BEST+ (Boosting & Enriching Students Today) After-School Program

Duct tape projects, ceramics, engineering, cooking, sports, field trips, oh my!

Kelly Middle School, along with the City of Eugene, offers after-school activities to Kelly students throughout the school year. This after-school program primarily focuses on helping Kelly students succeed in academics by providing homework help. In addition to extra study time, the program also features enrichment classes such as art, cooking, drama, sports and more. Activities are taught by Kelly teachers, City of Eugene instructors, local service agencies, arts agencies, and qualified individuals from the community.

A nutritious snack is provided to start things off, and then kids move on to homework club and enrichment activities. Participating students who normally ride the school bus home after school at 3:35 p.m. instead ride school buses home after the last activity at 5:35 p.m.

Program offerings change regularly. Students will sign up for new rounds of classes at school, and the classes are first-come-first-served. Tuition is $50 per term, with sliding scale fees available. No one is turned away!

Registration forms are available in the front office or click here to print the forms. Fill them out and return the forms to the office. This form gets your student signed up for the program, and they will sign up for classes at school as the program offerings change. You need only fill out this form once per school year. Even if your child was enrolled last year, you must fill out new forms. And remember, if your child needs transportation home when BEST ends at 5:30 pm, it can take up to five days to arrange (longer if your application comes in at the very beginning of the program year).

Morning BEST Homework Help

Morning BEST offers students an opportunity to get the day off right. And, it is a convenient way for parents to be assured their child has a place to go early in the day that will provide instructional support. Morning BEST is from 7:30 to 8:30 AM and meets in the Kelly Library.

To sign up for Morning BEST simply fill out the program application and write “Morning BEST Too!” on the cover at the top. If you only want Morning BEST, write “Morning BEST Only”. Once we receive your application, we will call you and let you know when your child can start.
