Welcome to The Annex!
E-Learning Support for Active, Responsible Kids
We know kids! IVGA has been serving the children of the Illinois Valley for 14 years. We know that movement activates learning.
When it comes to education, parents are being faced with incredibly difficult decisions right now. IVGA Annex can support parents and their children by providing a safe, comfortable environment to learn while their parents are working.
Students will have plenty of space to spread out. We also believe in being comfortable! We have couches and cozy chairs, rugs, pillows, and even tents. We also have a few tables and chairs scattered throughout for those that need a more traditional space. Students will not be required to wear masks when physically distanced or with parent permission.
IVGA Annex is a self-guided learning environment for intrinsically motivated students who are ready to learn!
Students will follow their district’s e-learning curriculum or their parent's chosen homeschool curriculum. Parents will manage their child’s curricular selection and IVGA Annex staff will provide the support system and oversight during the day to get things done! We will be there to help keep students on track, help them get online for Zoom or Google Meets sessions, as well as, answer questions to help them through their assigned lessons.
Everyone needs a break! IVGA Annex will be stocked with activities for students to enjoy when not working on school work. From art supplies and puzzles to games and toys, students will be able to find something fun to keep them busy until it’s time to go home. There might even be opportunity on some days to go over to the gymnastics side and play (depending on gym schedule).
The Annex is not able to provide food at this time. Students may each lunch at home or bring a sack lunch to eat at the center. Student may also bring snacks.
Students will also need to supply their own device to access remote learning lessons. Charging stations will be provided.
