FXW’s Extended Day Program is designed to provide students from preschool through 8th grade with a safe and stimulating environment in which to learn, play, join clubs and try new things. Our commitment to each child’s complete well-being is fulfilled when their mind, body and spirit work together in an atmosphere of mutual respect.
The FXW Extended Day Program for students at our Holy Name Cathedral campus promotes each student’s the social, emotional, intellectual, and physical well-being. We provide a safe and relaxed environment where our Grade 4-8 students can complete homework, create, explore, and solve problems together in an atmosphere of mutual respect.
We provide students with:
- Homework Help
Students in the first session (3:15 p.m.-4:45 p.m.) start off with a healthy snack before starting their homework. During this time, students complete assignments in a quiet, supervised classroom with support from teachers. Those without homework are encouraged to read a book or study for an upcoming assessment. At 4:15 p.m. students can continue to study or play board or computer games and socialize.
Students who stay on for the Second Session (4:45 p.m.-6:15 p.m.) can choose to spend time in either the Quiet Room homework to study or read quietly; or, in the Recreation Room to play basketball, volleyball, ping pong, dodge ball or another engaging physical activity.
Extended Day – PreK – 4
Our Extended Day Program is designed so that parents can be assured that their children are in an active and social setting after school, every day that school is in session. The day will be broken down into three structured activity periods during which students can participate in sports, arts and crafts, cooking, science, and more. Extended Day will be based on a “fun first” mindset, with activities being constantly rotated so that each afternoon is new and unique. It’s a great place for children to stay engaged while burning off some energy at the end of a long day. There will be an optional homework period every day.
