Rapid City Elementary

Welcome to Rapid City!


The Rapid City SEEDS After School program operates out of Rapid City Elementary. The school is located in the beautiful, quaint town of Rapid City, on the banks of the Rapid River and nestled just southeast of Torch Lake and northeast of Lake Skegemog. 

Program & Daily Schedule

The SEEDS program is open to students in grades K-5 and operates Monday-Thursday from 2:50-5:20pm. The program operates out of two rooms, one for K-2nd grade students and a second for 3rd - 5th grade students.

Our daily schedule for both rooms includes a nutritious snack, physical recreation, group games, academic support & enrichment, a planned program/activity, and creative free play.  Some of our programs include arts & crafts, hip hop, karate, cooking, lego design, S.T.E.M. programs and much more!

The SEEDS staff will provide students with a safe and supportive environment that encourages interaction and engagement to foster healthy social, emotional, and academic growth, as well as learning new life skills through creative, hands on exploration of our world.
