The Hawk Hangout Program is a community enrichment program for Aim High School families. Hawk Hangouts are hosted at the school and provide an opportunity for students and parents to make connections with fellow Aim families and to socialize in a safe and comfortable environment. Supervised by Aim High faculty and staff, students will be able to enjoy a snack-and-socialize session, choose from structured activity options, and strengthen relationships and communication skills. In addition, parents will have the opportunity to network with each other and build supportive connections while their student(s) are enjoying their own activities.
The Hawk Hangout Program aims to set a foundation of inclusion and create a sense of community for Aim High families. Students can connect with peers and develop friendships while parents can share resources and offer support and guidance.
Agenda and Description:
5:00-5:30 Snack-and-socialize session
A variety of drinks and snacks will be available for students and parents to enjoy. This is also an opportunity for socializing and making connections.
5:30-7:00 Interactive games/activities and closing
Two supervised activities will be available for students to participate in. The gym will have more physically active games, such as cornhole or smash it. The lunch room will have board games and/or interactive video games. If needed, the library could hold a third activity involving a craft or creative exercise. During this time, parents can socialize separately, allowing their students the freedom to bond with their peers.
