Cat Pack Academy – Cat Pack Academy is in direct response to the hybrid and distance learning schedules that USD 263 has implemented. Cat Pack Academy is dedicated to providing local community students and parents a safe option for child care during the day that includes meals, snacks, homework help, and physical activities. We have three different attendance options available based upon your students’ learning needs:
- Hybrid Learning ($75/week) is for those families who will be physically attending in-class schooling. Students will be at the MRC weekly during the times they are not scheduled to be at school.
- Distance Learning ($125/week) is for those families who are fully committed to online schooling. Students will be at the MRC every weekday during the entire duration of their schooling hours.
- Day-to-Day Learning ($25/day) is for those families who don’t necessarily need their students at the MRC every day for the entire week. This option allows families to pick and choose specific days based on their individual needs.
All Day Programs – All day programs at the MRC take place on days that USD 263 has scheduled closures for inservices, breaks, and some holidays. There will not be All Day Programs on Thanksgiving or Christmas. These programs typically have a small, nominal activity fee for things such as theatre tickets and field trip costs.
Cat Trax: Summer Rec – Summer child care at the MRC gives our Cat Pack students the ability to choose what track they want to pursue each week during the summer. Cat Trax is divided into three primary categories: Science, Sports, and Arts. Within each category every week, there’s always a new and fun activity associated with that category. Summers are both educational and fun at the Mulvane Rec!
Kitten Care – While parents or guardians work out, they can drop-off their kids in MRC Kitten Care. MRC staff will supervise and monitor the safety of the children through play-based activities. Activities include crafting, imagination play, bubbles, nature walks, and gym time. $20 per 10-punch card.
