After School Activities

For Extracurricular Activities click HERE

The JFK After School Program offers a variety of activities for students to participate in throughout the year. After school typically runs for 7 week blocks and many of the activities remain the same but sometimes new activities are presented with different sessions. These activities do require students to fill out a sign-up packet that students receive in homeroom. The cost of each activity is $45. Students who receive reduced lunch are asked to pay $11.25 and those receiving free lunch are asked to pay what they can afford. Students are asked to bring a snack as they will have time from 2:20-2:45 to eat it in the cafeteria before starting activities. There is no transportation provided so parents/guardians are encouraged to carpool when possible and pick up is scheduled for 4PM. Peggy Clapp and Nancy Adamoyurka organize the After School Program.
