The After School Program
Registration for the 2023-2024 school year will open on July 10, 2023.
The After School Program is a happy and healthy hangout for kids in Kindergarten through 5th grade. Depending on staffing, the Park District prepares for this program at Lake Arrowhead Elementary, Charles Hoofman Elementary (currently the CHE site has not met the minimum number of enrolled participants to open for the 2023-2024 school year), and Valley of Enchantment Elementary students with a portable classroom directly on campus.
The After School Program runs from school release until 5:30 pm excluding the time when children are in school. Depending on the services needed, the program provides After School Care, and for those kindergarteners who get out of school mid-day, Camp Kindergarten.
The program encourages self-awareness and community, and offers a veritable treasure trove of kid-amusement in a inviting and fun atmosphere. The After School program provides sports & outdoor activities, music, dance, drama, and visual arts. Recreational leaders assist with homework assignments, provide a nutritious snack, prepare social skill activities, fun projects and experiments. The After School program is a life-enriching program that takes place in a fun and safe recreational environment.
The annual registration fee is $60 and can be done online. You will receive confirmation of registration in your email. Prior to the start of school parents and guardians will receive a text message inviting them to download Brightwheel.
