The after-school program at P.S.118q offers services to the children and families of the school community only. The family-style staffing allows the participants to always have someone, an adult, they can relate to within their group. The emotional and social development of our participants is very important to us and helps us guide the children.
Our parental involvement is one aspect we take pride in. Our families are ready and willing to lend a hand and volunteer, at such events as our Holiday show or our Thanksgiving Family Night. SQPA’s relationship with school personnel is another aspect we take pride in, working closely with the teachers to help the children. We offer homework help, STEM activities, Team Sports activities, and Arts (drama and dance) just to name a few.
Our program has been in existence for over 12 years. We are open Monday-Friday only, on school operational days, from 2:30 P.M. – 6:00 P.M.
We service 80 participants and families out of the 500 student population due to funding. The participants’ ages range from 5 – 12 years old. We offer services such as homework help, recreational activities, academic activities, conflict resolution activities, and anti-bullying. We also offer Friday clubs in the after-school program that include cook shop/snack art, video game tournaments, team sports, and more.
