Before and After School Programs
K-5th Grade After School Program
The Hales Corners Lutheran before and after school program is run by Hales Corners Lutheran staff and is called Doves Bay. Doves Bay is an acronym which stands for Days Off Vacation Education and Before and After Youth. The Elementary School Dove's Bay program includes both the before and the after school programs and the activities and field trips offered on days the students do not have school. The Dove's Bay program also provides the Summer Recreation program offered Monday through Friday June through August.
