Winter Sports Program
Our winter sports program happens over six days in January and February. Students in grades 4-6 have an opportunity to choose from a variety of outdoor options, including: cross country skiing at the Brattleboro Outing Club, downhill skiing at Mt. Snow/ Memorial Park, building fires, using survival skills and animal tracking in our Academy forest, sledding and skating at Memorial Park, going to Brattleboro Gymnastics, and being trained in circus arts . Students are able to participate in this wonderful program through community support and fundraising. All 4-6 grade staff members attend and support this program in addition to volunteer chaperones.
Tutoring and Afterschool Enrichment
Tutoring and many other programs are offered to help support and enrich the lives of our Academy Stars. There are three sessions of after school programs offered per year, and they run for 6-8 weeks at a time. Shellie Doubleday, our After school Programs Coordinator, will send home information about how to sign up for these program prior to the start of each session.
After School Meal Program
Academy School participates in the Afterschool Meal Program (AMP), which means that we will be offering a free afterschool meal for all students who are participating in an afterschool activity at school. It is held three days per week, Monday, Wednesday and Thursday from 3:10 to 4:10. A late bus is available for students who need transportation.
The afterschool meal will consist of sandwiches, fruits, vegetables and soups and include milk or fruit juice. The meal is free of charge to all children who attend Academy School and will be offered to all students in attendance in one of our After School Programs.
