Middle School Activities, Sports and Homework
MASH is our after-school program for students in grades 5-8. MASH stands for Middle School Activities, Sports and Homework. MASH is offered after school from 3-6 p.m., Monday-Friday.
MASH offers students a chance to get their homework done after school and free up more evening time, as well as providing opportunities for activities and socializing. MASH also accommodates participation in after school sports and clubs. You can sign up your children for MASH from 3-5 days per week, as well as on a drop-in basis if space is available.

Philosophy and Activities
MASH offers students the opportunity to do homework, socialize, play on the blacktop and take part in various activities appropriate to this age. Students can take part in ACS after-school clubs and sports, and then rejoin the MASH program when done. The program is supervised and administered by an ACS staff member. Students should bring their own snack to MASH.
Homework Center (HWC) is offered in conjunction with MASH, serving 6th-8th grade students on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday.
HWC is supervised by a Middle School teacher and is solely for doing homework. Students in HWC must be picked up by 4:20 p.m. or join the MASH program at that time. Fifth graders have opportunities to complete homework during the MASH program, separate from HWC. (Please note, HWC is no longer assigned by teachers.)
Who Can Attend
MASH is for students in grades 5-8. To reserve a spot, students may enroll in MASH for a minimum of three days per week or attend on a drop-in basis (first-come, first-served) as space allows.
