Fall 2019 After School Programming

By |2019-09-04T12:21:56-06:00August 14th, 2018|Parent News|0 Comments

We are excited to announce our After School offerings for Fall, 2019!

The majority of our student-centered, experiential programming is included with your After School registration. Two of our partner organizations—Music Kids and Renaissance Knights Chess— require registration and fees separate from After School. You are not required to sign your child(ren) up for After School if they would like to participate in either of these two programs. If students remain in After School beyond the duration of the partner class, the After School daily drop-in rate will apply.

In addition to our new offerings, we are happy to continue providing Homework Help and the Middle School Lounge as part of our After School program.
