PS 84 After-School Program

How our children spend their time after school is an important part of their day. It is an opportunity for them to explore new interests, develop teamwork skills, build relationships, socialize with peers and, most importantly, have fun! PS 84 students have a variety of different offerings through two vendors:

RE-Create Arts and Athletics ( )
