After School Programs
After School Care
St. Matthew’s After School Care is a fee-based childcare program provided by the School for the convenience of those K-8 families who need childcare after the end of the regular school day. The program is offered when school is in session according to the following schedule:
Monday – Thursday: 3:00 – 5:00 p.m.
Friday: 3:00 – 4:00 p.m.
Students have an opportunity for quiet study, informal socialization, and supervised playground activities. Parents may enroll students by the semester, the year, or on a drop-in basis. Charges are $10 an hour or a prepaid 10-hour punch card for $80.
St. Matthew’s After School Enrichment Program offers special interest classes for K-6th Grade students each fall and spring. Enrichment classes are held from 3:15 – 4:15 p.m. on designated days of the week when school is in session. Course offerings change from one semester to the next and include such choices as chess, cooking, Musical Theatre, introductory sports and dance, robotics, and Minecraft.

(make-up week: January 29th)
Session II: February 5 - May 21

Students gather after school on the blacktop for snacks and play time. Enrichment instructors meet students at 3:15 p.m. and escort them to classrooms. Classes finish at 4:15 p.m. unless otherwise noted on class description. Students remaining after 4:15 p.m. will be considered enrolled in After School Care and parents will be charged accordingly.
Homework Club is a free after school program designed to assist students in Grades 4-8 who wish to get class homework assignments completed before going home. Although a middle school teacher supervises the program and may be of some support, it is for students to do unassisted, independent homework here at school. The program meets Monday through Thursday from 3:00 to 4:00 p.m.
Students who are unable to adhere to behavior expectations will be moved to After School Care and parents will be charged. Students waiting for a ride home after 4:00 p.m. will join After School Care and parents will be charged accordingly.
