Our mission is to provide a safe, structured, and enjoyable extended day that reinforces the values of our school community.
The After School program registration will be online this year and must be completed by Tuesday, September 1, 2020. The program will begin on Tuesday, September 8, 2020. Stay & Play start dates and other information will be sent out by your child’s pre-school teacher.
The Stay & Play program is available for preschoolers from dismissal - 2:10. Online pre-registration will be required weekly.
The After School program is available for Pre-K 4 through 8th Grade from 2:10-5:30 and also for children who attend an after school activity from the end of that activity until 5:30. Pre-registration must be completed in advance. (You will receive more detailed information on this process before the beginning of the program.)
Please note that children who are not picked up at dismissal time will be signed into the after school program and the applicable charges will apply.

You will receive an Invoice for Stay & Play and the After School program, which must be paid by the due date on the invoice. Our billing and payment system will also be automated this year, and more information will follow.
Please note: Your account must be current in order to register your child for the after school program each week.
Students should bring a nut & cheese dust-free snack in a separate bag labeled for after school and a refillable water bottle. For safety reasons, the after school program staff will be unable to provide snacks or cups, and the water fountain will only be available to fill water bottles. Students should have weather-appropriate outerwear as we will go outside as often as possible; this includes leggings, coats, hats, gloves & scarves in the cold weather. Students should also have a book to read during homework time in case they finish early.
Students can expect a safe, educational environment with enthusiastic and caring staff. In return, the staff expects the students to follow all school rules, both inside and outside, and exhibit proper behavior and care for the building and property. The after school program will typically begin with snack time followed by homework time and then depending on the weather, outdoor play, indoor crafts, movies, and games.
Students may not use personal electronic devices in the after school program. Middle school students may use school laptops for homework only. The Acceptable Use Policy for St. Catherine of Siena School will also apply to after school hours.
Students are discouraged from bringing toys from home to the after school program; any toys that are brought to school for other reasons should be kept in their backpacks during after school hours.
