Fun Zone
Join Coach Rosen for a fun-filled semester of Fun Zone!  This after school program provides wonderful opportunities for enrichment and recreation.  Students learn team-building and kinesthetic skills through a variety of games including sports and creative movement.  This program will offer lots of exercise and enjoyment for your child!  Students will meet in the gym and be provided with a snack.  Minimum of 10 students, maximum of 20 students.

Homework Club
Homework Club is an extra hour after school which offers additional support for students who benefit from a quiet, structured environment to complete homework. Do the distractions from siblings, pets, and television make it difficult for your child to get his or her work done? If so, this is the perfect club to join. Your child can bring a snack and get right to work after school, allowing him or her to truly relax and unwind when he/she gets home. Teachers will be in the room to help get kids started and answer questions as needed.  Please note this is not tutoring, but rather an opportunity for your child to have a teacher be present to guide, assist and explain homework for your student.
