One of the newest elements to our school community that we are super excited about this year is that we have been funded for a number of after-school programs at our school. These programs will run immediately after school until 5:15PM on multiple days of the week and we will be able to offer a number of different options. These programs will be above and beyond our typical sports programs and they will be run by Wang School staff. There will be 3 rotations of the programs in 10-week cycles with the first rotation starting the week of October 11th. The first 30-45 minutes of each class will focus on academics allowing students to complete classwork, homework, complete some academic enrichments, or get support with academics before they go into the activities described below for each program.
In the fall rotation, we will be offering:
- Band - Are you interested in learning how to play flute? Clarinet? Saxophone? Trumpet? Trombone? Guitar? Bass? Drums? Then join Band after school on Mondays and Wednesdays!
- Gardening & Woodworking - Would you like to help build picnic tables and birdhouses?
Join Mr. King with getting the gardens and school grounds ready for winter.
And of course, there will be lots of other things like needle felting too! (25 spaces available for students)
Knitting Club - Are you looking to learn some knitting skills and how to make all kinds of scarves, hats, mittens, and maybe even stuffed animals? Join our knitting club for some relaxing fun!
Art Club - Art club will be for 5th-8th graders and will provide an opportunity for students who love art to meet students with the same interests, improve their skills in drawing, sculpture, painting, printing and digital art. It will provide an opportunity for students to experiment with a variety of mediums that they may not have access to during the regular art class and include specialty projects. (25 spaces available for students)
3 on 3 Basketball - Looking for some low key and fun basketball? Jump into our 3 on 3 basketball club to have some fun and learn some basketball skills at the same time! All skill levels welcome because the most important thing in this club will be having fun and getting some exercise!
Drama - Want to be a part of this year's musical theater performance? Then you will need to join the drama club to get ready for another amazing Wang School production in the spring!
If you are interested in your student enrolling in one of these after-school programs, you must complete both of the forms below (Emergency Form and Program Choice Form). In addition, although transportation was included in our funding for these programs, the severe bus driver shortage has caused us not to be able to provide transportation home for students after these programs. As a result, students must either be picked up or be allowed to walk home after these programs at this time. We HOPE that this will change soon and we will be able to offer transportation home for our students from these programs so that all of our students can access these awesome after-school classes.
If you are interested in your child being a part of one of these programs, please complete the following two forms:
