At the Elementary and Middle School Campus, the Afterschool Program is designed to provide a safe, nurturing, and fun environment for the children to end their school day. MFS students work very hard through out the day, so the focus in Afterschool is on productive social playtime.
Students have many play options, from art projects to sand box play, to sports, gardening, and solitary reading time. Activities are almost always student-initiated and optional.
Afterschool care can be purchased in advance for a low annual rate, or used on an hourly, drop-in basis with no signup required.
Afterschool is open to all students from 3:00pm – 6:00pm, Monday-Friday. The school closes at 6:00pm, so all children must be picked up by this time.
On Mondays, Homework Club meets from 4:30pm – 5:30pm. During Homework club, students can get a head start on their weekly homework assignments. Afterschool teachers can provide support to the students as needed.
Numerous other afterschool enrichment programs are also available throughout the year for an additional fee. The class lineup changes throughout the year, offering children the opportunity to participate in such activities as art, cooking, chess, Spanish, science, martial arts, and sports.
