Fall Weekly After School Schedule

Extension Home Base

Extension Home Base starts at 3:05pm and goes until 6:00pm. Students sign in and grab snack in the MS Project room.

MS Extension focuses on student-centered exploration. Students are invited to explore all of our After School activities, class options, and homework study spaces. We provide a variety of after school activities and study spaces so that students can self-select their learning environments and what their after school time can look like. Our students are able to pursue and develop interests, connect and build relationships with their peers, and continue the important work of self-discovery.
