Before and After School Opportunities

Before & After School Care:

DSC_2456 (1)DPS Discovery Link (previously known as Kaleidoscope Corner)
DPS offers before- and after-school care at HTES for Kindergarten through 5th graders. In 2016, the program known as Kaleidoscope Corner, will become Discovery Link. The program has been renamed to better reflect the linkage between the school day and the discovery that takes place in the DPS program. DPS afterschool programs are built on a culture of discovery. Combining academic support, arts, athletics, leadership development, social emotional learning and much more, we create an environment that is enriching, engaging and fun.

After School Clubs:

After School Clubs allow your child to explore dynamic activities after the traditional school day. DPS partners with more than 100 organizations to offer a variety of clubs. Each provider is carefully screened to ensure the highest quality and safety.

What are parents and students saying about clubs?

“Thank you for offering cooking, my child loves it and can’t wait to return.”
“Thank you for offering science class!”
“I love the yoga class! I can do a lot of poses.”
“The science class is so hands-on, my child enjoys it.”
“Thank you for bringing such amazing programs to the school!”
