Clubs – After School

After School Clubs – Monday through Thursday from 4:15-5:15 pm 

McAuliffe is pleased to be offering a number of after-school clubs from 4:10-5:10pm Monday through Thursday. Some McAuliffe clubs will be school-sponsored and led by McAuliffe staff. For a McAuliffe sponsored club sign-up will be through the link provided and payments will be made to MIS via the main office. Other clubs will be offered by trusted partner organizations and will run during our fall and spring after school programming. In a community partnered class, parents need to contact the organization directly to register and pay for the enrichment. Classes with insufficient registrations may be canceled, and there is a maximum number of students each class can accommodate. Please note that scholarship spots for community partnered classes are extremely limited.

‘COOL’inary Cooking Club (Community Partner)

Our professional chef instructors guide kid chefs by providing safe, entertaining, hands-on learning throughout the class, but it’s the kid chefs who do the prepping and cooking! Our class sessions are a BLAST for all ages! When kids get to touch the ingredients and have a hand in creating their food, they’re much more willing to try new foods. We provide all of the tools, ingredients and instruction needed to cook up a delicious, healthy and hearty after-school snack each week.

  1. Attend a McAuliffe home game, create a student section, and cheer on our classmates
  2. Create posters, notes, and/or treats for the teams/athletes
