The Oregon City School District’s After the Bell Program is an after school enrichment option for K-5th grade students. It operates at all of the district’s elementary sites, with the exception of Candy Lane. Candy Lane students will be bussed to Jennings Lodge after school for After the Bell at no extra charge. 

Our mission is to provide a high quality after school program that integrates the educational, emotional, physical and social needs of the child. In doing this, we commit to respecting the diversities in children and families while honoring the rights and responsibilities of the family unit.

A typical day includes: themed learning activities, play,  stories, crafts, gym and/or outdoor time.  Throughout the year, staff look enrichment and outside program opportunities to offer the students, such as: Lego Robotics, Chess, Mad Science, and more.

Homework help is not a scheduled part of After the Bell, but opportunities for students to independently do homework will be provided.   

After the Bell operates on regular school days from school dismissal until 6:00 pm.    ATB is not a drop in program, families must be registered and pre-pay for services.   There are no credits or refunds for missed days, so parents/guardians are encouraged to carefully choose the days needed. 

Our office at Eastham is open 7 am- 4 pm M-F.  Feel free to call us,  we will be happy to answer all of your questions.
