Trinity Lutheran's After-School Program 2023-2024
Trinity Lutheran’s After-School Program is a secular program designed to meet the needs of working families with school-age children enrolled at Fort Washington Elementary School (FWES).
The after-school program does not discriminate on the basis of sex, race, color, national origin, religion, disability, or ethnic background. Children of all backgrounds and abilities are encouraged to enroll. Enrollment is open to any individual with a disability who, without reasonable programming modifications, is enrolled at FWES. The child must be self-sufficient and able to function in a group setting. Parents should notify the program administrator of any known medical conditions prior to enrollment.
The after-school program complements rather than duplicates the school day by giving children the opportunity to explore and build on individual interests and skills. Students can relax and unwind, play games, or socialize with peers and adults. There is no religious content to this program, and we encourage participation by families of all faiths.
Transportation from FWES by van, provided by Zion Baptist Church of Ambler, is included. Parents, or prearranged pick-up by a designated person, must pick up the student by 6 pm.
Hours of Operation
Monday-Friday 3:40 p.m. - 6 p.m.
