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 fun for your child!  Students will meet in the gym and be provided a snack.  Minimum of 10 students.

Homework Club
Homework Club is an extra hour after school that offers additional support for students who benefit from a quiet, structured environment to complete their 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.

  • 2nd grade maximum of 10 students M/T/TH
  • 3rd grade maximum of 13 students M/TH (maximum of 26 students on Tuesdays)

The remaining time of the club will provide students time to enjoy an assortment of literacy games. Students will work and play together while reading skills are reviewed and applied in a supportive environment. Students are encouraged to bring an afternoon snack and their neighborhood library card.  Maximum of 10 students.
