Students can choose to join a game on the field, take part in the daily art project, engage in a service project with the Breakwater Service Squad, or find a quiet space to do their homework or read a book.

Middle School: The Landing

The Landing is Breakwater's brand new space for Middle Schoolers after-school! 

The Landing is housed in the basement of the Jessie Building on the Breakwater campus.  Students will be able to find a quiet space to do homework, spend time with friends, or engage in a self-directed project. 

The Landing will be open from 3:00 - 6:00 PM on Mondays - Thursdays. There will be one lead after-school teacher. Select teachers from the day program will also make an appearance one afternoon a week in The Landing.

Note: As this is a new program, students enrolled in our fall semester of The Landing will help us develop our day-to-day happenings. How would our students like to spend their afternoons? What sorts of projects could we start? If we had a small budget, what kind of equipment would we invest in?
