After-School Activities/Athletics Registration Guidelines 2022-2023

Registration for After-School Activities and Athletics is first come, first served. Registration for midwinter extracurriculars is open until a week prior to the program start date or the class fills up, whichever comes first. Waiting lists will be generated for families who express interest after offerings hit their registration maximum. If we have fewer than the minimum number of registrants, we may need to cancel a class and will inform families a week in advance. Full payment for each class is required upon registration. If your student is in need of care following their after-school activity or athletic program, you may register for HaBonim Bet (4:50-6 p.m.). There will be no after-school programming on early dismissal or no school dates. 

HaBonim

 

Jump in for fall! Heilicher HaBonim offers fun, safe, enriching, on-site 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 sports/physical fitness activities. Students in grades 3-6 will also have quiet, staff-monitored homework time available each afternoon.

Practice It! Students pair up and practice the fencing move or concept, rotate partners, and repeat.

Move It! Students then participate in fencing matches using only the moves taught so far.

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!
