Elementary School Programs
MHP Community Life after-school enrichment offerings currently include programs for elementary-aged children and operated from community centers at rental properties in Wheaton, Silver Spring, Takoma Park, and Rockville.
Homework Clubs: The purpose of the Homework Club is to help elementary school-aged children improve their reading skills and help them with their homework while providing a safe and enriching environment to be in after school. Our goal is to have all the children complete their homework daily and to understand the importance of practice and routines. Clubs meet Monday through Thursday from 3:45 to 5:45 p.m., September to June.
MHP has been awarded the 21st Century Learning designation for afterschool enrichment programs in Wheaton conducted in partnership with Arcola Elementary School. The enhanced program, called Great Achievers Toward Outstanding Results (GATOR), offers a STEM-focused curriculum focused on math, science, and reading. The GATOR center operates Monday through Friday, September to June.
Summer Enrichment Programs: The Summer Program provides an array of structured activities for 200-plus children, ages 3-15, during the summer. Our goal is to help children maintain their academic standing at school while having positive experiences. The Camp meets 4-6 hours a day for six weeks during the summer, with some adaptations as needed to conform to pandemic limitations.
