At SPAS, our mission is to provide a healthy, safe environment in which teachers provide quality care to all students. Students are given the opportunity to participate in enrichment activities, study time, physical exercise and homework help sessions.
My After School Program is excited to offer a balance of afternoon enrichment for your child through engaging extracurricular programs for students in grades 1-5. Whether you are looking for athletics or STEAM, we strive to provide something for every child. By enrolling your child in one of our programs, your child will transition from the end of their school day into their extracurricular program. A sample of our classes includes Art, Drama, Bricks, Martial Arts, Robotics, Film Production, Tennis, Soccer, Find the Wild, Dance, Chess and more!
Safety is always our top priority. The instructors for each course will be the same each week allowing your child to feel comfortable in their afternoon environment. We require all instructors to comply with and be “all clear” with the same background check Atlanta Public Schools teachers complete. At the end of their extracurricular class day, students are dismissed back into the My After School Program, SPAS if enrolled, or you can pick-up your child via carpool or walker dismissal at our designated dismissal area. When picking up in carpool, please use your school carpool tag and have ID ready. ID may be checked the first few weeks until the instructors become familiar with all parent faces!
Registration for extracurricular programs begins August 1 at 9:00 AM here on www.myafterschoolprogram.com. Classes will have limited capacities due to COVID-19 restrictions. All instructors, staff and students will follow all current APS protocols regarding COVID-19. If you have an after school profile for you and your family already created in our system, you will use that to register. Otherwise, you will create a profile to enroll in extracurricular programs. Please only use and create one after school and extracurricular profile for MyAfterschoolprogram.com . Classes for Fall semester begin the first full week after Labor day and run through the first week of December. Registration for Winter-Spring semester begins December 1 and classes will begin the first full week after MLK, ending the first week in May. We follow the APS calendar and observe all holidays and teacher workdays on the school calendar.
