SYC at the Middle School

About the Middle School Program

     SYC provides a fun, exciting, safe, and healthy environment for middle school students to enjoy afterschool. Here students get to participate in clubs and enrichments of their choosing, that as a student body they create! 


     Students learn what it means to be a leader, to belong, and to have a sense of community. This age group in particular enagages with the community through a variety of service projects, and service related enrichments.

Some details...


We find that costs can be a barrier to a safe and engaging place for students after school at the middle school, therefore there is absolutely no cost for SYC at the middle school. This includes ELS/Academic support, a snack/meal, and enrichments/clubs! 

ELS/Academic Support

Students need to come to ELS Zone every day prepared with something to do. If they do not have any classwork assigned, they may bring a book. or another quiet activity.

Options for activities in ELS Zone:

Work on ELS

Study for quizzes/assessments

Work on products/projects

Organize binder/backpacks

Sudoku/Brain Teasers

Staff-approved individual research

Reading of any kind

Transportation and Dismissal

SMS offers a "Late Bus" for all students who stay after school that picks up about 3:45 pm for students staying for ELS/Academic support. However there is no transportation after program, which ends at 5:30. Parents will choose whether or not their student has permission to walk home after program, or if they will be picked up by 5:30 each day. Students will not be released to individuals who are not on the pick-up list, unless permission has been given to staff. Students who are listed as non-walkers will not be released to walk unless parent specifies with SYC staff beforehand. 

Winter Dismissal Information:

In the event that school releases early, or after school activities are cancelled for the day, SYC is also cancelled.  Parents are then responsible for making sure their student has a way to safely get home from school that day.  Please make sure your child is also aware of the plan!
