After School Options

A family new to our building asked about the following.  I thought it would be beneficial for everyone.  Here are some additional options for after school hour activities for children.

After School Learning Academy: 

  • For Grades 1-4   Days: Monday & Tuesday, November 26, 2012 – April 23, 2013 from 3:00-4:30 p.m. right at Murphy Elementary

Summer Learning Academy and Camp Discovery  – Offered to students in Grades 1 – 8.


The following are not sponsored by ISD 318 or Murphy Elementary School.  They are merely shared as additional points of information.
