AFTER SCHOOL ACTIVITIES

In addition to the Extended Hours Program, students may also enroll in a variety of after school electives. Examples of after school classes include FitKids Sports Mix, Lemonade Stand Entrepreneurs, Tinkerlab, Chess Wizards, Joy of Dance, and Equine Lessons, among many others. Designed to be both informative and engaging, the courses available run from 6-8 weeks, rotating on a trimester basis. Offerings vary per trimester based on availability and space.

Registration for these very popular electives is available at an additional cost. They are run by knowledgeable Congressional teachers and staff as well as outside vendors, and they provide an exciting addition to students’ experience at Congressional.

Experience a pony adventure every week in this new introductory after school activity offering designed for our JK-K students. Students will learn how to groom a pony, how to lead a pony, what a pony eats, parts of a pony, and how to tell if a pony likes you. We will answer questions such as, what is the difference between a horse and a pony? Do ponies sleep standing up? Why do some ponies wear shoes and others don’t? Congressional’s very own ponies will help us discover the answers. We will finish up each day with a quick pony ride. *Note: this program is not a riding lesson. Riding Lessons are available starting at 1st grade.

Congressional Riding Academy

Horseback riding lessons are offered Monday-Friday after school. Our goal is to develop confident equestrians in a safe, fun, rider-centered environment. The Congressional Riding Academy helps students develop riding skills, gain horsemanship knowledge, and foster friendships with two and four-legged friends. We believe working with horses builds on the school’s core values of integrity, kindness, perseverance, respect, and responsibility. Lessons are private 1 on 1 for 4 weeks. Please note that due to the Pandemic lesson capacities are very limited. This is a four week program.
