After-School

What is the Kilmer After School Program?

The mission of the Kilmer After-School Program is to provide students with a supervised and structured vehicle for academic, athletic and art enrichment and remediation opportunities. Social, life, and prevention skills are integrated into this design. This free program provides a mixture of diverse academic and non-academic supervised activities to our students. Students have the option to choose what they would like to do after school as well as the ability to try different activities daily. Snacks may also be provided, depending on the activity!

Why Join?

Based on research, there are a lot of positive outcomes that come from staying after school:

  • Increased classroom participation, homework completion and academic performance
  • Improved student behavior
  • Better student/adult relationships, peer relations, and emotional adjustment
  • Improved school attendance
  • More positive attitudes towards school
  • Reduced high-risk behavior
  • Increased participation in healthy recreational activities
  • Increased school, family, and community partnerships

How do I sign up?

1. Complete the After School Registration Form with your parent/guardian BEFORE staying after school.

2. Choose what program you would like to attend AND tell your parent/guardian.

3. Stay after school!

Note: The After School Registration Form must be completed and submitted to Ms. Kardelis prior to a student staying after school for any reason (even for academic support). Paper copies of the form are also available in the Main Office and Cafeteria. 

When can students stay after school?

Students may stay after Monday-Friday with parent and teacher permission. FCPS late bus transportation is provided on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.  Late bus assignments and stops are not the same as regular bus assignments. Students are to sign up for late buses during lunch in the cafeteria. Most activities will last only one block, but some may run the duration of after-school.

After-School dismissal is at 4:45 pm. After-School/Late Bus transportation is available as of September 19.

Cougar’s Den, the recreational component of the after-school program runs on Fridays from 2:15 pm - 4:45 pm. Parents are responsible for prompt pickup and transportation home.  After-school activities will not be held on Fridays when the following Monday is a Student or Federal holiday. On early release days, there are no activities after school.
