mscr logo**After School Transportation changes for 2017-2018**

There will be a change to transportation provided by MSCR for after school programs that returning Sherman families will notice.  There will no longer be 3:35 school service Metro buses at the school (Any changes to Metro main line routes would be part of Metro schedule and not this notice).

Starting with the start of full MSCR programming on September 18th, there will be no transportation service provided during the middle of the program (other than previously schedule Metro main line routes).

MSCR will continue to provide a bussing after programming that will be leave the school at 5:00 and follow similar routes to the past MSCR 5:00 bus.

MSCR will structure programming schedules to account for these changes.

Remaining contents of this page including MSCR after school schedules, offerings and contact information will be updated as soon as possible.

Academic Programming

The first period of after-school program every Monday-Thursday is academic time.  The primary activity during this time is Study Space, which is a drop-in space for homework and quiet reading that meets every Monday-Thursday.  There is always an alternative activity for Study Space for students who do not have homework, including art, puzzles, current events, and trivia. 

In addition to Study Space, there are some specialty academic clubs led by Sherman teachers that meet at the same time as Study Space on certain days of the week.  These academic clubs include Creative Writing, Mock Trial, and Makers’ Club.

Clubs

Specialty recreation and enrichment clubs include Anime Club, Nature Explorers Club, Project UNIFY, Community Service Club, Board Game Club, and the Sherman Movement dance team.

Sports

MMSD middle school sports teams are operated by MSCR.  MSCR sports are intended to emphasize fun, learning the game, inclusion, and sportsmanship.  MSCR middle school sports are co-ed (except for basketball).   After school sports availability may vary from school to school depending on student interest, availability of coaches and availability of practice space.

Behavior Plan

Sherman MSCR programs use a “three strike” system.  Students receive a strike for breaking any program rule.  Students who receive three strikes in the same day will be suspended from all MSCR programs the following day.

MSCR provides a wide variety of programs, clubs, and sports for Sherman students during after-school hours.  Our goal is to provide students a safe and fun environment for extended learning and recreation with many opportunities to try new activities and develop new skills.  All MSCR activities are FREEexcept Ski & Snowboard Club and Horseback Riding Club.  Students are provided snack and transportation home at the end of program.  To be eligible students simply need to return an MSCR “orange card” which will be available at registration and year-round in the Sherman main office.
