Elementary Afterschool Activities

ESPm & PEAS

ESPm (Elementary Sports Program)
A long-standing favorite of parents and students alike, ESPm provides students an opportunity to learn about sports and build fundamental skills through instructional and competitive activities. We emphasize the importance of basic skills, rules, strategies, respect and responsibility, positive peer interaction, teamwork, sportsmanship, character building, and fun. Instruction is offered in both team and individual sports as well as in recreational activities. ESPm offers various units, allowing students to pick and choose activities of interest. Each unit runs for approximately three weeks, on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. 

PEAS (Pony Enrichment Activities)
The PEAs program provides children with a wide variety of interesting, challenging, and fun activities that engage diverse learners. The enrichment activities not only stimulate both the body and the mind, but also offer a relevant life skill learning opportunity. Social interaction and development of appropriate social skills are emphasized. PEAS units run for three days each month, on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday after school to 5:30pm. There will be eight (8) units available for your student to participate in, and each unit is appropriate for boys and girls. 

Fee Structure
The fee for each ESPM unit is $135.00 and each PEAS unit is $45.00, no matter how many days of the unit your participant is in attendance. Many of the ESPM units, and some of the PEAs units will have limited space available, so the unit fee will be required to be paid upon submission of the Participant Information & Sign-up Form. These forms will be available online soon!

Homework Club

The Elementary Homework Club provides a safe, structured, and educational atmosphere for students to complete their homework, improve study skills and strategies, and participate in various enrichment activities. Families that previously benefitted from our After Care program should enjoy Homework Club just as much. Elementary Homework Club is available Monday through Friday on days school is in session, from 3:00-5:30 p.m. Students should come prepared to spend a portion of their time outdoors. The fee for Homework Club is $15 per day of attendance. 

Please email Jenn Perry at homeworkclub@denveracademy.org with additional questions or to sign up. Please register your student(s) at least a week before the desired date of attendance to ensure an available spot.
