Athletics, clubs, and an official after-school program constitute the majority of our afternoon offerings.
In the fall, soccer is the sport at Maple Street School, and we are proud to field as many teams as our school population and student interest allow. In the winter, basketball is the official school sport in the afternoon. Both fall and winter see multiple home and away contests against many local school teams. Parents are always welcome and encouraged to attend games on campus. Home soccer games on a beautiful fall day are a highlight of the first few months of school. In the winter, we are grateful to be able to escape the cold weather in Hunter Hall as fans pack the gym for spirited hoops contests. There is no official school sport in the spring.
Maple Street continues to explore an expanded offering of afternoon “clubs” on campus throughout the year. This past year we offered options such as Chess Club, Needlepointing, the Ideas Lab, and an Improv Drama Group. This year we will again host multiple clubs on campus and try to increase the number of offerings from last year. An updated list of clubs and when and where they meet will be distributed early in the fall, winter, and spring. Clubs cost $10 per session and typically run from 3:15 pm to 4:15 pm Monday through Thursday.
The Maple Street School After-School Program is a supervised program designed for students in grades K-4. The After-School Program seeks to provide students with engaging learning opportunities beyond the school day. Students in After-School will start their afternoon with a snack and free choice play time to wind down from their busy academic day. Throughout the year, students will enjoy a multitude of hands-on activities including arts and crafts, baking, and nature exploration on Maple Street’s trail network. Older students will also be provided with homework support. Students in After-School should come prepared for play in all weather. This year our program will be supervised by Sarah Tschorn and runs from 3:15 pm to 5:15 pm, Monday through Thursdays. There is no After-School Program on the afternoons prior to the Winter and Spring Concerts.
There is no supervised afternoon program for Upper School students (grades 5-8). If an Upper School student wishes to remain at school in the afternoon while waiting to be picked up, he/she is expected to be in the library and using that time to study or read. Students in grades 5-8 may leave campus to walk into town only with parental permission. Permission to leave campus should be coordinated with Kristen Bowen.
