Before & After School Care
Students can be dropped off as early as 6:45AM. We offer breakfast each morning and the computer lab is open to everyone until 7:30AM with a licensed teacher to help with homework. PreK students can be walked int o his/her classroom as early as 7:30AM. There is no additional cost for this service other than breakfast.
The after school program reflects our philosophy of the after school environment: it is a continuation of our students’ school day. We expect the same courtesies, responsibilities, and discipline that is expected during class times. We also realize that the students have been in class and at school all day, and by the time some of them get picked up to go home, they’ve been here a long time. So, we do make some allowances for this, yet expect the students to conduct themselves accordingly. Our hours are 3:00pm to 6:00pm.
We hope our web pages answer your questions about our before and after school support. If you have any additional questions, or would like to visit us, please feel free to do so. We’d be happy to show you around.
In our homework room, we provide students ample opportunity and an environment conducive to good study habits. Our homework room is monitored by a few of our classroom teachers. They do a fantastic job assisting those students who need a little more time in finishing their homework and motivating those needing a little extra help. In the homework room we have a couple of computers, one is connected to the Internet, and the students may use it while doing assigned work. If the students just need the use of a word processing program and printer they are welcome to use the computers for that as well. We encourage those students who have homework to do it while they are here, as we have many resources available to them. Moreover, by the time some of the students get home, have dinner and a little free time, it is often too late to be just getting started doing homework. We also realize this time is critical, because they may be involved in other activities later in the day.
Other Activities and Opportunities
We realize too that not all students have homework. For these students, we offer a wide variety of organized activities.
