Program Hours and Calendar

Program Hours and Calendar

Programming at early start school sites (Breen, Cobblestone, Rock Creek, Ruhkala, Twin Oaks, and Valley View) will operate from release time until 5:00 p.m.
Programming at late start school sites (Antelope Creek, Parker Whitney, Quarry Trail, Rocklin Elementary, Sierra, and Sunset Ranch) will operate from release time until 5:30 p.m.


The after school program will consist of the following components:
Meeting Time: Teachers and students welcome each other and share information about activities that will happen during the day. This is a time when teachers engage children in different Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) activities to build on students’ self-awareness and friendship skills using team-building activities and self-reflection questions.
Homework/Academic Enrichment: Students complete their homework and extend their learning through engaging teacher-led group activities that are connected to the Common Core State Standards. When students do not have homework, activities such as card/board games, art, craft projects, and STEM challenges are offered to promote skill building while having fun.
Indoor/Outdoor Open Recreation: Students make their own choices to enhance their learning by engaging in various interest areas where learning domains are interwoven (dramatic play, art, reading, blocks/construction, etc.) as teachers engage and interact with them. Students practice their personal responsibility, decision-making, self-management, and relationship skills during this time.
Core Enrichments: Students build on their 21st Century Skills of Communication, Collaboration, Creativity, and Critical Thinking (4Cs) through group activities that are linked to their interests and personal lives. Core Enrichments provide students with opportunities to expand their horizons and to practice their leadership skills during the planning and facilitation of the group activities.
