Extended-Day Activities: Three days per week students participate in fun Extended-Day Activities. Note that TEP does not contract its extended-day program to outside providers; instead TEP teachers develop and fully staff the extended-day activities.
These quarter-long extra-curricular activities are designed to be fun and develop a sense of community. Each teacher designs and leads one extra-curricular activity; at the beginning of each quarter, each student ranks his or her preferences from a list of the various extended-day activities being offered; each student is assigned to one activity each quarter, taking into account that student’s preferences. Examples of extended-day activities include sports, art, chess, musical theater, news crew, and photography.
