Hawk's Nest Programming

Hawk’s Nest programming is based on the philosophy that children encounter a varying amount of pressures during the school day and need time to unwind. Some children need time to read or time to do other quiet activities while others need physical activities or a place to work on homework, Some children may wish to spend time socializing with friends, while others need time to “unwind” and relax. Our goal is to meet the individual needs of the children.

The program is available to children PK-5 students who are enrolled in Woodward-Granger Community School.  We welcome and encourage diversity in our population and programs.  All families are welcome regardless of race, religion, cultural heritage, political beliefs, sexual orientation, marital status, or differing ability.  Preschool (3 and 4 year old) students may attend the program before school or after school depending on which regular school day class session they are enrolled in at Woodward-Granger. 

The program will operate year around.  In addition, the program will be open on certain days when school is closed throughout the school year.  These include a variety of school vacation days and in-service days.  The program will be closed for a number of holidays throughout the school year. Holidays included are-  Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, the Wednesday before and the following Friday, December 24, 25; New Year’s Day  Memorial Day and July 4th.
