Extended day programs offered The Ramsey Adult School will be launching two new programs in September: Wrap Around Kindergarten and RAS Extended Day. Wrap Around Kindergarten is a before and after kin- dergarten enrichment program for Ramsey district families. This new program will offer a morning session and an afternoon session during the school day at both Hubbard and Tisdale schools. Wrap Around Kindergarten promises to provide children a curriculum based enrichment program that keeps pace with and complements the kindergarten program offered within the school. Registration packets are available at both Tisdale and Hubbard schools; registration forms can be submitted to the Ramsey Adult School office located at 256 East Main Street in Ramsey. The RAS Extended Day program is designed to provide caring supervision and enrichment by adult personnel to children in kindergarten through eighth grade enrolled in Hubbard, Tisdale, and Dater schools. RAS Extended Day’s hours of operation includes a before care program, 7 a.m. to school arrival bell, and an aftercare session, from school dismissal bell to 6 p.m. The program’s aftercare agenda will offer a flexible schedule that will include clubs, enrichment programs and quiet homework and study time. The Smith Study Center offers middle school students a safe, convenient and affordable place to go before school, from 7 a.m. to arrival bell, or after school, from dismissal bell to 5 p.m., to complete homework and receive assistance on homework and school projects. The afterschool session offers private and small group tutoring at an additional fee. Registration packets for this program are available at all Ramsey district schools. Registration will begin Monday, May 4 at the Ramsey Board of Education office, 266 East Main Street. If RAS Extended Day registration is received before June 15, parents will receive a $30 discount on the first child’s annual registration fee, a 50 percent savings.
