid.
