• Welcome to Elizabeth School District's Kids Club!

    Kids Club is Elizabeth Schools' before and after school program available at Running Creek Elementary and Singing Hills Elementary. Students currently attending elementary school (K-5) through the summer after their fifth-grade year are able to participate in the program. 

    We offer a mix of structured and unstructured time for children before and after school, as well as a full summer program that includes bus field trips, walking field trips, arts and crafts, science and math activities, and special guests. We work within the ADA standards to make every effort to meet the needs of all children; however, our setting may not work for every child. 

    Kids Club Program Belief Statements

    • Children are capable learners; therefore, adults should have high expectations for them.
    • Children learn through active exploration.
    • Children should be allowed the freedom to come into his or her own being by exploring, manipulating, discovering and relating to the world.
    • Children’s engagement in activities should support the Elizabeth Schools' kindergarten – 12th-grade continuum in literacy, numeracy, explore (science, social studies and health), and technology.
    • Our curriculum should emphasize the integration of all areas of development including language, fine motor, gross motor, cognitive (literacy, numeracy, problem-solving), social and emotional and self-help skills.
    • Our program offers individualized and developmentally appropriate activities in a safe environment.

    Kids Club participates in the Positive Behavior Supports (PBS) initiative sponsored by CDE and ESD.  Major components of PBS include: positively stated expectations for all students and staff, procedures for teaching these expectations to students, students are recognized for displaying positive behaviors.  Kids Club uses the acronym PAWS for helping with student retention of these expectations.

    P = Positive Attitude
    A = Act Responsibly
    W = Willing to Participate
    S = Safe Choices
