HealthWorks! is excited to launch HealthWorks! After School in August 2019, sponsored by the Tupelo Kiwanis Club!
Ages: Kindergarten-5th grade
Days: Tuesdays and Thursdays when school is in session
Cost: $5 per child per class
Registration: Please call ahead of time to register your child so we can get necessary information and staff accordingly
What to expect: Lots of fun and exercise! Kids can arrive at 3:15 and have a light snack provided by HealthWorks! (crackers, apple slices, cuties, or the such) and play on the Funtastic Floor until the program begins about 3:45. Then they’ll go into a HW! Learning Lab for a short health activity, but most of the time will be spent getting active and exercising in the Zoom Room! Activities may include: running an obstacle course, playing games, team challenges, etc, but they will be appropriate for all ages and fitness levels. We just ask that the child be ready and willing to participate! Parents will need to pick up by 5:15pm and BRING ID to pickup their child.
Please call HealthWorks! to sign up! 662-377-5437
And here are answers to some Frequently Asked Questions about the program:
1: Do I need to drop off my child or will you provide transportation with a bus from school?
You (or someone else) drop off. HealthWorks! is not providing transportation to or from the program.
2: What time is the program?
Dropoff at 3:15, pickup by 5:15
3: Is there a discount for HW! members or multiple kids?
Not on this program. Just $5 across the board. 🙂
4: Will there be a snack provided?
There will be a light snack provided at dropoff. Examples of the snack may include cutie oranges, apple slices, or goldfish. If your child prefers more than that after school, they may need a snack before arriving, but please keep in mind they will be moving a lot during the program.
5: What will kids be doing in the program?
Most of the time, they’ll be exercising and doing physical activity in HW!’s Zoom Room. There will be some free play at HW! and a short healthy activity involved also. Come ready to be active!
6: Does my child need to come to every class?
No, just come when you can! But please call ahead if your child is coming so we can plan accordingly.
7: Can I pay for the whole semester at once?
Sure! You may pay in advance, however, HW! will not issue refunds if your child misses a class OR if we need to cancel class for an unexpected reason, such as severe or inclement weather. You may also consider paying week-by-week or month-by-month instead of the whole semester – we’re flexible!
8: Will there be homework time provided?
No, this is an active after-school program. Students won’t have homework time.
9: Does my child need to be physically fit?
Nope, come on! As long as they are willing to participate, they’ll have a great time.
10: What’s the dropoff/pickup procedure?
Dropoff kids in the front lobby. Bring cash or check to pay quickly at the checkin table. If you want to pay by credit card, you will need to visit the front desk or you may call ahead to pay by phone. For pickup, please BRING YOUR ID and we’ll make sure you are on the authorized to pickup list.
