Moody Elementary School offers MES EdSTREAM as a supplemental service that provides Morning Care, Afternoon Care and Monthly Workshops. Only current Moody Elementary School students are eligible for participation in MES EdSTREAM morning care, afternoon care and/or workshops. Transfer requests will not be considered. This program is optional. It is not a requirement. The program is intended to be a high quality enrichment experience, providing opportunities for growth and development of children in grades K-3rd. We will provide workshops in science, technology, reading, engineering, arts (art and music) and mathematics weekly. The purpose of these workshops is to foster creativity, build curiosity and encourage learning. If your child is enrolled in Afternoon Care, he/she will participate in these workshops.
***Other students at MES (not enrolled in afternoon care) will be able to sign up for these workshops. For example: If robotics is offered every Monday, any student at MES can sign up for four Mondays for $60.00.***

The program begins the first day of school in August and ends on the last school day in May. We do provide mini camps during certain holidays.

We will be offering a summer camp in June and July. The children enrolled in MES EdSTREAM (Morning Care and Afternoon Care) are given priority.
The program is located in the MES EdSTREAM Gym. You will enter the campus from the middle driveway. Drive around the parking lot to the awning. Follow the sidewalk to the first door. You will press the buzzer console. You will need your car tag OR a driver’s license to pick up.

Our program is funded 100% by the weekly fees. We DO NOT receive any state or federal funding.
Our staff will implement our discipline policy fairly, consistently and in a developmentally appropriate manner.
Student safety is a major consideration. Our staff will not use any form of corporal punishment.
The following procedures will be used for refocusing and redirecting a child’s behavior.
1. If a student has inappropriate behavior, a member of the staff will meet with him/her. A clear
explanation will be given of what is expected.
2. If behavior does not change, the student will be placed in “time out” for a period of time.
3. If the student fails to respond, he/she will be written up. This will require a parent conference with the
site director. The student will be dismissed from the program if written up three times.
Students Are Expected To:
1. Follow the MES EdSTREAM rules. You will receive a copy.
2. Follow the MES handbook.
3. Follow the St. Clair County Board of Education Code of Conduct.
4. Remain with the staff in designated MES EdSTREAM areas.
5. Show respect for others, staff and equipment.
Parents Are Expected To:
1. Direct all concerns to the site director.
2. Make all payments on time to the site director.
3. Pick up your child if notified of illness or disciplinary issues.
4. Present car tag or driver’s license to sign out your child each day.
5. Pick up your child by 6:00 P.M. each day.
Our program reserves the right to remove any child for inappropriate behavior.
The program will maintain a 15:1 student/staff ratio.

We also offer a Summer Camp for June and July. We take weekly trips such as Splash Adventure, movies, Lake Winnie, etc. We are open from 6:30 AM to 6:00 PM. This is a camp experience. It is very fast paced with lots of outside activities. We get hot and we sweat, but it's a lot of fun. This program is optional. The current cost is a $175 registration fee per child and a $100 weekly fee per child. The $175 registration fee covers the costs of ALL the field trips. The program is 8 or 9 weeks long. The committment is for the entire program. We do not do drop in campers or partial campers. If you sign up, you are required to pay the entire amount even if you decide to drop out early. Make sure they eat breakfast before they come, and you must send lunch with your child daily.
The director of these programs is Jason Tuggle. He has been a teacher at MES for 20 years.
