Upcoming Programs

  1. Before and After School Programs

    SPARC Before and After School Program is a licensed child care program that provides a great opportunity for your child to learn and grow both before and after school through a variety of clubs, sports, enrichment activities, homework help, and mentoring. The program provides:

    • Snack Time: A healthy after school snack and 100% Juice are provided.
    • Social Time: A chance for friends to catch up, talk about their day, and unwind.
    • Games and Activities: Every day provides a different activity, or choice of activities that work on a core physical, mental, or enrichment element. SPARC focuses on teamwork, sportsmanship, strategy, critical thinking, and more!
    • Homework Time: We give the students a chance to work on any homework from the day, study for any tests, or ask the staff for any specific help with an assignment.
    • Special Events: Movies, pizza parties, and cookouts!
    SPARC Before & After School Care is only available for days your child is receiving in-person instruction. Reduced rates available; proof of free/reduced meal status required. View flyer.
