The Mission of SK2 (Smart Kids Strong Kids) is to strengthen families by providing an environment of fun and learning so that every child, with the help of their families and the Dayton Kroc Community, will successfully complete their school year.
An extension of training for parents and children alike:
Creating a culture of curiosity through to a variety of topics and activities which will stimulate interest in learning. Educating parents on a variety of topics so that they can better assist their children in school. Partnering with parents in their children’s education by holding regular reviews of each child’s progress. Ensuring that every child is progressing in education so that none are ever held back.
Recognizing the decline of health among our nation’s children, we are determined to strengthen families by:
Providing healthy, homemade meals each day, which will add to their overall healthy nutrition. Creating healthy options for eating by offering a salad bar at every meal. Educating our families about healthy nutrition.
Strengthening families by providing an environment for bringing parents and their children together at the close of each day so that we may:
Provide an update to parents on their children’s progress. Provide a meal to them around the family table. Provide educational materials & classes so that parents may better assist their children with their education. Provide physical & recreational activities designed for families & their children.
Our partner schools are Dayton Public Schools & Our Lady of the Rosary School. Students from these schools have the opportunity to arrange transportation to the Dayton Kroc Center.
Parents are responsible for ensuring their child's transportation has been arranged. The Dayton Kroc Center is not responsible for the transportation of program participants.
Receive homework help & support and participate in a variety of activities throughout the week!
