W.I.N.G.S. Afterschool Program


As an extension of The Howard School, the after school W.I.N.G.S. Program (short for Wonder, Inspire, Nurture, Grow, and Strive) is designed to continue to make learning meaningful, and therefore, maximize student success in all areas. Through a variety of after school and enrichment programs, the W.I.N.G.S. Program provides students with an opportunity to have constructive learning experiences in education, social recreation, health and fitness activities and artistic creativity, all with guidance from professionally trained staff. W.I.N.G.S. includes both after school activities and enrichment programs.

If you need additional information, please contact the W.I.N.G.S. After School and Enrichment Programs Coordinator Katherine McGee at katherine.mcgee@howardschool.org or call 404-377- 7436, extension 222.

The daily cost for participation in the W.I.N.G.S. Program is $8.00 an hour, $16.00 for the full afternoon. Students will be electronically signed-in when they arrive. It is the parent’s responsibility to sign their student out. The daily balance will be calculated based on time spent in aftercare. If a student is not signed out they will be charged the full day amount of $16.00. Additional fees are charged for Enrichment classes.
The business office will send a monthly invoice for W.I.N.G.S. Program billing. Payments are due the first business day of the month for prior services rendered. A $25.00 late fee will be added if payment is not received by the 15th of each month. If we receive a NSF check, a $35.00 return check fee will be charged.
Children should be picked up and signed out from the W.I.N.G.S. Program by 5:30 p.m. If your child is picked up after 5:30 p.m., a $1.00 per minute charge will be applied to your account until 6:00 p.m. After 6:00 p.m., a $5.00 per minute charge will be applied to your account. After three late pick-ups occur in any given one-month period, a meeting will be scheduled to discuss appropriate action. Frequent late pick-ups may result in loss of participation in the W.I.N.G.S. Program.
