Before & After School Care

The After School Care Program at Rockway Elementary School serves to foster the vision of the school in addition to teaching our students to work with our community to encourage individualism and life long learning.

Mission Statement: It is the mission of the Rockway Elementary After-School Care Program to unite the school and the community in challenging our students both academically and socially. The mission will be accomplished through reinforcing the academics learned during day school and providing enrichment activities where students can explore and recognize their individual strengths and leadership skills.


Our Before School Care Program is designed so that parents can drop their child off early and go to work knowing their child is in a safe environment. Children in the Before School Care Program are taken to the cafeteria for breakfast.

Our After School Care Program includes a variety of academic enhancement and enrichment activities, including homework assistance, indoor and outdoor games. They are also provided a nutritious snack after the end of the regular school day.
