Welcome to ARC, a virtual social gathering for students who are supported by APSEA. Led by Jennifer Fancy and Jennie Bovard, APSEA Mentors for Students who are blind or visually impaired, ARC provides opportunity for students to meet and get to know others who are Blind or visually impaired.  ARC is hosted using the Zoom Health Platform and is designed so that students can connect with their peers in a fun and relaxed online environment, facilitated by the Mentors. ARC is a place to play games, share stories, and meet new people. As people with lived experience, Jennifer and Jennie are partially sighted and understand the importance of the social connections and experiences that participating in recreational clubs can provide.

There are no registration deadlines. Students are welcome to sign up at any time throughout the year and can join in the weekly sessions as often as their schedules permit.
ARC is organized based on grade ranges. 

Note: For grades 4-6 and 7-9, the above-listed lunch time hours are a guideline. When students enroll, we will check with you regarding the timing of each student’s lunch hour. Based on the responses received, the time might be adjusted/expanded to best accommodate student’s participation.  Students will be able to sign in and take part flexibly during their lunch break; they are welcome to have their lunch whilst participating and are not required to stay for the full time.  Once students are signed up for ARC, they are welcome to take part as often as they are available for the entire school year.
