Clean up

First through Fifth Grade Study Hall  

The Extended Day Program offers a formalized study hall from 3:00 4:00 p.m. for students in first through fifth grade, Monday-Friday. During study hall students have the opportunity to work on their homework and seek help from English and Chinese teachers. Although there are teachers available to answer questions about Chinese and English homework, students are encouraged to develop independent study skills. 

Extended study hall hours are offered to students in fourth through eighth grade who are registered for prepaid full day if their homework is not complete at the conclusion of the study hall hour. Tutoring is available to students who require additional assistance. Please contact Kevin Lee at k_lee@cais.org to request a tutor. Additional fees apply.

Study Hall Rules 

  • Students must bring all homework materials and a recreational reading book to study hall. 
  • Students will sit at assigned tables. 
  • Students will raise their hands for a teacher’s help.
  • Students will remain in their seats until given permission to leave. 
  • A student’s failure to comply with any of these rules will result in a behavior slip being sent home for a parent’s signature. 
  • Repeated violation of these rules will result in a meeting with the student’s parents and temporary suspension from the Extended Day Programs without a refund.  

Activities/Recess Rules 

  • Students will respect the staff and other students in the extended day program. 
  • Students will be respectful and listen when they are being given instructions. 
  • No fighting. If there is a dispute, students should bring it to the attention of the extended day staff. 
  • Games and crafts are to be shared.
  • Students are not to exclude anyone from activities.
  • Students may not leave the area unless given permission by the extended day staff. 

Parent Involvement 

Parents are encouraged to help make the pick up process as smooth as possible. Please help by not disturbing other students. Parents should not work alongside their children in study hall. If parents wish to work with their children, they should seek out one of the two school libraries. Parents should hold their conversations with other parents outside of the study hall classroom. 

Accountability 

It is important that all students are accounted for each day. If your child is participating in any activity that requires them to leave the extended day supervision (excluding enrichment classes), such as after school athletics, tutoring, or something similar, please inform the auxiliary program director so we may make a note of it and communicate with the extended day staff. 

Additional Notes

  • Chinese teachers and teaching associates will only speak Chinese during extended day.   
  • Students in fourth and fifth grade who are registered for pre-paid full day extended care may have study hall extended in a dedicated study hall only location until 5:00 p.m. if homework or studying is not complete at the conclusion of the study hall hour. 
  • Students in fifth grade who are registered for either full day extended care or study hall will be allowed to use the third floor library between the hours of 3:30 – 5:00 p.m. if homework is complete.
