St. John’s offers fun-filled after-school enrichment programs in partnership with our Home School Association. Various classes are offered throughout the year for targeted age groups. Some examples of the classes recently offered included LEGO Club, Chess Club, a reading circle, Santa’s Workshop, a yoga workshop, Rainbow Loom Craft Making, and other arts and crafts classes, too.
Classes are geared towards various age groups to ensure engaging, age-appropriate activities. A nominal fee covers your child’s cost of materials. The duration each class depends upon the project or activity. Classes are often held in conjunction with a holiday, such as Halloween, Christmas, Valentine’s Day, Easter, Mother’s and Father’s Days, and so on.Ski Club
Students in grades 5 to 8 journey to the south-towns en route to the snow-capped hills of Kissing Bridge. Our ski club travels by chartered bus every Friday afternoon during January through March to hit the slopes with their skis and snowboards, weather permitting. Parents chaperone our students and return the crew home each week around 11:00 pm. Equipment rentals available through Kissing Bridge.
Girls on the Run
Over a period of 10-12 weeks beginning in March, girls in Grades 3-5 participate in an after-school program designed to recognize and to celebrate their inner strength. The Girls on the Run lessons encourage positive emotion, social, mental, and physical development. At the end of each three month session, the girls participate in a Girls on the Run 5K Event!
Sports ‘n More
Flag football and floor hockey are just a couple of the sports enrichment classes offered after-school by our physical education instructor. A coach himself, Mr. Vorburger incorporates direct instruction with team building etiquette to provide fun and healthy after-school sports play. Sessions are offered throughout the school year and geared towards various age groups to ensure age-appropriate interaction at a nominal fee.
