Clubs – After School

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

McAuliffe is pleased to be offering several 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.
