About the Riley After School Program

The Riley after school program provides students with a fun, educational, and safe environment, where they can create friendships, discover new interests, and develop lifelong character. During the after school program our dedicated team offers a variety of activities for your student(s) these include: homework help, arts and crafts, physical education, computer time, piano/guitar lessons, and field trips. At the end of the day, your student will be served a hot meal provided by the Utah Food Bank.
Along with the enrichment activities listed above, the Riley after school program is happy to announce our partnership with the Mundi Project that makes it possible to offer your student(s) an opportunity to learn how to play the piano or guitar (depending on the age group), while developing love and appreciation for music. 
A little bit about the Mundi Project: Mundi Project, a nonprofit community music organization, is proud to partner with Salt Lake City School District to provide students of Riley Elementary with quality group piano and classical guitar classes after school twice a week as part of our Harmony Hub program. Classes are led by professional music educators and offer Riley students a blend of current technology and traditional teaching methods to experience the fundamentals of music and performing together. For 2019-2020, participation in after school music classes is based on registration. Visit our classroom during Back to School Breakfast to meet our teaching artists for a mini performance and try out the piano and/or guitar!
