We provide a number of options for your child's before and after school program. Please contact our Event and Program Administrator at 905-508-2228.
Before School Supervision
From 7:00 a.m. to 8:30 a.m., elementary students have the opportunity to participate in some exciting physical activity in the gym before class starts. Opening the school at 7:00 a.m. enables parents to drop off their child before work and trust their child is being well cared for.
The Homework Program provides a quiet time after the regular school day where students can complete their homework under the care and supervision of their homeroom teachers. The Homework Program takes place from 4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. involving a smooth transition from the regular school day, giving our students the opportunity to receive extra assistance with their homework, as needed. This hour also enables students to partake in leadership and mentoring opportunities.
In conjunction with student progress meetings that take place each month with staff and the school’s Principal, our Mentorship program provides a one-to-one environment for students who require additional help with their academic work. Our mentors are certified teachers who serve as positive role models and invest themselves in students who require help. They also encourage and motivate students to be their best.
The Mentorship program, from 4:00-5:00 p.m., offers students a pathway to expand their knowledge base, overcome obstacles, and build on their strengths to make positive choices and develop essential school skills. Students are matched with teachers who display strengths in specific areas. Our teacher-mentors are committed and skilled at strengthening our students academically. In a short time, students are able to return to their regular classroom routine. In addition to improved academic performance, the Mentorship program also helps identify - and develop - stronger social and athletic skills.
After School Supervision
Between 5:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m., remaining elementary students transition to Study Hall to continue quiet homework and reading time under the care and supervision of our after school teachers. This offers parents the option to pick up their child later, if necessary. Keeping the school open until 6:00 p.m. provides comfort to parents knowing their child is being cared for until they can be picked up.
Student Homework Club
The focus of our Homework Program is to offer ongoing and practical assessment of a student's academic and social needs and to deliver the appropriate help and resources to meet those needs. Targeted toward specific necessities, we are confident that long-term monitoring will allow him/her to excel in all areas. We want your child to excel in their learning, and we act as a vital extension of your family, sharing love and concern, as we work together to build a foundation for your child's happiness and success.
