After School Programming

New London Public Schools elementary after-school program supports students and families by providing age-appropriate activities that enrich the school day curriculum and foster students’ emotional, social, and academic growth in a safe and nurturing environment.

The after-school program is a 4-day-a-week program, and daily attendance is required. After-school programs are offered Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday on full school days. Program hours vary based on school day dismissal time. Please check with your school’s After-School Site Coordinator for details.

Each day, students participate in three blocks.

Additional Information:

  1. Upon arrival, students enjoy a light supper and social time with their friends.
  2. Students and their teachers then transition to a quiet space by grade for academic support. Certified teachers provide engaging activities that reinforce school-day learning, strengthen fundamentals, and provide students additional time to complete the learning process.
  3. Throughout the school year, students rotate through blocks of various club-style activities presented by our teachers and/or community partners. Clubs may include Science and Nature, Technology, Gaming and Coding, Arts, Music and Dance, Engineering and LEGO’s, Health, Nutrition and Recreation, Environmental, Multi-Cultural, and Community Service projects.
  • Registration is required. Please contact the After-School Site Coordinator at your student’s school for additional information. If the program is full, you will be placed on a waiting list and contacted when a space becomes available.
  • There is no fee for this program however, there is a daily attendance requirement.
