Middle School Extended Day Program
About The Program
Middle school after care has a variety of options to fit your student's needs. Students will be walked over at 3:30 and can join the activities that are offered.
3:30 - 3:50 Snack and group meeting in Founders Hall
3:50 - 4:50 Study hall/Humphrey's Cafe
5:00 Walk to 333 Dolores
5:20 - 6:00 Free play on the yard at 333 Dolores
Humphrey's Cafe is a space on campus where students can hang out, snack, and take after school activities at their own pace. Open Mondays, most Wednesdays, and Thursdays, Humphrey's converts Founders Hall into a private cafe for 601 students. Students will be able to "order" snack items at no extra cost and find a table to work on art projects, tinkering, board games, and more! Teachers will be on hand to facilitate projects and provide supplies, but the energy and direction will come from the students.
Extended Program will be working with four fantastic music teachers this fall: Peter Greenwood, Warren Huegel, Julie Bruins, and Rosi Garcia Plaza bring a combined 10 years of experience providing top quality music instruction at CDS.
Each lesson will be 30 minutes in length and can either be a solo lesson or a small-group lesson (two to three students, only for Peter/Warren). The cost is $475 for solo lessons and $380 for group lessons for the 10 week session (sliding scale applies). Music lesson registration is first come, first served.
Peter offers music class where students begin with the foundations of rhythm (with cajon), and then the melodic elements (with ukulele and guitar).
Availability with Peter: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday
Warren brings decades of experience as a music teacher and performer. Warren offers lessons for percussion instruments.
Availability with Warren: Wednesday, Thursday, Friday
