Welcoming your child after a long day
We are so honored to welcome your child to a happy and productive environment everyday after school. As they arrive, they place their belongings in their individual lockers and proceed to get ready for class. They will receive their after school snack and will be able to engage in after school activities such as reading, homework, board games or socializing with friends before class. We put safety first with everything that we do. Our K2 team members that share their afternoon with your children are CPR and First Aid certified.
K2 Martial Arts stresses the importance of homework and sets time every day for your children to complete their assignments. K2 staff is available to supervise the homework and to assist the children with their work. We encourage the children to do their homework and to use their time wisely, using the time set aside to complete.
K2 designates Friday as a day they may bring their electronic device.
K2 believes everyone deserves a fun day and so we have designated Thursdays as that kind of day for our students and they love it! Club day consists of four different stations:
- In gym sport activity
- Arts & Crafts
- Board games
- Homework club
Tae Kwon Do
Four days a week, our students will participate in a traditional class where courtesy, integrity, self control, perseverance, indomitable spirit are taught through both class structure and engagement with their peers. All children desire structure, consistency, and ritual. Martial arts improves memorization and focus. Through training they will learn how to manage their emotions by controlling on what it is the focus their attention is on, and how they focus your attention. Martial arts embraces stability and consistency, with lessons of mental focus and social intelligence. This is what makes martial arts an effective activity for children facing challenges in their educational and social lives during their developmental years.
For the Kids
In Tae Kwon Do, we train hard everyday to make our bodies strong. Because we are strong, we can choose between fighting and not fighting. In the animal world, a tiger protecting her cubs will fight ferociously because she is scared. People are similar. When we are scared, we will fight. But we must avoid fighting. Because we have become strong enough through our Tae Kwon Do training. We have confidence in ourselves and know that we can walk away from a fight. This is the most important lesson in Tae Kwon Do. We must always do our best to walk away from a fight.
It is good to practice Tae Kwon Do and train hard. At the same time though, you must also study hard at school and listen to your teachers. We feel it’s important to know how they are doing in school so we send their teacher a student assessment form when they are eligible in testing for their next belt, as this is 50% of their testing grade. At home, we encourage your kids to do their best to help parents with chores, be respectful and to be independent. We are happy to help with pep talks. Being strong only in your sport is not good enough. You must make your mind strong as well as your body.
Before & After School Program related to COVID-19
Virtually Back to School Camp- In Person, 8am drop off – 5-6pm pick up
We are doing our part by following the CDC and the American Camp Association guidelines for camp readiness and guidelines on how to run a healthy and successful camp. Please do your part and make sure to follow the CDC guidelines by NOT bringing in a camper who has a fever, headache, cough, rash, is in any way sick or has been around someone who has been sick.
Every morning at drop off, A K2 staff will take your child’s temperature and ask you a few questions before you are able to leave your child at camp. Temperature should be below 99.5. If your child’s temperature is above 99.5 or you give fever reducing meds within 24 hours,your child will not be allowed to remain at camp. Once all the criteria have been met, we will sign you in and have one of us escort the camper in and help them get situated inside K2MAA.
Assessment Testing, Please arrange for your child to take their tests at home. Children can be brought back to K2 after testing is complete.
Once in camp, the campers will be put into age appropriate groups of no more than 10 kids. Siblings can remain together at your request. We will encourage the campers to wear their face mask or face guard (we will provide) while in group settings indoors. They will be engaged in their school virtual learning and activities at their appropriate time. . We will have them wash their hands after each activity. Wipes, hand sanitizer and disinfectants are all available for cleaning. We will separate and call you if we notice your child with any of the above health conditions or has a 99.5 or above temperature reading.
Curbside Pick-up. You will be able to text 703-867-0078 or call 703-569-6969 when you are ready to pick up your child. Please try to give us a 10 minute head start so we can have our camper gather their items and make it a quick pick up.
Cleaning and Disinfecting. K2 has been training our staff to clean and disinfect their supplies, games, tables, equipment, seating, restrooms and themselves after each use and at the end of the camp day. We will also be reminding and teaching our campers to keep social distance when needed, disinfecting their face shields and washing their hands throughout the camp day. The K2 staff will be doing thorough daily cleaning and disinfecting of our facility daily and at the end of the day. We have also added UV Lights throughout the school and in our HVAC system that has been shown to kill 99.9% of bacteria including the Coronavirus.
We want to thank you for your cooperation and support. We hope your kids come home mentally stimulated and excited for more camp!
