After the Bell
In cooperation with the Woburn Public Schools, the Boys & Girls Club is proud to offer extended day programming at both the Shamrock Elementary School and Joyce Middle School.
Shamrock Elementary School – After the Bell
Staffed by teachers and paraprofessionals, the afterschool program at the Shamrock is primarily focused on academic enrichment. Students are recommended by school staff and occasionally there is space for parents to elect for their children to participate. Please note that After the Bell is not a childcare program. Children participate in high yield learning activities that help to improve their academic skills and also receive assistance with their homework assignments. The program takes place from dismissal until 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. After the Bell at the Shamrock Elementary School is a 21st Century Community Learning Center, funded by the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education.
Joyce Middle School – After the Bell
Recognizing a service gap for those middle school students attending the Joyce school, the Club opened an afterschool program within the school building in 2012. Students receive help with homework assignments and also enjoy activities such as cooking, science experiments, and games. The program takes place in the school library from dismissal until 5:30 p.m., Monday through Thursday.
Shamrock Elementary School – Before the Bell
To get the school day started in a positive way, fitness activities are offered at the Shamrock Elementary School. Members of the Physical Education Leadership class at Woburn Memorial High School visit the Shamrock each morning and engage the students in fun games and also enjoy the school’s free breakfast together. It is a great way to start the day! Before the Bell begins at 7:30 a.m. five mornings per week.
