The Lesley Ellis Afterschool Program provides children with a variety of interesting and challenging activities after the regular school day. Children share projects, games and other activities in a secure environment and at an unhurried pace. This helps to promote the continued development of positive self-esteem.
Afterschool offers programs for early childhood, elementary and middle school age students which are designed to provide opportunities for exploration and enhance classroom learning.
In the Early Childhood Program, activities are centered around themes. Elementary students select an activity from one of two choices each day. In addition, there is a homework/quiet reading time, an opportunity to play outside and snack time. Some of the activities offered include: bowling, badminton, indoor rock climbing, jewelry making, and woodworking. Middle School students may come to the LES Clubhouse. The Clubhouse is a "hangout" time, as well as an opportunity to get homework done. See LES Afterschool Brochure with course descriptions and registration under "Additional Resources" on the left sidebar of this page.
The Afterschool Program begins at 3:15 p.m. and ends at 5:30 p.m.
