Leisure Department @ City Commons Building
Lights On Afterschool is the only nationwide celebration of everything afterschool programs do for students, families and communities across the country. It is an event not only for recognizing the extraordinary value of these programs, but also for putting a spotlight on the need for more funding—for every child who gets to participate in an afterschool program, there are two waiting to get in.
St George City's Leisure Services Department runs afterschool programs for the students at Heritage Elementary, Sandstone Elementary and Sunset Elementary. Many of our participants view our afterschool program was a safe environment option for working parents during the hours of 3:30-6:00 pm.
Did you know that as of October 2020;
* There are 39,210 students enrolled in Pre-K thru 12th grade in the Washington County School District

This year the Lights On Afterschool event will be held on Monday, October 26 at the Tonaquint Nature Center from 5:00-7:00pm
We will be combining this event with our annual Fall Festival.
