Beacon Application now open and due August 4!

Beacon is a free, DYCD-funded program that serves grades K-5 hosted in our school but space is limited and slots are filled via lottery. Their program will begin on Monday, 9/18. Programming goes until 5:45 p.m. on Monday-Friday, and they require that students attend at least 4 out of 5 days per week and stay for the duration of the program daily.

  • Beacon is released their application TODAY, 7/27 and the deadline to apply for this year will be next Friday, 8/4. A new application is needed every year for all interested families.

  • Please find the application form HERE.

  • Completed applications can be e-mailed to, or brought in person to the Beacon office, located inside the 3rd Ave entrance of our building, during school hours (M-F, 9 a.m. - 5 p.m.) Please note this is a different process than last year’s online application.

  • Beacon staff will send out results of the lottery to confirm whether or not families have a spot in mid-August.

  • Families may continue to submit applications after 8/4 to be added to a waitlist that will still be lottery-based. If there is availability remaining, Beacon will reach out to families on the waitlist within the first few days of school to communicate if they can offer a seat.

  • If you have Beacon-specific questions, please e-mail director, Maribel Mejia at or assistant Director, Yvette Perez at

More information about after school programs will be coming soon! Please check back in mid-August!
