Extended Day Program and GUS+
Students at Glen Urquhart participate in a wide variety of extra curricular activities after school. Some students are enrolled in our after school program, offered for grades K through five from 3:00-5:30. Here they have the opportunity to develop friendships within their own age groups and with children from different class levels as well. Their time at after school is unstructured, with the freedom to relax with their friends while under the supervision of a professional teacher. Children may choose to play on the playground, the basketball and four square courts, play pick up football or soccer, or engage in imaginative play on the playground structures. Indoors they play board games, draw, cook, do crafts, read, or do their homework.
Students at Glen Urquhart may also enroll in special after school enrichment classes called GUS+, that are offered throughout the school year. The topics rotate based on interest but include or have included: ballet, movie making, chess, art classes, sports, yoga, fencing, dance, and SSAT preparation.
Music lessons are available as part of our after school program. Various instrument lessons are offered between the hours of 3:00 and 5:00 PM.
