After School Program (Grades Pre- K-6)
We are happy to announce that starting September of 2021 the After School Program will be back up and running. The goal of the After School Program is to provide a safe, nurturing, fun environment for your children who need care after the regular school day. On most days the program will include time for play, snack, homework help, and an activity for the day (arts & crafts, board games, etc.).
It will be in session Monday through Thursday on most days when school is in session and will be staffed by members of the faculty assisted by 6th, 7th & 8th Grade students. Children in Grades PreK-6 may attend. After school is not in session on 1/2 day dismissals.

This year Signup.com, will be used for After School volunteer sign-ups.
