After the Bell

After the Bell (ATB) is a comprehensive on-site after-school program serving our students, grades K–8.

Daily Drop-In Program

Our Daily Program is available to Trinity K–8 students on school days until 6 p.m. It's a sign-in/drop-in program with no registration requirements. Participating students enjoy a snack and choose from daily activities, with the opportunity to rotate to a second or third activity depending on the length of their stay. Regular activities include study lab and outdoor recreation, and rotating activities categories include creative arts, design, Lego, theater games, design and social/collaborative pursuits. With a convenient sign-in/drop-in policy, students may take part in this program any day of the week for any duration of time and around other scheduled extracurricular activities.
