Although the class day ends, opportunities for students to enrich their learning continue. Eton makes its facility available to a variety of outside vendors/instructors for after school enrichment classes.

Registration for classes is online and on a first come, first served basis. Although not required, we recommend parents log in in order to eliminate the steps of having to enter their name and e-mail on the form. When the class is full, a waiting list is created.

After-School Clubs (Grades 4-8)

Upper Elementary (Grades 4-5)

Homework Club

Home + Work = Homework. This is one of the most famous equations that all students instinctively know, and yet they sometimes have trouble solving it or finding enough time to do so. To help, Eton School is offering a weekly Homework Club for the Upper Elementary students.Starting on October 31, Wednesday, from 3:30-4:45 p.m., fourth- and fifth-grade students can come to Casa III for Homework Club. They will find a relaxed and academic environment where they can catch up or get ahead on their work. Staff will be available to answer questions and encourage everyone as needed (as well as provide a tasty snack).

There are a few other important details. Homework Club is a drop-in service; so while it is nice to know who is coming, there is no need for advanced notice. Also, there is an $11 charge per hour to cover snacks, facilities, and staff, and it will appear on your family account as a Clubhouse charge. Lastly, anyone who is not picked up by 4:45 p.m. will be taken up to Clubhouse in the Main Building.

Wonderful Writing Club

This Wonderful Writing Club is designed to support the development of basic writing skills in a calm and fun way. Students will write in many different ways to make it fun while also paying attention to grammar, writing skills and expand the depth of the writing. This relaxed environment facilitates each student to go beyond his or her current comfort levels to develop creativity and skillful composition.

Wonderful Writing Club meets on Tuesday afternoons from 3:30 p.m. to 4:45 p.m. in Casa IV. The students have some input into a culminating activity but will spend most weeks developing a stand-alone piece of writing utilizing the writing process.

Advanced registration is not required, but it would be appreciated if you would let Mrs. Stefani Brand know if your child plans to attend. Space is limited for this club, and there is an $11.00 charge per hour to cover snacks, facilities, and staff which appears on your family account as a Clubhouse charge. Anyone who is not picked up by 4:45 p.m. at Casa IV will be taken up to Clubhouse in the Main Building.

FIRST LEGO League Club

Students in the FIRST LEGO League Club will have hands-on robotics fun while transferring classroom concepts to real-world applications. They will be challenged to research scientific problems and present solutions while working with LEGO Mindstorms. Supervised by Mr. Glatt and parent volunteer Mrs. VedBrat, students will participate in the 30th year of the F.I.R.S.T. LEGO League! The theme for this year is “Into Orbit,” with challenges that will transport the team into space, where they will explore, challenge, and innovate in the vast expanse of space.

Cost: $11.00/hour (Charges appear and are billed as Clubhouse)

Grades 5-8

Board Game Club

When thinking of board games, many go back to childhood days of playing Monopoly, Sorry!, Risk, and many others; those are still popular, but it is quite remarkable how far the board game industry has come in the last few decades. Games are rich in strategy, probability, reading comprehension, storylines, teamwork, and more, and they fit all of that into a cardboard box that is as entertaining as it is enlightening.

To celebrate and enjoy these delightful games, students from fifth to eighth grade will be gathering on Tuesday afternoons for Board Game Club from 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. The students generally learn a new game each week and then spend the rest of the time playing and bonding with their classmates. It is quite a fine way to spend an afternoon, and we are fortunate that Eton students, families, and staff support and appreciate such endeavors.

Advanced registration is not required, and there is an $11 charge per hour which appears on your family account as a Clubhouse charge. Anyone who is not picked up by 5:30 p.m. is taken up to Clubhouse in the Main Building.
