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

Duct tape projects, ceramics, engineering, cooking, sports and more!

Kelly Middle School, along with City of Eugene and School Garden Project, offers after-school activities to Kelly students throughout the school year. This after-school program primarily focuses on helping Kelly students succeed in academics. 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.

After a study period, a nutritious snack is provided, then kids move on to enrichment activities. Participating students who normally ride the school bus home after school at 3:30 p.m. ride school buses home after the last activity at 5:30 p.m.

Program offerings change every five weeks. Students will sign up for new rounds of classes at school, and the classes are first-come first-served. The cost of the program is a sliding scale. For a five week session, the cost is $25 if your student is not eligible for free or reduced lunch, $10 if your student is eligible for reduced lunch, and free if your student in eligible for free lunch. That being said, no student will be turned away for inability to pay fees.

Registration forms are available in the front office, or you can click here for English or here for Spanish print, fill out and return the form 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.

• Attend a fun 6th grade orientation day

School Socials

There are three school socials every school year. These events features a variety of activities designed for students to practice social skills and have fun while increasing their positive bonding to school. Activities may include such things as craft-making, games, and of course dancing while a live DJ spins tunes. We encourage all students to participate.

River Walk

At the beginning of every school year it is the tradition of all Kelly students to participate in a combined fitness walk and fund raiser. Students get monetary pledges from family members, neighbors, staff members, and friends. Then by Homerooms, they walk from Kelly down to Alton Baker Park along with their teachers and parent volunteers. There they take a break with a free barbeque lunch (food is donated by community businesses). Then comes the long walk back to school. After all the pledge money is turned in, students get to celebrate by attending the RiverWalk Party – a great evening fun event, with miniature golf, karaoke, pizza, and (of course) a dance.

The money students raise is split three ways 1) in support of their various student social activities throughout the school year (dances, speakers, field trips, etc.), 2) in support of classroom learning activities (supplies, materials, etc.), and 3) as a reward the staff members who organized the event by giving them extra school program resources. We appreciate the participation of our community in making our school a great place for learning.
