PreK students are picked up directly from their classrooms by the afterschool staff and escorted to their home base. Their daily routine includes snack, creative movement, story-telling, literacy-based games, songs, art projects, crafts and free play. PreK students also participate in some of the K-1 workshops [see K-1 Activities Schedule below]. Activities are managed by the group’s supervisor and tailored to the personality and preferences of the students enrolled in the program. All activities are included in the Semester Tuition except tennis classes.

2-5 AFTERSCHOOL PROGRAM – 2-5 Fall’17 Schedule of Activities
At the end of the school day, 2-5 graders walk downstairs with their teacher to the dismissal area. From the Auditorium and Gymeteria they are asked to join their afterschool home base. The daily routine for these students includes attendance, snack, recreation, homework, team sports and enrichment classes in multiple specialties. During registration, 2-5 graders are asked to select two activities, one per period. Class descriptions are available under Enrichment above.
SELECTION OF CLASSES *
During the first two weeks of each semester, students are encouraged to try-out different classes and workshops and allowed to adjust their Activities Schedule. This policy supports our pedagogical objectives, namely, ensure that children attending our program are exposed to multiple disciplines. Requests for class changes will be processed by our office provided the request is emailed during the first two weeks of the semester and there are slots available. Students who wish to make schedule changes after the second Friday of the semester should speak directly with their afterschool supervisor. Please do not email requests for class changes after the second Friday of the semester. Thank you.
* If any of your child’s preferred class(es) are full when you register, please complete the Wait List (under this Tab) and we will contact you if a slot opens up.
Teacher Notification ** VERY IMPORTANT **
Don’t forget to inform your child’s teacher that s/he will attend the program. School teachers cannot release children unless they have been notified in advance by the parent/guardian.
For safety reasons, we cannot accept children without pre-registration. Never send your child to the Afterschool Program unless s/he has been registered in advance. Failure to comply with this requirement may result in the suspension of afterschool services. Thank you for your understanding.
