After-School Program

Clearway School

History of After-School Programming at Clearway

Over twenty-five years ago, Clearway families approached Clearway staff with the concern that their students needed time to build friendships with peers – many of whom live far away.

These families also expressed concern that students needed support in socializing due to social/emotional or pragmatic language concerns. Clearway responded with the Thursday after-school group which has helped numerous students develop friendships and become better connected to our community.

Over the years, Clearway sought ways to expand after-school programming to respond to other needs of our students. Typically, we have a sports team each season- soccer (fall), basketball (winter), and ultimate frisbee (spring)

Clearway depends on contributions to support after-school programming and programs are only open to current Clearway students. During the 2020-21, school year a number of after-school programs occurred remotely including a Thursday social group, peer tutoring, and arts and craft.

In the spring of 2021, after-school programming returned to in-person with a Thursday social group, frisbee, and yearbook.

During the 2021-22 school year, the following after-school programs are taking place (or have occurred):

Thursday social group (2:30 to 4:30)- all year

Soccer (Mondays and Wednesdays in September and October 2:30 to 4:30)

Dungeons and Dragons (Fridays 12:15 to 2:30 from November 5th to January 21st)

Basketball- Coming After Thanksgiving Break

Clearway will continue to survey students regarding their interests and offer additional c. 8-week sessions of after-school programs.
