Important Information & Links
What is a Multi-Purpose Drop-In Program?
*This program makes activities from more than one category under the Bureau of Early Childhood Services Policy Statements. Our multi-purpose categories are "classes" with the purpose of academically oriented activities designed to supplement academic activity and sports. The intent of our "sports" category is to allow structured free play in an athletic setting. This program is not a SACC program. *
Can everyone attend the program?
Students PK3-8th grade can utilize our program.

What is offered during the program?
Students will arrive to the program, enjoy a snack, and then participate in academic time. Any child who has homework will have a quiet opportunity to complete it.
Each week we follow a different theme. Our themes includes a letter, creature, historical figure, book, and a country. We have our managers plan art, science, and hands on activities to go along with these themes.
Groups of students will rotate through each activity until all students are picked up.
When we have access to it we utilize the gym and outdoor play space as well.

After school begins at dismissal each day. We are available until 6:00 pm each day. A peanut/tree nut-free snack is included each day.
Camp days are available from 7:00am-6:00pm.
A half day is considered 7:00am-12:45pm.

Should I sign up for the program if I am not in need?
Yes!! We encourage everyone to sign up for the after-school program. On the off chance that you can not make it to school on time, your child (ren) is ALWAYS welcome to the program. This way we have their emergency and medical information on file.
You are never charged if you do not use the program.
We suggest signing up for the lunch program as well, you never know when lunch will be left on the counter!
