Ethan Dschaak, principal

Welcome to the Capable Kids after-school program of the Meade School District. You are welcome to visit, participate, and share in your child's fun activities at any time. No child will be discriminated against because of race, color, national origin, age, or disability.


We look forward to partnering with you so your child can have a safe, quality, supervised after-school experience with a multitude of activities. Your child will be served a nutritious snack each day and participate in crafts, games, sports, arts, technology and field trips. We pride ourselves in providing enrichment and academic experiences to nurture, stimulate, and develop each student's cognitive and physical skills.


Please review the parent handbook information so you and your child are familiar with the goals, expectations, and school policies. Please address any inquiries to the teacher or Principal Ethan Dschaak at 787-5295. It is essential that good communication exist between the family and those involved in the program. Your concerns and questions are welcome.


Please Note: Due to high enrollment, there is a waiting list for new students to join this program. You may still sign up your child; we will then communicate with you once a spot opens up. Thank you for your understanding.
