Before and After School Programs


The PTA proudly supports a variety of before and after school enrichment opportunities for your child.  

Students participating in any before/after school class are asked to maintain the same behavior standards expected during the regular school day. By registering your child for an enrichment class you are agreeing to the following Code of Conduct Agreement. 

CHESS

Come back for another fun filled session of chess! Learn pins, forks, double attacks and checkmating moves!  Learn bughouse (team chess) and play for trophies in the school championship!

CODING

Each child will become a maker of technology rather than just a consumer of technology.  By incorporating interpersonal play with screen time each child develops his or her ability to think creatively, work collaboratively and reason systematically -- skills useful throughout all of their lives!

GLOBAL LANGUAGE LAB

The Global Language Lab offers foreign language classes in District 34. Giving your child the opportunity to kick-start the learning of a foreign language, will not only open the window for future language learning, but will also provide your student with a look into other cultures, and improve overall learning in school. Research have shown that students that consistently took language in elementary do better on ACT scores than non-language learners.

Code of Conduct Agreement

·      Students participating in before/afterschool programs are expected to observe the same code of conduct as during the regular school day. Infractions will result in warning, a call home, and may ultimately result in dismissal from a program without a refund.  For more information on school conduct expectations please review the District 34 Handbook

·      Students are only considered to be enrolled in a program when the registration has been received by the deadline and a confirmation email or call has been sent to parents. If you have submitted a registration and not received confirmation you must contact the program director and cannot assume your child is enrolled.

·       You must send a note to your child’s teacher, on the first day of class, stating that your child is enrolled in an afterschool program. 

·      Attendance is always taken at the beginning of every class/program day. So that all children are accounted for, you will need to give advance notice if your child will be absent. If you know ahead of time, you can send a note with your child prior to the expected absence. If that is not possible, please contact your program director. 

·      If your child is absent from our program, and the program director has not received notice, you will be called immediately to let you know your child did not show up for class. Repeated failure to communicate absences may be cause for dismissal from a program without a refund.

·      For morning activities, the program director will meet students at the designated door of the school and lead the students into the classroom for their activities. Students who arrive later will enter the building through the office, check in, and then be allowed to join the activity.

·      At the end of the day for after school programs, the instructor will escort the entire class to the designated door of the building for dismissal.   

·       The program director will need to verify that the child is leaving with the parent or an approved adult.  If someone else will be picking your child up, you must send prior written approval. 

·       If a student is not picked up within 10 minutes of the class end time, the student will be transferred to the office and a $20 fee will be assessed. Consistently late pickups may result in a student being dismissed from the program.

·       Parents will not be able to enter the building if the school office is closed to pick up their children.  

·      If a child needs to be picked up early, the program director must be contacted ahead of time. If a situation arises where advance notice is not possible, please call you program director.
