Intramurals are just a little something extra. They exercise the body and the brain, they teach something new, and they are a great way to dabble without too much long-term commitment. Best of all, they happen right here in our TLS backyard. Find course offerings and registration by clicking above, or print out the seasonal brochure below. Intramural programs will change each semester to include new and different fun for preschool and lower school children. Watch the intramural calendar and offerings above to see the rotating fun!

Study Clinic

Study Clinic is an after-school program offered to 4th-8th graders, from 3:30-5:00 P.M. Monday through Thursday. This program is designed to help reinforce the efficiency, organization, and success of our students. It is a supervised time for students to get their homework completed with a TLS teacher available to help them. The teacher-to-student ratio is kept low so that individual needs may be met. One of the many benefits of this program is the study clinic teachers are in constant contact with their lower and middle school teaching colleagues, so they are aware of upcoming projects, quizzes and tests. Another benefit is the parental role of homework monitor is reduced, and the students leave with much if not all of their work done so that they are able to pursue other interests and/or enjoy family time. Parents are encouraged to have conversations with the study clinic staff about their child’s study habits and any specific expectations for their time in study clinic. For example, some students may need help with composition, some Math, some organization, and some just need a quiet place to get their work done. 

We invite parents and students to consider Study Clinic. Children may attend any number of days in a given week. Some students come all four days that the service is offered, while others come a couple of days a week, and some as needed. Parents do not have to sign up for the service; it’s available on a walk–in as well as a regular basis.

Students are picked up in Extended Day and walked to Study Clinic, which is conducted in the library. They are then walked up front at 5:00, or parents are welcome to come to the library to pick them up. The cost is $18 per day and is billed monthly through our Business Office. If you have questions about our program, pleased contact the Director, Jonathan Herrington.

Extended Day

The Extended Day Program is a great solution for parents who need supervised childcare before and/or after school hours. Morning drop off begins at 7:30 A.M., and after school care starts immediately after carline depending on division. After school Extended Day is offered each school day with the exception of half-days. Afternoon Extended Day offers a flexible, activity-based program for preschool through 1st grade, and a 30-minute study hall followed by playtime for 2nd through 8th grades. Snack is always provided. 

Extended Day Fees: $5 per half hour for "drop-in" (billed monthly), or "unlimited" use for $2,400 for the year (paid in full or billed monthly for 10 months). Charges for Extended Day begin to accrue at 3:15 for preschool and 3:30 for all other grades. Students not picked up by our closing time of 5:30 P.M. are charged an additional $1 per minute. 

Logistics: Please enter main entrance and check in with the front desk. Anytime after 3:15 PM, parents will pick up 3 and 4 year olds in Dr. Bowling's room (#34) and Kindergarten in Mr. Mohan's room (#37). After 3:30 PM, 1st gaders may be picked up in Mr.Mohan's room (#37), 2nd-5th grade in Ms. Puckett’s room (#46) and middle school in Mr. Herrington’s room (#14).  Billing will be mailed out monthly by our Business Office, and all payments are to be made to The Lexington School.

The safety of your children is our first priority. Students should be picked up through the main entrance. To reinforce their safety, you must sign your children out so that we know they are leaving with the proper person. They may be signed out either at the front desk or with the Extended Day Staff. If anyone other than a parent is picking up your child, please send written permission. Permission information is to be given to the classroom teacher for Lower School and to the advisor for Middle School. Identification will be checked.
