Welcome to the Fall 2018 MNS Afterschool Program! The Afterschool program is an exciting and unique place where your children experience new activities, develop self-confidence, improve their social skills and make lasting memories. I am excited about the upcoming term, which begins on Wednesday, September 12, 2018 and runs through Friday, January 25, 2019. We will be offering more than 50 courses for grades K-5 taught by MNS teachers and professional partners covering a variety of interests. The enthusiasm for the program by the MNS community has been overwhelming. I am happy to say that favorite classes and instructors from previous terms are returning and that we are adding new classes as well.
The activity portion of the program runs from 3-5PM. Upon dismissal from their classroom and from approximately 2:30-2:55, the children are having a PEANUT FREE snack (brought from home) and engaging calmly in the café. This is a transition period focused on creating a feeling of safety and inclusion for all children. Most days we give the children supervised play time in the outside yard; please dress your child appropriately for outside fresh air! At 3PM your child’s instructor will escort them to the location of their activity and the fun begins! Dismissal runs from 5-5:30PM in the café. Please be on time when picking up your child.
I am looking forward to enrolling existing and new students to the program. My aim is to make the Afterschool program an extension of the school community that we all hold so dear. Online registration begins at 7PM on June 14, 2018 . All classes are filled on a first come, first served basis in order to guarantee fairness to all.
I want to thank the MNS PTA and Doreen, Amy and all MNS staff members for their continued support of the Afterschool Program as I strive to make it an enriching, fun, safe experience for all. To those parents and children who already participate in the program…….thank you!
