Afterschool Program (ASP)

June 2019

 

Dear Parents,

Planning for the Fall 2019 After School Program is almost complete!  We are very excited to welcome back popular classes and introduce some new, exciting options. Please note the following information only applies to the Parents’ Association volunteer-run After School Program (ASP) on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. PA Volunteers run the ASP in conjunction with school faculty, staff, and outside vendors. 

 
Preview
: The Fall 2019 Schedule for the PA-run After School Program has been published for a preview period. Please note this schedule may be subject to change.
Enrollment: Open enrollment will begin at 9pm on June 17th (please note time change from the paper PA calendar).
Fall 2019 Semester: The Fall 2019 PA After School Program starts on Wednesday, 9/18/19 and ends on Friday, 2/14/20.


 Open Enrollment will be held on a first-come, first-served basis. You are strongly encouraged to enroll early for several reasons:

  • In order to ensure an enriching and positive experience for all students, we may cap the overall capacity of the After School Program. 
  • It is also very likely that some classes (especially our most popular ones) will reach capacity and may be closed to additional enrollment. 
  • Although Open Enrollment occurs throughout the summer, we may be making the first round of decisions about adding or cancelling classes by June 24th based on our enrollment numbers at that time.


Congratulations to the five winners of our Early Enrollment Raffle:

Bruno Varela
Rachel Wolman
Fadila Sarajlic
Ankush Kumar
Melissa Katz

 

A tremendous THANKS to everyone who participated!  All proceeds of the raffle will go towards the PA-funded Residencies.

 All enrollment for the PA-run After School Program will be carried out through JackRabbit, our enrollment platform. For details on how to register and enroll in classes, please visit the Registration and Enrollment guide. Please be sure to read the guide thoroughly and make sure you have an accessible JackRabbit account prior to enrollment.  As always, a lot of our information is available in our Frequently Asked Questions document. 

We look forward to a new and exciting program.

Sincerely,

Elisa Cheng and Sonia Duchatellier, Co-Vice Presidents, After School Program
