All About The Extended Day Program
For many Saints Peter and Paul parents, their greatest concern is where their child will stay after school. Parents at Saints Peter and Paul school have a unique alternative to solve that problem – the school’s Extended Day Program. Extended Day offers a safe and secure environment for children in grades K – 8. For the students, after school time in the Extended Day program is fun and educational. Extended Day provides gym/play time, homework time, a snack and a variety of enrichment activities each afternoon. The program operates during regular school days. The uniqueness of the program lies in the fact that it is a self-supporting program. Cost for the program is $17/day/child with a yearly registration fee of $25 per family. Acceptance into the program is on a first-come, first-served basis while offering a choice of daily/weekly or monthly registration.
