CARES After School Program

CARES stands for Children Are Really Extra Special. Our CARES after school program begins when the regular school day ends. Parents may register for the CARES program by downloading the PDF form below, filling it out and returning it to the school.

Children participating in CARES come to the cafeteria at the end of the regular school day to enjoy some free time with a snack. Then children are escorted to classrooms according to their grade for homework assistance. A teacher and group leaders are available to help the children in each class complete their work. At 4:00 pm, various activities are offered to students during the year, including, karate, art, physical fitness, technology, French, nutrition class, dance class and free play. Parents must pick up their children by 6:00 pm.
