Over the years, Clearway’s after-school programming has expanded. The programming offered can vary from year to year, but during the 2016-7 the following programs were offered:
Thursday after-school social group– Students participating in this program did social activities in the community with support from our staff. Students participate in activities including bowling, mini-golf, karaoke, games, etc. This group was Clearway’s first after-school program and designed to help students develop friendships and have time to socialize. This program has operated consistently for 22 years.
After-school sports– Despite being such a small school, Clearway offered a sports team option in all 3 seasons during the 2016-2017 school-year. Seasons extended roughly 8 to 10 weeks and Clearway offered soccer in the fall, basketball in the winter, and Ultimate Frisbee in the spring. Teams are inclusive and open to all who wish to participate. Students will participate in a few games each season against other small, special education schools.
After-school art (9 weeks in the winter on Tuesdays)- Students work together to create a multi-sensory art project to be presented at Art’s Night in January. With the support of the artspecialists, students collaborate on a group art project.
After-school role-playing games (two 8-week sessions on Fridays to 2:30)- Role playing games are an exciting way for students to develop story-telling skills, understand the importance of character and plot development, and learn to work together toward a common goal. Adventures are led by Clearway staff as well as students who are experienced with the format of role playing games.
Creative Writing (8 week session. in the spring of 2017)- Students worked on creative writing projects and collected work to be included in Clearway Connections, Clearway’s literary magazine.
