MPS Before & After School Programs

The Malden Public Schools will continue to provide comprehensive before and after school programming that was previously overseen by PCSM for the past nineteen years. Through our varied and flexible programming, we support and challenge the physical, social, and intellectual growth of each student. Our academic activities support the work students do during the school day; and our recreational activities foster sportsmanship, healthy competition, teamwork, and fair play. All programs provide students with activities that promote healthy lifestyle choices and help decrease risky behaviors.

Before and After School programs are now available at the Beebe, Forestdale, Linden, and Salemwood Schools with offerings for grades K-5 and 6-8. Programs include school-year and summer enrichment opportunities as well as February and April vacation camps. The Early Learning Center will also offer before and after school programming.

Registration Information

Registration for all programs will be available online mid-August. Please keep checking back for updates!

All programs begin on Tuesday September 4th with a rolling registration throughout the school year.
