Staying after school has never been more fun! Our After-School Program for Grades K-8 gives Maimonides students a chance to explore creative interests and develop new skills, and gives parents schedule flexibility and extended hours. Options include an activities program, supervised homework time, and after-school recess.
After-School Recess Program: Grades K–2
After-School Recess is a supervised recess from 3:00 p.m. until 3:45 p.m. This recess is for children in grades K-2, allowing parents who have children in older grades (dismissed at 3:45 p.m.) to pick up all their children at one time (3:45 p.m.). After-School Recess runs Monday through Thursday all year long. A fee of $145 per weekday (charged once for the year) is applied to your Smart Tuition account. Students who ride the bus are not billed for After-School Recess. If you do not plan to pick up your grade K-2 child at 3:00 p.m., they must be signed up for After-School Recess. You may sign up by logging into MyBackpack.
MateS (Maimonides After-School Time ExperienceS): Grades K–5
MateS is our extended day program, from 3:45 p.m. - 5:45 p.m. throughout the year. The fee is $10 per hour, billed only if your child attends, and is applied to your Smart Tuition account. There is a one- time registration fee of $30. MateS allows children downtime for the first 30 minutes, outside weather permitting. We provide a snack and a drink, and then a supervised homework period. When homework is done, the children play ball games in the gym and board games in the lunchroom, and are offered opportunities to be creative with crayons or Lego. Once a week we go to the computer lab for supervised downtime. We aim to offer the children supervised time to unwind with physical activity, a chance to do homework, and time for less structured activity. You may sign up by logging into MyBackpack.
Maimonides School Activities Program: K-8
An extensive range of weekly classes is offered in our After-School Program. Starting after the chagim, we offer two semesters of programs. Options include several exercise classes along with many choices of creative, exciting, and stimulating activities to enrich your children. Classes run from 3:00 p.m. - 3:55 p.m. for grades K-2 and 3:55 - 4:50 p.m. for grades 3-8. Please see the Fall/Winter 2018 brochure for more details. Your child's chosen activities will be billed to your Smart Tuition account.
