Over the past 11 years, HoopEd has prided itself in offering safe, all inclusive, convenient and affordable programs for kids throughout the area. HoopEd's dynamic and experienced teachers will create a fun and constructive program that will include a homework session, organized play, valued added enrichment programs, and of course the important supervised free downtime essential to the after school period following each school day.
Homework Club will continue to run under the supervision of a teacher, but this year it will be incorporated as part of the ACP. Your child may be picked up immediately following homework club at 4:30, or stay for some fun with friends! OLOM ACP will run until 6:00 pm each day and two to five day a week registrations will be available to fit each family's needs. Drop ins will also be accepted at a daily rate. HoopEd's user friendly website will be used for registration and payment plans will be available.
As the calendar is filled with early release school days as well as professional days where the kids are off of school altogether, HoopEd will fill the void by providing safe and fun mini camps for boys and girls of all ages. Camps for winter and spring break will be offered as well. Why spend this off time at home on the computer or watching TV when you can be exercising, improving skills, and having a great time?
We are excited to introduce students and families to Director Terri Jefferson and other HoopEd staff, and let students participate in the fun activities and games HoopEd will be incorporating in the OLOM ACP this year. Stop by for an hour, or stay for the whole day!
