After-School Activities

FALL 2018


REGISTRATION DEADLINE FOR MOST CLASSES IS FRI, SEPT 14!

Concord Hill offers enriching after-school programs for all grades, designed to stimulate a child's natural curiosity and to provide opportunities for children to interact with friends in a study area of particular interest to them. Courses are offered seasonally, with new courses and registration beginning each FALL, WINTER, and SPRING. Classes are held at Concord Hill School and meet once a week, unless otherwise noted, and all instructors have completed a background check and are insured.

CLASS TIMING

Most After-School Activities run from 3:20 PM to 4:20 PM. When the CHS school day ends, all students enrolled in an After-School Activity will be led to the Community Room where they will meet their instructors, sign in for their classes, and have a snack before they begin. It is recommended that ALL STUDENTS BRING A SNACK when enrolled in an After School class.

WONDERS DROP-IN RATE: $15 for 30 minutes (or any portion of 30 minutes)
Enrollment in Wonders Extended Day Required in Advance

Children who participate in CHS After-School Activities may drop in to Wonders after activities end, in the event that families are unable to pick up during the established dismissal time. Most Afterschool Activities end at 4:20 PM. Instructors are required to wait for 5 minutes for children to be picked up, but after five minutes (4:25 PM for most classes) students will be transferred to Wonders. All participants in Afterschool Activities must complete the Wonders Extended Day registration (no registration fee required), as students who remain five minutes after pickup time will automatically be sent to Wonders in the First Grade Classroom.
