Big Blue After School Program

The Big Blue After School Program serves the needs of more than 215 students. Designed to encourage and support children’s social and emotional development as well as their academic progress, the program offers creative, engaging literacy and arts-based enrichment essentials along with physical recreation components for children in kindergarten through fifth grade. We partner with the San Francisco Arts Education Project to combine arts education with after-school activities.

The Program Focuses on these Three Areas:

  • Academic support, designed with input from school-day lesson plans in reading, writing, science and math, includes: assigned homework time for students, practicing essential habits of learning, and teaching of homework organization skills.
  • Arts-based enrichment activities focus on developing artistic skills in: visual arts, music and rhythm, dance and theater.

  • Physical and recreation activities are also offered in a variety of individual and team sports as well as instruction in healthy lifestyle mind/body exercises.

A note from the Big Blue After School Program Manager...

My name is Susan Tramontana and I am the After School Program Manager and Site Coordinator for the Big Blue After School Program. This year is surely not how we all envisioned it to be, but we will do the best we can and work with what we have! 

I have been working closely with our Principal, Ms Zarr, and we have come up with a plan for the after school program.  We believe your child’s success lies with the success of the academic school day, so the after school staff will be spending time supporting your children and their teachers during the school day hours during virtual learning.  We are also offering Lunch Bunches during the school day where students can have lunch together and socialize.

Our after school program will start at 3:30pm Monday through Friday. During this time we will provide homework assistance and fun, engaging activities for the students. 

Our hope is that you will support the Big Blue After School Program and sign your child up for some fun and engaging afternoon activities.  

If you have any questions, feel free to email me anytime at glenparkafterschool@gmail.com, or reply to this message on Parent Square.

We are looking forward to seeing all of our students in our Virtual Big Blue After School!

Best,
~Susan
