Beyond the Bell is an action-packed afterschool program for Cherry Brook Primary School students in grades K through 3. The program will be offered from 3:30-5:30 p.m. on Monday, Tuesday, and Friday with the exception of school vacations, holidays, professional development days, and snow days. Beyond the Bell is the school year equivalent of our tremendously popular Explorers Summer Camp and is run in the same format including indoor and outdoor sports, group games, arts and crafts, and even entertainers. Additionally, each day will include a quiet time for students to complete homework and help will be available for those really tough assignments.
Benefits of an after school program are widespread. Quality after school programs provide a safe, nurturing place of supervision for school age children where there are opportunities to reinforce learning from school, teach social skills and encourage good citizenship. Canton Parks and Recreation hopes that offering this program provides students with an affordable, fun and safe program for after school hours. One of the key elements of this program is “RECREATION”; through the activities that we offer, we are hoping to help your children develop some life-long leisure skills, as well as an understanding about the importance of having recreational interests.
