School Days at The J

7:30 AM - 3:45 PM, Grades K - 6 • Starting Tuesday, Sept. 8, 2020

As schools work to finalize plans for the fall amid the COVID-19 pandemic, many districts are starting the academic year with virtual learning. To support families who need assistance while their children are engaged in virtual learning, the Mandel JCC staff has created a new program for school-age children. If virtual learning is your child’s reality this fall, the Mandel Jewish Community Center is here to help. The new School Days at The J program provides a safe, structured, enriching and socially engaging environment to help your child navigate distance learning. 

Registration is limited to ensure low student-to-staff ratios to maintain safety standards.

About the Program

School Days at The J starts September 8, 2020. The program is open to kindergarten through sixth grade students weekdays from 7:30 AM - 3:45 PM. The J’s professional staff will guide your child on the path to success for their distance learning experience. Our experienced staff will oversee students to ensure they are on task and connected to their school’s distance learning sessions and academic curriculum. 

Beyond this guiding supervision, School Days at The J offers structured activities, outdoor recreation, science, art and math electives, as well as vital peer social connections.
