IAA After School Activities
“Education neither begins nor ends in the classroom”
At InterAmerican Academy, the After School Activities (ASA) program enriches our curriculum by making a wide variety of activities available to students. The ASA program is considered an integral part of our school’s holistic approach to education by providing opportunities for students’ growth physically, socially and emotionally. Additionally, it increases student-to- school connectedness by fostering relationships with different teachers outside of the classroom. We expect our ASA program to further develop our students’ unique capabilities, interests and needs beyond the classroom. Participation in these activities is a privilege offered to and earned by students.
The ASA program seeks to follow the IAA vision of creating a learning environment where collaboration is promoted, practiced and modeled by our sponsors to nurture the development of the whole child, both body and mind. Our activities further shape students’ communication, problem solving and emotion management skills. Sponsors of the ASA model and reinforce these important skills that increase academic performance as well as social and emotional competencies.
At InterAmerican Academy we have three ASA seasons. Before the beginning of each season a form is sent home so you can take a time with your son/daughter and select which of the proposed activities they would like to take part in. Many activities will run for just one season, whilst others will run the entire year. All our activities run from 2:20 to 3:15 pm, exceptions made for Paid activities that could have a different schedule. Please look through the list and then complete the FORM and return it to your child's homeroom teacher or to Mr. Matute by the required date.
Parents and High School Students!
If you would like to help, or even want to run an activity please contact Mr. Matute by mail or set up a meeting so we can discuss your proposals.
Finally we invite you to read our ASA Rules and Policies document in order to clarify any doubts or concerns that you could have.
