What We Do

The Greenvale Park Community School provides free, out-of-school time programming for students and families. The Greenvale Park PLUS program and other clubs are hosted after school for students, and on Tuesday and Thursday nights we host activities for the whole family. Please scroll down for our calendar of events, activities and volunteer opportunities.

With the expansion of Community School at Bridgewater Elementary and Spring Creek Elementary, a new and improved web page is being created in order to encompass all three sites.  At this time please follow us on Facebook for further information and updates.  Thank you!

About Us

A community school is both a place and a set of partnerships between the school and other community resources. Using public schools as hubs, community schools bring together many partners to offer a range of support and opportunities to children, youth and families. The integrated focus on academics, health and social services, youth and community development, and community engagement, leads to improved student learning, stronger families and healthier communities.
