"Out of School Adventures" for kids grades 1 - 8

Out of School Adventures, a free program that runs Mondays through Fridays from 3:35-5:15 p.m. for students in grades 1-8, starts Sept. 9.

A one-time registration is required; the September calendar and registration information was sent home with first- through fifth-grade students during the first week of school.  A current calendar and registration information can also be found on the Community Education website.at http://www.cookcountyschools.org/se3bin/clientgenie.cgi .

Participants meet in front of the school (eagle doors), then go to the planned activity at 3:45 p.m.  Activities are mostly for first- through fifth-graders but older students are welcome to join.  Activities include a variety of indoor, outdoor and community related activities.

Middle school students are also welcome and could be helpful with activities, homework help or just enjoy a fun and safe place to be after school.  The program will be based out of the Community Center Log Cabin this fall but will be transitioning to a new space soon.

The program is sponsored by Community Education, Cook County Extension, Kids Plus and Cook County Community YMCA.
