Hoboken Charter School

After School Enrichment Program

Dear HCS Families,

We are happy to announce that HCS will continue to offer after school clubs for the 2022-2023 school year. Please see below for more information:

Enrichment Clubs

  • Clubs will run on a trimester basis. Once registration for clubs opens, families will have several days to make selections for their child(ren). We will use a lottery process to fill spots in clubs in which the number of students interested in participating exceeds the number of seats.

After Care

  • In addition to enrichment clubs, HCS will continue to provide after care daily for students until 5:30 pm.

  • This after care program and cost is separate from trimester clubs, which will remain an additional fee. Those offerings will be sent out at the beginning of the school year for the first trimester.

  • There will be two options to participate in after care:

    • Option 1 - Extra Innings: Sign up as a club on a trimester basis.

    • Option 2 – Drop In After Care: No prior commitment or pre-registration is necessary. Please print and complete the Drop-In form as needed (daily, weekly, or monthly) and send to school with your child, along with the check. The form could be found on this website and a hard copy could be obtained from the main office. In the case of an emergency, where you need aftercare on the same day, you must inform Ms. Gigi Girgis (ggirgis@hobokencs.net, 201-963-0222, ext. 212 the morning your child will need to stay in aftercare. Payment is due at the time of pick-up or the following morning. $15/hour per child, no sibling discount, must pay $15 for partial hours (e.g. drop in from 3:00-4:15 would be $30/child).

Movie Day

  • On the monthly Thursday 1:00 days (with the exception of June 8, 2023), students can participate in Movie Day, by signing up at our enrichment website, or include the two hours on your drop-in form. The hourly rate for movie day is $15 per hour, same as drop-in. Movie Day runs from 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm. Students who are signed up in advance for Thursday clubs and after care will stay until the regular pick up time. All other students will be dismissed at 3:00 pm. Absolutely, no reservation via email or phone.

Additional Information

  • Please see the tabs "Policies & Procedures" and "Club Offerings" for more information about the program this year.

  • Our Tax ID number is 22-3517040.

We are excited to be able to continue to provide enrichment opportunities to our students and families. Please reach out to Gigi Girgis (ggirgis@hobokencs.net) with any questions.
