Play is essential to a child’s academic and social-emotional development. Everyone has an innate playfulness and curiosity that contributes to learning. The Meridian School offers an Extended Day program that supports the academic program (homework help, class room news, Global Studies), school climate (Responsive Classroom, small group activities), and social activities (community service, special events) in our community in a safe, inclusive, and playful environment. The Meridian School Extended Day program balances teacher – led and child-centered activities, and enrichment classes that enables students the opportunity to create, learn, engage, and have fun. The Extended Day program strives to be an active component of the academic program where students have an opportunity to use their extended time at The Meridian School to enrich their on-campus experience.
Hours and Format
Extended Day runs from 7:00 to 8:30AM and from 3:00 to 6:00PM and always includes a nutritious snack for students. Snack Menu October 5th- 16th
Because of the large amount of students we receive in the afternoon at 3:00, we split our extended day students into three groups. Group 1 is K-1st grade, group 2 is 2nd-3rd grade and group 3 is 4th-5th grade. Group 2 and 3 are housed in the north annex till 3:45. This is our Group 2 and 3 Room Use Schedule 2015. Group 1 remains in our extended day room till 3:45.
Here is a look at our morning and afternoon EXTENDED DAY PROGRAM FORMATS.
