In the necessary and competitive world of after school programs, McMannis is a shining light on the hill. We have 4 acres of shaded grassy free space with swings, climbing equipment, a basketball court, volleyball net and several types of sports equipment. We focus on Christian values of honesty, responsibility, respect, gratitude, cleanliness and kindness. We have a large room just for after school use that is loaded with games, books, crafts and computers. There are numerous tables that we use for homework and snack. We provide homework assistance and age-level worksheets if they don’t have any homework. They write daily in a journal. They are allowed to bring tablets, phones and other items from home to keep them busy. We discuss current events and give the kids an opportunity to share what is going on at their school. We read orally a Newbery Award winning book to the second through fifth graders. The K and first graders go to a separate room to do their worksheets, art and to play.we provide snack daily, 2 food groups. We encourage helpfulness in keeping the room clean, putting supplies away, cleaning the tables and taking the trash out. We facilitate the relationships with the preschool children late in the afternoon by encouraging play, reading and drawing with the little ones. Often, we take the school van and take the kids to Lake Vista Park or Maximo Park. We have several Bay Point Middle kids who find safety and security with us before and after they walk over to Bay Point. Many times during the year you can find us out on the sidewalk waving American flags to celebrate our great country. These kids volunteer to perform at our holiday programs in addition to what they do at school! They participate in Ash Wednesday with the pastor and we do daily devotional readings around the Christian holidays. Mad Science comes to McMannis twice a year for 6 week sessions. Come and see why the kids and parents love the relaxed and caring atmosphere at McMannis.
