Afterschool Enrichment

The vision of the enrichment program is consistent with McAuliffe’s vision to “create learning environments where students achieve more than they think possible, become allies and ‘upstanders’ in a kind and welcoming school community, and actively contribute to building a better world.”

General Information
The McAuliffe Enrichment program provides a variety of classes every day. Session 1 classes run from 2:30 - 3:45 and Session 2 classes run from 3:45 - 5:00. Some classes are taught by in-house teachers and instructional aids with areas of interest and expertise that may surprise you! Other classes are taught by outside professionals, staff from the YMCA, parents, and alumni. The classes offered are designed to be both fun and challenging. Once they sign up, please encourage your scholar to continue with classes they choose to receive the full benefit offered.

Days of Operation - Monday through Friday: Term 3: March 16, 2020 - June 12, 2020: NO ENRICHMENT CLASSES 3/26, 4/10, 4/20 - 4/24, 4/30, 5/21, 5/25

Snacks
Please provide an extra snack for your scholar if they will be participating in enrichment classes. It is a long day and we find that many growing scholars are hungry in the afternoon.

Contract - NEW!
Each student participating in enrichment classes will be asked to sign an enrichment contract with their parent/guardian. The contract reviews behavioral expectations of participants in the program. Students cannot participate in any enrichment class without a signed contract.

TheZONE
TheZONE is a place for scholars to go when they are waiting for a second session class to begin, waiting for the bus, or waiting to be picked up. Scholars must be in theZONE when not in a class. Scholars must be enrolled in another enrichment class each day they sign up for theZONE and can be in theZONE no more than one session each day.

Late Buses
Late buses provide transportation for Framingham students who have signed up for the service.  Buses leave McAuliffe at 5:00 pm Monday through Thursday every week. Contact the Framingham School Transportation Department or call them at 508-626-9179 to sign up for late buses. NOTE: Late buses DO NOT run on Fridays and the first Monday of each month. 

Leaving the School
Scholars are not permitted to leave the building and then return to school for band or another enrichment class without a note from parents or guardian. Students cannot leave the school and then return for the late bus under any circumstance.

Early Release Days, Vacation Days and Snow Days
There will be no enrichment programming on early release days, vacation days or when Framingham schools are closed.

THE EXCEPTIONS

Tutoring
Free tutoring and homework help is available for scholars who sign up for tutoring. Tutors work with students who struggle academically, as well as with students wishing to work beyond the parameters of their classrooms. Once your scholar is signed up for tutoring, they will be expected to meet with their tutor weekly unless the scholar or tutor cancels. Tutors come to McAuliffe from the Homework Center at the Framingham Library and are proficient in a variety of subjects. To sign up for tutoring, contact Jill at jrabideau@mcauliffecharter.org.

Band
The Paul Effman Music Service is an instrumental music program that provides band practice, instruction and the opportunity to perform in a band. Sign up and cost for Band is handled directly through the Paul Effman program. Click here for music registration or call the office at (516) 921-4543 to register by phone. The program consists of 30-minute weekly small group lessons and intermittent full band rehearsals. 

Athletics Program
Sports programming will begin at 4:15 so that scholars have the opportunity to sign up for a 2:30 class and still make it to practice. Sign up and cost for Athletics are separate from Enrichment programming. Contact the athletic director at kdao@mcauliffecharter.org for all questions regarding athletics.
