Every good school is practically as busy after the official day is over as it is during school hours, and Wesley is no exception. From sports, to enrichment classes, to tutoring, opportunities abound for students of all ages to continue their education and participation.
LEAP - Lions Extended After-school Program
Students are invited to participate in LEAP, which is held every day after school until 6:00pm. After taking a break and having an after-school snack, students have 30 minutes of study hall during which they can work on their homework with the assistance of program staff, if needed. Students then participate in a variety of structured activities and interest-based clubs designed to further their academic, social, and emotional development. Parents can sign their children up for LEAP for the entire year, or on a daily drop-in basis as needed. For questions about LEAP, contact Ms. Julie Lanctot.
Peer Tutoring is a unique opportunity for middle school students to tutor lower school students (K-2) after school in order to obtain community service hours. The heart of peer tutoring however, lies within the friendship made between the two students. Middle school students serve as role models to the younger ones, working with them on self-esteem and character development. This happens organically as the two establish a relationship and create a connection. Students work together once a week for half an hour after school and are assigned a special and safe spot on campus to sit and work. This space remains the same for an entire trimester. New partners are assigned about once every trimester. Students work together on homework, reading, enrichment, or anything that the lower school student might need a little extra help on. Peer tutoring is a fun and beneficial program for students of all ability levels. For more information and to sign up, check out the Peer Tutoring Page and please do not hesitate to reach out to Mrs. Lee Siwek.
