Beyond the Bell Registration

Beyond the Bell logoBeyond the Bell is an after-school program created by the South Orange Maplewood School District’s Parenting Center. Beyond the Bell is designed to help all students stretch and grow by coordinating, deepening and expanding after-school opportunities at the elementary level.

The winter session will begin in January 2018. Students will be introduced to a wide variety of subjects and activities, taught by enthusiastic and experienced instructors in a comfortable and familiar environment. Some of the instructors are SOMSD teachers and parents; others come to us from the wider community.

The registration packets were sent home via backpacks. An electronic copy is also available. Classes fill up quickly since most classes have 12 available spaces.

Online registration began Monday, Dec. 11, at 7am. The online registration process shows class availability and you will get confirmation of your class registration as soon as payment is finalized.

You can also send the paper registration form in through your child’s backpack beginning December 11th. Your child’s first choice class may no longer be available by the time paper registrations are received and processed, so it is important to indicate 2nd and 3rd choice options.

If you have any questions, please email Christina Waldon at

We look forward to welcoming your children to our after school classes in January!
