ESP Overview

The Extended School Program is available for Thompson elementary students in grades kindergarten through grade five. The program is available Monday through Friday and follows the public school calendar. ESP begins at 7:00 AM in the commons. The atmosphere of the morning program is very relaxed. The students choose board games to play until they go to breakfast at 8:05 AM. When they have finished with breakfast, they go to the small gym until their classroom is open at 8:15 AM.

The afternoon program begins at 3:15 PM. Each day begins with a 15 minute outdoor recess when weather permits.

  • Kindergarten and first grade have centers two days per week. The other days are filled with Physical Education, Character Education, and Arts and Crafts.

  • Second, third, & fourth grades focus more on big projects, such as building bridges, learning how to play chess, science experiments, and art projects.

At 5:00 PM all ESP students meet in the commons for check out time. They choose a board game to play until they are checked out by their parents. All ESP students must be picked up by 5:30 PM.
