After-school Activities

HaBonim

Heilicher HaBonim offers fun, safe, enriching, onsite activities for K-6 students after school. Students will have snacks, active play in the gym or playground, and free choice activities including art projects, games, and ga-ga. Students in grades 3-6 will also have quiet, staff-monitored homework time each afternoon.

In addition to HaBonim, there are loads of after-school activities such as Chess, Robotics, and Athletics. Each of these programs coordinates with HaBonim to provide seamless transitions for students who need to move from one program to another.

See you after school!

Heilicher Parent

I loved being on the sports teams at Heilicher. They were fun and not too pressure-filled. I felt more comfortable going out for sports in high school, which was a great way to meet new people!
