All About the KIDS’ CLUB After School Program

The Kids’ Club After School Program is held on school days, Monday–Friday from 3:15-5:00 pm. and is open to 1st-5th grade North Woods International School students who have been referred to the program by their teachers, based on academic need.

When the regular school day has ended at 3:15 pm, Kids’ Club participants check-in for 20 minutes of snack and recess and then spend the remainder of their time (Monday-Thursday) involved in group learning activities, as well as supervised homework completion. On two days of the week, students work in small groups with teachers or teacher assistants. On the other two tutoring days, students work with college students. We end the week on Friday, by celebrating learning with a fun day.
