On Monday, we held a kids vs. staff dodgeball game! Enjoy pictures from this epic game!
After School Programs
MCDS offers a variety of after-school enrichment programs for students in grades K-8. On a typical afternoon, a student might take music lesson or an enrichment course after school and/or go to the PM after-school program for supervised activities with friends before taking the 5:00pm bus home.
- ASAP (After School Enrichment Classes)
- PM (After School Extended Care Program)
- Homework Cafe (Grades 5-8)
- FORTE (After School Music Program)
PM, our after-school extended care program, provides a safe, caring, engaging and playful environment for students in grades K-4. PM is open after school hours Monday through Friday until 6:00pm.
Activities include indoor and outdoor games, arts and crafts, building and design-related projects, free play and informal sports activities. PM also provides time for homework, relaxation and exploration. Afternoon snacks are included.
The PM Program hosts a special event during the school year: a Root Beer Float Day in May.
We recently celebrated our third annual Potions Week! This year, we made fizzing rocks and magic dough, created our own magical potions in a bottle, explored chemical reactions by making slime, and so much more.
We continue our "Why We Work in After School" article series with a feature on the wonderful Michael Matthews from Homework Cafe!
