Intermediate Programs & Activities

After School Program

Hornell City School District students in grades 2-6 can now take part in a new after school program, called After S’cool, from 3-5 p,m, every Monday-Thursday. The focus of this program is for academic recovery in the areas of ELA, math and social-emotional learning. Students also receive a healthy snack and participate in library with access to Maker Spaces, physical education with access to the school pool, art, and small group work in reading, writing and handwriting.

Students separate into grade levels with two teachers for approximately 13-35 students per level. The program offers flexibility for students to get help with class work, but the priority is broadening their understanding of the subjects they are working on during the regular school day.

If families are interested in their child being a part of the After S’cool program, they should contact the Intermediate School main office at (607) 324-1304, or the child’s teacher for a registration form. Depending on the grade level the student may be placed on a waiting list.
