The Afterschool Program at The Towne Creek School provides a safe and enriching environment for children in Kindergarten through Seventh Grade. Children are encouraged to participate in new experiences while working on skills such as team-building, self-esteem, independence, confidence, friendship, and leadership. We strive to meet the children’s social, emotional, physical and cognitive needs via multiple options from which they choose on a daily basis. You can be assured, at The Towne Creek School, there is always something for everyone!

Fort Bend ISD Inservice Days / Holidays / Early Dismissal
Fort Bend ISD has several closures throughout the school year including staff development days, holidays and early dismissals. Fortunately for us, we have the opportunity to share this time with our afterschool students. There are no additional fees required for these particular days, unless a field trip is planned. Often we plan a special event, such as: Towne Creek Olympics, Lock-UP, Gross Factor, Spy Hard, Doggy Dog World, Pajama Day and the list goes on….
Field Trips / Community / Environment
Our program is enhanced by a variety of age appropriate field trips planned with the interest of the children in mind. These field trips are planned when the children are with us for the full day. Some of the past trips have included Laser Zone, Bowling, Star Cinema and ice skating. In addition, we provide opportunities for the students to participate in community and environmental service projects.
AFTERSCHOOL AWESOME OPTIONS
Our program is jam-packed with OPTIONS catering to the varied interests of our students. By offering 3 or 4 options on a daily basis, we are able to keep the children’s curiosity alive. Some of the options may include, yet are not limited to, the following:
We not only assist the children with their homework and studying, but also encourage children to enjoy quiet activities such as reading in a quiet and peaceful atmosphere. This is the only option that is offered daily except for Fridays.
From the free drawing of the most abstract pictures, to the backdrop creations for an upcoming afterschool performance, our creators will be learning a variety of art techniques and utilizing a wide range of art media. They will be challenged in such areas as painting, crafts, cartooning and other artistic media.
Are you ready for some football? Do you want to be taken out to the baseball game? Answer these questions by participating in this option. Whether your child participates in scatterball, kickball, hockey or more, keep in mind that sportsmanship is most important in learning how to lose, win and be part of a team.
For those who like the spotlight, having a chance to be on television will be just the ticket. We have filmed some of the most memorable commercials ever! So whether you would like to be in front of the camera or behind the scenes, afterschool students love this option.
Find out how important it is to use the right ingredients and amounts when creating a recipe. Hopefully, the brownies, cookies, pizza, donuts, grasshoppers, and other goodies are yummy! We will make healthy foods as well and keep a nutrition charge and recipe book throughout the year.
This option is designed to promote cooperation. Despite age, size, gender, strength and other attributes that may be different between us, Challenge creates an environment in which everyone is needed to accomplish a goal.
Stay in shape and release built up energy by skipping rope, trying step aerobics, or participating in basic, yet light weight training. Feel the burn and feel good about it.
We don’t always know why things happen the way they do, but it is fun trying to figure it out! We’ll build volcanoes, make flubber, plant flowers and create bottle tornadoes and continuously investigate the wonders of science.
It’s great to be you, but it can be really exciting to be someone else! Whether you are the hero or the villain, you are acting! There can never be too much drama when choosing this option!
The students will become more familiar with Microsoft software such as Word, PowerPoint, or Excel and Mac Software from the iLife series (depending on age and ability).
Towne Creek Tells
Students will be able to utilize their interest in writing, interviewing, photography, the computer and more by publishing their own newsletter.
Air Hockey, Foosball, Ping Pong and some video game systems are among the main attractions of our game room. But never underestimate the fun that can be had playing a board game with your friends.
Wall of Fame
Here is your chance to leave your legacy at Towne Creek. You could be the fastest student to ever ride a tricycle fifty feet or hold the record for the most ping pong games won in a row. Perhaps you will become the jump rope champion or part of a group that placed the most children in a hoola hoop. You may be recognized for helping a friend in need or welcoming a new student. Everyone has the opportunity to be recognized on the Wall of Fame.
