More than 75% of the student body is involved in Community School's After School Program! Three options are available offering childcare, homework help and exciting classes.
This after care program is offered for all grades. Extended Day strives to provide a supportive, homelike environment for children. Outdoor games, creative play, crafts, cooking and quiet time for reading and/or homework are scheduled for the children. A daily snack is provided.
The hours are from the end of school until 6:00 p.m. Extended Day meets during faculty professional days and conference days, as well as most school holidays. The semester cost is $740 (one or two days per week), $1095 (three or more days per week). There is also a $50 daily drop in fee, and an $100 fee for All-Day Extended - unless already enrolled full-time.
Homework Club is designed to assist 3rd - 6th grade students in the management and completion of homework and long-term assignments. It is not meant to be a tutoring class, but rather an opportunity for students to practice and master time management and organizational skills. Students meet with experienced homework advisors to discuss assignments, organize materials, and establish long- and short-term goals. A snack will be offered each day during an outside break of approximately 15-20 minutes, around 4:00 p.m. Homework Club meets Monday through Thursday; two days minimum enrollment is required. The semester cost is $740 (one or two days per week) or $1095 (three or four days per week). Extended Day can be added at a cost of $80 for one or two days or $135 for three or more.
Mini classes covering a wide range of topics are offered to students in JK through Sixth Grade. Topics will offer children an opportunity to explore exciting and enticing academic and nonacademic areas. Some recent examples include chess, tennis, LEGO robotics, Little Medical School, soccer, and hip-hop. Classes are often taught by Community School teachers, although local organizations such as COCA and St. Louis Science Center also regularly teach. The price is $190 per class.
