GreenMount School’s ECHOES program extends the day after class, but also extends the philosophy into a varied program of enrichment.
What does a typical day at ECHOES look like?
We offer time to finish homework as well as outdoor activity, free time, and a snack. Each Friday includes a special project/experiment.
We use the gym and its stage, the playground, garden, and computer lab. Students are joined by community members who lead activities, guest speakers and performers, and alumni who help as counselors-in-training.
What are the hours?
ECHOES operates Monday-Thursday from 3:30-6:00 pm, and Friday 12:15-5:30 pm. The program also operates on professional-development days (8 am-5:30 pm) and parent-teacher conference days (noon-5:30 pm).
Are lessons and tutoring offered?
They are, as available. Parent and community volunteers lead after-school enrichment activities (for example, Game Club, Shakespeare Club, Chess Club, and Robotics Club). Enrichment-activity fees are $25, and parents can earn co-op hours through participating.
We also offer private classes (e.g. martial arts, music) and tutoring, as available, for a separate fee.
Please contact Kimmy Kemler to volunteer, or for more information.
Can my child participate occasionally?
Yes. As long as he or she is registered, your child can drop in at the last minute, or you can sign-up for specific days in advance.
Can my child attend ECHOES while I complete CO-OP hours in the building or attend parent-teacher conferences?
Yes. As long as he or she is registered, your child can attend at no cost while you complete hours on the premises or during your parent/teacher conference.
