Tutoring: This is offered by individual teachers after school from 2:45-3:30. If parents are interested in tutoring for their students, please contact the classroom teacher.

Afterschool Program (ASES): The purpose of the afterschool program is to provide a safe place for students Kindergarten-8th grade to complete some school work, have time for physical activities and participate in arts and crafts, cooking and gardening projects. This program is for students whose parents or guardians need a place for their children 5 days a week.

The Warrior Aikido Project: This is run by Sensei Izzy Arkin on Mondays and Thursdays in the Dojo. Sensei works with many age groups teaching the students Aikido techniques but also incorporating character traits such as perseverance and focus. He also works with students on mindfulness strategies.
