Afterschool Program (ASP)


Feb 2019

Dear Parents,

Welcome back, from our Parents’ Association After School Program Committee!

P.S. 144's After School Program is run by the Central Queens Y on Mondays and Tuesdays*. On Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays, the After School Program is run by parent volunteers as part of the Parents’ Association. The program is run on P.S. 144's premises all five days and goes from dismissal to 5:50 pm. For the CQY program, please see the message on the bottom of this page for more information. For the PA-run program, including schedule, online registration, and FAQs, please see links on the right hand side of this page.

Open Enrollment has ended. You can still enroll for the Spring 2019 semester, but your enrollment will be subject to a $10 Late Enrollment fee and delayed placement by 1-2 weeks.

Please note that as of Friday, 3/15/19 (3 weeks into the Semester), you will no longer be issued a cash refund for dropped classes, but will instead receive a credit toward future semesters.

The Spring 2019 After-School semester began on Wednesday 2/27/19 and ends on Friday 6/21/19.

If you are unable to register online and need a hard copy of the registration form, a limited number are available in the Main Office.

We hope you have a great semester,

The After School Program Committee
