After-School & Athletics

LMC partners with Manhattan Youth to produce a dynamic and comprehensive after-school program. Students in our after-school program build Lego robots, act on stage, dance ballet, modern, and hip-hop. They make movies, learn to touch up digital photography, and write for the school newspaper. Many of our students compete on LMC teams including: step, mathletes, flag football, basketball, soccer, table tennis, fencing, baseball, track and field, volleyball, badminton, and cross country. We also teach students how to code, write music, and play instruments.

Our after-school program takes place Monday-Friday starting right after school until 5:45 p.m. The program is free for all students who participate. Some of our athletic teams require uniforms, which would be the only cost for students.

Daily Schedule

After-school activities begin directly after school. Students have 15 minutes during snack time to gather their things and get what they need for after-school. Snack is provided in the cafeteria. Students who do not check in with an after-school staff member by the beginning of the first activity session will not be permitted into the program. Students may not leave the building between the end of the school day and beginning of after-school. Any student who leaves the building will not be permitted back into LMC.

If you know your child will be absent from after-school, please email Rachel Oakes. LMC after-school activities fill up quickly, and there is often a waiting list. If a student is repeatedly absent from an activity without a note from a parent/guardian, they may lose their slot. If a student wishes to change their schedule or drop any or all after-school activities, a request must be made in writing by a parent/guardian. Students must not simply stop coming to activities.
