Our theme for the 2016-2017 school year will be “Tikkun Olam,” which means repairing the world. Beyond the Bell, with the help of the entire Mandel JCC family, will focus on a different project each month that helps support our community. Most projects will be participant driven and will also include can drives, letter writing campaigns, and more!

What is Beyond the Bell?

Your child will have a seamless transition from school day to after school, in our JCC after school program, Beyond the Bell. We give kids one-on-one attention as we promote their social, emotional, cognitive and physical development. Kids love it because we let them run off steam in the gym and outdoors, we help them with homework, get creative with art projects, play games and serve snacks. Parents love it because these enriching activities are part of a thoughtful curriculum that’s designed to engage your child while keeping the love of learning alive!
