MANDEL JCC LAUNCHES AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAM AT PALM BEACH GARDENS AND BOYNTON BEACH LOCATIONS
PALM BEACH GARDENS, FL (April 27, 2016) – Mandel JCC of the Palm Beaches, which has earned a quality reputation for its preschool, day camp and enrichment classes, announced today it will launch an after-school program for Kindergarten through 5th grade students for the 2016-2017 academic school year. The program – called Beyond the Bell in Palm Beach Gardens and Club J in Boynton Beach – will provide a seamless transition from the school day. Children and parents can expect an environment that emphasizes one-on-one attention, and a thoughtful program that engages children with enriching, dynamic activities.
Program highlights will include supervised homework room, Judaic activities, arts and crafts, martial arts, dance, swimming, engineering for kids, Jewish music, cooking, gym and organized sports, theme days, monthly tzedakah (community service) projects, playground time, and science.

“After years of intricate planning, we are thrilled to provide local children such a robust, fun and engaging program that will utilize our entire campus in both Boynton Beach and Palm Beach Gardens,” said Rachel Fox, Program Director at the Mandel JCC in Palm Beach Gardens. “Kids will love it because we let them run off steam in the gym and outdoors, help them with homework, get creative with art projects, play games, cook, do science projects and so much more. These enriching activities are part of a thoughtful curriculum aligned to give your child an afternoon of fun while keeping the love of learning alive!”
Both programs will have private bus transportation available for children. Buses are available for Beyond the Bell from Marsh Pointe Elementary School, Timber Trace Elementary School, Lighthouse Elementary School and Beacon Cover Intermediate School. Club J in Boynton Beach will have transportation from Sunset Palms Elementary School and Manatee Elementary School. Mandel JCC staff will supervise the bus, and children will receive a snack upon arrival.
The programs offer full time care from 2:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. with the option of five days or three days a week, as well as part time care from 2:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. with the option of five days or three days a week.
