Welcome to New Manchester Elementary School's After School Program web-page. Mr. Bowen and Ms. Tillman serves as the After School Program Directors at NMES and Mrs. Cheney serves as the Bookkeeper.

All fee-based After School Programs in Douglas County will use a new online registration process for the upcoming year. All students must be registered for the program online before they'll be allowed to stay after school. 

Any student participating in an After School club or activity such as: Singin' Eagles, Beta Club, Safety Patrol, Drama Club, Eagle Athletics, Chess Club or Road Runners must be registered for the After School Program.

The After School Program sponsored by the Douglas County School System is designed to provide adult supervision, in a group setting, to students whose parents work outside the home after school hours. The After School Program does not provide educational services to students and is not intended to be an educational program. Rather, group activities in which students will participate include things such as movement, homework, computer games and story time. Eligible students with disabilities who enroll in the After School Program will be provided reasonable accommodations and/or modifications in order to afford them meaningful access to the program. Accommodations are considered reasonable where the provision of them would not result in a fundamental alteration of the program or the services offered by the program or create an undue financial or administrative burden.

                                                                                              Mission

The mission for the Douglas County School System After School Program (ASP) is to provide a safe, relaxed, and enjoyable environment for its students. The ASP provides enrichment activities, social interaction with peers, and homework help in a well-supervised, structured setting.

                                                                                      After School Hours

The ASP is open from 2:45 p.m. - 6:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. We are closed on holidays, teacher workdays, conference days, early release days, and summer break. Students must be picked up no later than 6:05 p.m. There is also a late fee of $1.00 per minute, per family after 6:05 p.m. 
After the third late pick up the student will be withdrawn from the program for the remainder of the school year. The parent will be allowed to re-register their child back in the After School Program for the next school year. 

                                                                                      Program Length

All elementary and middle schools plan to start their ASP on the first day of school. The ASP concludes during the last week of the school year. The school determines the exact date.

                                                                                  Discipline Procedures

The After School Program follows the discipline policies of the Douglas County School System. Each school will establish specific discipline guidelines at their school site. Students may be temporarily or permanently removed from the ASP depending upon the offense. Once the student reaches their third offense, the student will be dismissed from the After School Program for the remainder of the school year. The parent will be allowed to re-register their child back in the After School Program for the next school year.

                                                                                 Schedule of Activities

Students will receive a hot or cold meal  each day before starting on their homework. Instructors work with students to complete daily assignments, assigned homework and other projects. Activities may include: cultural activities, enrichment projects, violence prevention programs, drug awareness activities, community service projects, and technology exposure. As students are checked out from the After School Program, will receive a nutritious snack to take with them. 

The Douglas County School System After School Program is made possible through the generous support of student tuition, and grants from United Way of Metropolitan Atlanta and Communities in Schools of Georgia. 

We look forward to an AWESOME After School year with your child. Please reach out to us if you have any questions or concerns.
