Extended Care for Middle School
Middle School Activities, Sports & Homework
MASH, our after-school program for students in grades 5-8, offers students a chance to get their homework done after school and free up more evening time, as well as providing opportunities for activities and socializing. MASH also accommodates participation in after-school sports and clubs. You can sign your children up for MASH from 3-5 days per week, as well as on a drop-in basis if space is available.

Philosophy and Activities
MASH offers students the opportunity to do homework, socialize, play on the blacktop, and take part in various age-appropriate activities. Students can participate in ACDS after-school clubs and sports, and then rejoin the MASH program when finished. The program is supervised and administered by an ACDS staff member. Students should bring their own snack to MASH.
Homework Center (HWC) is offered in conjunction with MASH, serving 6th-8th grade students on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.
HWC is intended solely for completing homework or other work for school. Students in HWC must be picked up by 4:20 pm or join the MASH program at that time. The atmosphere is quiet and focused, with students getting help from the MASH supervisor as needed. Fifth graders enrolled in MASH have the opportunity to complete homework during HWC as well.
Who Can Attend
MASH is for students in grades 5-8. To reserve a spot, students may enroll in MASH for a minimum of three days per week or attend on a drop-in basis (first-come, first-served) as space allows.
