After School Activities 

Each day after school students will have a variety of activities to choose from. Based on student interest, these activities will change several times throughout the year. We enjoy our snack as a whole group each day and then break off into smaller groups for focused games and projects. Students always have opportunities for outdoor play, and creating their own planned after school activities.
