Friends After School Together

Welcome to the FAST Club program!

SME's FAST Club is an after school care program for our students.


St. Mary's extended day care is a ministry of St. Mary's Elementary School and provides after-school care to the students enrolled at St. Mary's Elementary School. Our FAST Club seeks to see children achieve a balanced growth physically, emotionally, and intellectually by creating an environment of love and trust.


Here a child can learn by group participation, self-expression, and one-on-one interaction with an aide in his/her own way. It is our desire to be an extension of the home to reinforce the values and character development begun at home. We encourage a good working relationship between the home and the school.



Students meet for FAST Club in the cafeteria. Multiple aides are present to provide an environment that is safe and enjoyable. Activities include art, board games, video movies, and academic time. Students during academic time will either work on their homework, read a story or participate in an academic approved activity (example: creating a book).
