Extended Care

We are making beautiful masterpieces in Extended Care! Won't you join us? The Art and the Modern Masters Class  teaches children about great modern artists like Frida Kahlo and Andrew Wyeth. We learn a little about their lives when they were young children, then we create a work of art inspired by the artist. It is so much fun!

If you are interested in reserving a spot,  download a reservation form here. Your Preschooler is invited to join us for lunch, then make a piece of art inspired by the modern masters. We hope you will join us!

Use the  forms  below to register your child for pizza days or any other time in Extended Care:

Invoices for  January extended care are now past due. Invoices for February extended care will be sent home in backpacks March 5 and 6 and are due March 27.  Please submit payment to the office or via your child's backpack.  Call the office with any questions.  Thank you!
