BASE Registration for 2015-16 Academic Year

The registration site is: www.familyid.com/wayland-school-community-programs.
When enrolling, families need to select the school and grade their child or children will be entering in the coming fall. There are separate forms for before and after school programs, so if a child will be attending both programs, two forms will need to be completed. A separate registration form is needed for each child in a family. Your registration will be complete when you pay the $60 per family annual registration fee. As you conclude the online registration process, you will see a link to make the registration fee payment online.
Registering early is always advisable since some programs fill quickly.
Before (K-5) and after school programs (K-4) are held in Claypit Hill, Happy Hollow and Loker Schools. At Wayland Middle School, there is an after school program for Grades 5 – 8. Fifth graders are bused to Wayland Middle School.

During February and April vacation weeks, Wayland School Community Programs offers programs held at Loker School for children in Kindergarten through Grade Five. Each day offers a mix of free play and scheduled activity periods for cooking, science, arts and crafts, active games, music, and more. Children also enjoy special events daily. A typical week might include field trips for mini-golf, bowling, roller skating, or indoor playgrounds.
Mask-Making was one activity during February Vacation week. Children also enjoyed learning about the phases of the moon, and drew pictures showing what the moon will look like on their birthdays. They also learned about popular children's names and toys in Venezuela. They made a popular toy: ball-in-a-cup.
Outdoor time is an important part of each day in the BASE program. Children enjoy the play structures, games like football, basketball, soccer, four-square, or baseball. It's also a great time to interact with BASE staff and each other.
TV Production is one of the after-school activities offered. Here, twin brothers Sean and Adam prepare to go on camera and present SportsTalk, a report they co-wrote about football positions. Students travel to the WayCAM (cable access) studio at Wayland High School for production sessions.
Scripts are displayed on a teleprompter for the "talent," and a member of the tech crew operates it in the control room.
Each program is unique in what it offers.
The Middle School enjoys visiting elderly residents at Traditions, walking to Cochituate Village locations, and bowling or mini-golf.
Happy Hollow's community service projects include making sandwiches for a homeless mission and brightening the recipients' day by decorating the bags with drawings, stickers, and supportive messages.
