• Afterschool Programs at Cleveland Elementary

    Cleveland Elementary offers two after-school programs throughout the school year, conveniently located on campus (some programs may be offered off-site during the summer). They are open to all students, K-5. Children are escorted from their classroom to their specified program at the end of the school day.

    JCC (Jewish Community Center) Kids' Club:

    Kids Club is an extension of the formal school day, serving to complement and enhance learning in the classroom through educational, physical, artistic, and social experiences in a welcoming, inclusive atmosphere. With a small student to teacher ratio (14:1) Kids Club provides children an opportunity to expand their learning, develop meaningful relationships with their teachers, and build community with their peers. The program also offers healthy snacks, homework help, outside play, and plenty of downtime to unwind and have fun.

    Kids Club's Enrichment Program is divided into three 10-12 week sessions (Fall, Winter, and Spring). With assistance from the After School Director, the internal teaching staff develops curriculum based on their interests and passions.

    Recent Kids Club's enrichment programs include "Let's Go, Lego!", African Dance, Soccer, Fiber and Fabric Arts, Super Heroes, and "The Moral of the Story" (discussing important lessons in children's literature).

    Days/Hours: Mon-Fri until 6:00 p.m. (flexible care schedule with a minimum of two afternoons/week)

    QUEST-OASES  (EBAYC, East Bay Asian Youth Center)

    The QUEST After School Community strengthens and supports future heroes with programming that complements the school culture of responsibility and inclusiveness. 

    We join our families in supporting their children to use their superhero powers to make smart choices, but most importantly to learn from them. At the QUEST program, we understand that each student’s path to success is unique, and that the key to personal growth is to keep learning for the rest of our lives.

    Mon-Fri until 6 p.m.
