After-School Specials

All WMS students are welcome to register for After-School Special Programs. WMS students not registered for the regular Extended Day program are welcome to go the after-school room when regular classes are dismissed, have a snack and play with friends until it’s time for their special program. There is no extra charge for this interim care. Siblings may also attend Extended Day child care at no charge until the class is over.
