After School Activities


AfterCare Program
On most days, Central does not slow down upon our 3:20pm dismissal. An average of 50 students participate regularly in our AfterCare program. And this is no surprise – in the past decade, our percentage of two-parent working families/single parent families has risen to 70%. From 3:15-5:45pm, students are divided into three groups by age and rotate from snack to hands-on activities to homework time to outside play and more.

A typical day in AfterCare includes:
3K/JK/SK
3:15-3:30pm   Sign-in and snack in the multi-purpose room
3:30-4:30pm   Hands-On Activities in the art room

Extra-Curricular Activities
While our athletic department offers the opportunity to be on an inter-school sports team, Central also offers numerous co-curricular experiences through our AfterCare program. Students participate in a variety of clubs that enrich their strengths and expose them to new experiences. In 2018-19, our clubs include: Choir, Band, Chess, Yearbook, Bricks 4 Kidz, Mad Science, Lightgliders, and Cotillion. In addition, our National Elementary Honor Society (NEHS) gather for monthly meeting, and various parent-led Girl Scounts and Cub Scouts troops meet regularly through the school year.
