After a two-year hia­tus due to the COVID pan­dem­ic, Island Rec’s Study Time and After­noon Recre­ation (STAR) pro­gram returns to Fri­day Har­bor Ele­men­tary School on Mon­day, March 21.

“The STAR pro­gram serves a crit­i­cal need for ele­men­tary age after-school child­care in our com­mu­ni­ty, and we know how impor­tant it is for Island Rec to get this pro­gram up and run­ning again”, said Mad­die Ovenell, Direc­tor of Island Rec.

STAR serves chil­dren from kinder­garten through grade five. It oper­ates out of the ele­men­tary school cafe­te­ria each school day from 2:45 p.m. to 6 p.m., as well as ear­ly dis­missal days from 11:10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Oper­at­ed by three Island Rec staff mem­bers, the pro­gram offers free play, a vari­ety of orga­nized recre­ation­al and edu­ca­tion­al activ­i­ties, and struc­tured home­work time, as well as a dai­ly snack.

STAR costs $12.50 per day on reg­u­lar school days and $18.25 for each ear­ly dis­missal day. Par­ents must sub­mit an appli­ca­tion to Island Rec pri­or to their chil­dren attending.
