Beyond the School Day

After the school day is over, FCS offers a range of childcare and activities for families under the care of Auxiliary Programs. Registration for these programs are done on Ultracamp, our Auxiliary Programs platform which also manages Summer Camp programs.

FCS’s Extended Day (Ex-Day), is our general childcare program is a supervised period for students to run around outside in mixed grade level groups, play games, do arts and crafts, and generally be kids. There are also opportunities for older students to work on homework with adult support.

Each semester, FCS offers a diverse array of Afterschool Enrichment Activities for students in grades K through 8 in subjects ranging from Ultimate Frisbee to role-playing games. These activities operate on a weekly basis and are taught by FCS teachers and community members with available options shared with families early each semester.

FCS offers an Afterschool Instrumental Music Program for students in grades 5 through 8. FCS musicians have consistently won the highest markings in county-run solo and ensemble festivals, and many graduates receive spots and scholarships in high school band programs.
