One Planet at Newton
One Planet is the afterschool program at the Newton School. From the time that kids leave the school day to our pick up at 5pm, we give kids the opportunity to socialize, try new things, and have fun! We have daily enrichment activities that allow students to have hands-on learning experiences in a relaxed and fun environment. Some examples of these activities are tennis, basketball, archery, wool felting, costume making, drama club, geography club, STEM, nature lessons, dungeons and dragons, and creative writing. In addition to our daily enrichment activities, we also give students time to socialize, eat a snack, and play together. We focus on giving students choices and allowing them to make decisions on how our program works. Our goal is to extend the learning from the school day in a fun and meaningful way.
