RCMS after school program open to students

Rishabh Malkani, Writer

The RCMS After School Program began on Sept. 16, offering various clubs and activities. The program is open to anyone who can stay up to two hours after school.

There are different options for going home after a club or activity. Late buses run on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. They leave between 4:30 and 4:45. Kids who take the late bus will need to check their late bus number.  Students can also choose to have a parent or guardian to pick them up at the Kiss-n-Ride.

Most clubs are available to sign up on the stage in the cafeteria, or enroll before all slots are filled. However, some clubs like Debate, Model UN, Jazz Band, and others require a tryout to be considered for admission.

The after school program is broken into two blocks: A and B. Each block runs for an hour. A block runs from 2:23 to 3:23, while B block runs from 3:28 to 4:28. Between blocks, there is a five minute transition for getting from one club or activity to another.

Different clubs have different schedules. Some clubs only run on A days, others run on B Days, and some run on both. Club schedules vary by teacher, so the teacher(s) in question might announce the date and time the club or activity is running. If you are unsure about club schedules, ask the teacher in charge of that club.
