IS 289 After-School Activities


Welcome to a world of sports, arts, homework help and other extracurricular activities! Joining the Manhattan Youth After-School Program at I.S. 289 gives your child a safe place to go every day after school where he or she can complete homework assignments, play for the school's sports teams, perform full-length plays, learn to cook, compete in citywide robotics competitions and more.

After-School Activities Begin at 3:15 pm

Students have 15 minutes after school dismissal to gather their things and go to their lockers. Snack is provided in the cafeteria free of charge from 2:50 to 3:10pm. Students who do not check in with after-school staff by 3:10pm will not be permitted in the school building.

If you know your child will be absent from After-School, please email the Site Director. We expect activities to fill up quickly, and for there to be a waiting list. If a student is absent from an activity without a note from a parent/guardian, he/she may lose his/her slot. If a student wishes to change his/her schedule or drop any or all after-school activities, a request must be made in writing by a parent/guardian. Students must not simply stop coming to activities.
