Extended Care and After-School Programs

The Extended Care program at Resurrection School strives to provide a happy, safe, secure, stimulating, and spiritual atmosphere for every child. The intent is to make our program as much like "home" as possible, while providing socialization and enrichment activities. A snack is provided to students attending Extended Care after school.

We are fortunate to have sufficient space in our Extended Care program so that there are spots for every student who requires care before or after school.  If your need for Extended Care is unplanned or infrequent, simply call the office or inform your child’s teacher.

Afterschool Sports

Resurrection School makes available an extensive After-school Sports Program that is run by and supported by the volunteer efforts of school parents, alumni and friends. The program is open to all students in grades 4 through 8. Wherever possible, teams for each grade (4th -8th) are formed. This program allows students to participate in organized athletic competition against other Catholic and private schools in the area. Our no-cut program provides an opportunity for all students to participate, regardless of ability.

F.I.E.R.C.E. FUNdamentals Skills Basketball Classes

For students in grades 3-8, we will begin offering fundamental basketball skills classes through F.I.E.R.C.E Basketball, a youth organization designed to assist in the wholesome development of young athletes both on and off the court.  In their classes, the coaches focus on teaching the fundamentals of all aspects of basketball.  Their coaching introduces a variety of innovative drills that will increase players’ knowledge, confidence, and passion for the game.  Classes are structured with the players in mind and ensure a safe, fun, and highly energetic environment.

Girls on the Run

The mission of Girls on the Run is to inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running.  Resurrection School completed our first season with Girls on the Run in 2017,  culminating with a 5K Run in Vasona Park.

 

Animation & Programming and DanceMagic

Scratch Animation & Programming from WhizKidz - Is it possible to learn programing without much typing? You bet! Learn visual programming by snapping blocks together in a drag and drop fashion to create your own stories, animations and games. In this fun and easy-going environment, you will learn to think critically and solve problems. The programming concepts you learn are the same skills required when you move on to general programming languages like Java, Python, JavaScript and C/C++.

This is a great course to start your child in programming. However, even if your child knows some Scratch, not to worry. Not only do we have extra challenges that will accommodate the different levels of each student, we also have the experts on Scratch to ensure you are learning it the right way. If necessary, we will break up into separate groups depending on age and programming experience. More info...

DanceMagic provides onsite after-school dance classes for students in grades K-3. Taught by alum parent Karen Dycaico, the class focuses on Ballet and creative movement, incorporating jazz and world dances. Ballet warm-ups will be given to strengthen the child’s muscles and coordination. Creative movement and improvisation will be given to enhance self-expression and the imagination.  Children will learn ballet stories and associate the music that accompanies the ballet. You can learn more at DanceMagic. Choose Resurrection under “Locations” for details about the program being offered here.

Choir

Under the direction of our Music Teacher Sister Fidelma, our school choir is open to students in 3rd through 8th Grade. Students practice once per week after school and provide the music at our weekly masses on Fridays.  There are opportunities for students who play instruments to accompany the choir as well.

Scouts

We offer Cub Scouts for boys in 1st through 5th Grade and Girl Scouts for girls in Kindergarten through 5th Grade.  Parent volunteers are key to leading and supporting these Scout troops.  Look around the school grounds and you can find numerous Eagle Scout projects!

Band Program

The Music School located next door to Resurrection School, which is not affiliated with Resurrection, offers a beginning, intermediate, and advanced band program for students in 4th through 8th grades on Wednesday afternoons, our early dismissal day.

Information about specific timing of band practices and demonstrations of different band instruments is provided at the beginning of the year.  Students perform at Resurrection for the Christmas program, and the spring talent show.

Middle School Dances for 7th & 8th grade

7th and 8th graders attend dances with the other Diocesan schools at various times throughout the year.  Resurrection School typically hosts the annual October dance, and school chaperones are present at all school dances.   Students must maintain a certain grade point average and conduct grade to attend these dances or to participate in after-school sports.
