Hello Parents. It’s January and it’s Winter. Which can be a tricky time for your Kindergarten through 6th Grader, because it’s a new season and it’s cold and also harder to do outdoor activities. So I have the perfect solution for you. It’s called Hangtime and it’s an after school program that has been active in Eastport for the past 6 years.
Hangtime is for elementary-aged students and it meets on Wednesdays at Eastport Bible Church from 3:30pm-5:30pm. If your child attends Eastport Elementary or Tuttle Avenue School, we will even pick them up each week. We have a snack and homework time.
One of my favorite parts of Hangtime is having so many amazing teenagers from our community that come to serve each week. They help the Hangtime kids with homework and in the various workshops and they do an amazing job!
Hangtime in the Winter is awesome, because we provide lots of opportunities for your child to be active with friends.
Each week, we also do a Bible lesson and the goal is to encourage your child to know that they are loved by God, created for a purpose and that they can do great things to help others.
At Hangtime, we also offer 45 minutes of specialized workshops. We have cooking,
Crafts and Legos
And Sports and Games too. When the weather is nice, we play outdoors, and when it’s not, the kids load the bus and go to the Tuttle Avenue gym.
Hangtime is a Screen-Free program, which means that we don’t use tablets or phones to keep our kids entertained and honestly, they do just fine. We are also a completely FREE 2 hour program, and you don’t have to pay anything for your child to attend. Finally, Hangtime is open to all K-6th Students. Registration is quick and easy and can be done at www.eastportbiblechurch.com by clicking on the Hangtime link on the home page. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to me, Laura Herr by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org. I’ve had the honor of directing this program for the past 6 years and it is my favorite part of each week.
