Extended Day—Full Day Programming

The full day programs will be held in Room 112  at the City Campus and in the Library at the North Hills Campus between 8:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. Families MUST register in advance.

A relaxed, fun, and challenging day will be planned with ample opportunity for free play. There will also be themed, organized activities. Please have your child dressed appropriately for outside play (no uniform required). A morning and afternoon snack will be provided, but children must bring a bag lunch and a drink.

There will be no regular bus and van transportation on full day program days.

Full day enrichment programs will be offered on the following dates:

October 14 — Columbus Day (City Campus)
October 25  — Conference Day (City and North Hills Campuses)
December 2 — In Service (City Campus)
January 2 – 3 — Winter Break (City Campus)

March 17 – 21 — Spring Break (City Campus)

The full day programs are open to all students in Pre-K – grade 5 and the price per day is $65. Families must register for these programs in advance. Full day enrichment programs are very similar to a “camp experience” and include special field trips, featured guests, and hands-on projects.
