AFTER SCHOOL ENRICHMENTS

Our students appreciate extra opportunities to be with their friends and participate in activities that they are especially interested in.

In addition to participating in our NIAL and LHSAA Athletic offerings, CES is also proud to offer parents a variety of organized after school enrichment experiences. Contact your child’s divisional office for additional information and availability as spaces fill quickly.

CES also offers an aftercare program at both the ECC and CBC campuses. During aftercare, students have a snack, complete homework, and enjoy supervised play on the school grounds. ECC students may take the shuttle to CBC to participate in the aftercare program there if that is more convenient for the family.
