After care is debuting a “Fun Friday” series that will begin on Jan. 20, 2023. Offered on three Fridays throughout the semester, Fun Fridays will be an immersive after care experience for students to enjoy themed activities with friends. January’s theme, “Snow Day,” will include activities like snowman bingo, winter crafts, and snowy story time.
“After care always gives students an opportunity to finish homework and have supervised play after the bell rings,” explains Anna Karam, after school manager. “Our vision for Fun Fridays is to make after care even more fun going into the weekend.”
This mission of after care is to provide a service that supports Wesleyan parents by creating alternative pick up times, while also providing an experience that is enjoyable and enriching for each student.
“Our hope is that after care would serve our community by offering a nurturing environment after school. We want it to be a place that encourages students to build community and explore their creative passions. And most importantly, we want students to be genuinely excited to come each week,” shares Kelly Weatherly, director of auxiliary programs and outreach.
Fun Fridays will take place on Jan. 20, Feb. 10, and March 24, and the Fun Friday experience will be provided at no extra charge for those registered for after care. Students who are not registered for after care may attend Fun Friday for the $50 drop-in fee. For more information, click here.
