Enrichment Program

 

Spring Enrichment Registration will begin on Tuesday, March 5th thru Wednesday, March 15th.

Each spring and fall, the PTA assembles local vendors specializing in children’s entertainment and learning to offer after-school enrichment courses. This spring we are proud to offer some of our most popular courses. This popular program is run entirely by volunteers. We move children from their homerooms to the enrichment course (located within DWS), give them a peanut-free snack and water (usually pretzels or goldfish) and then release them at the end of the session either to their pickup person or to Extended Care.

If you are interested in enrolling your child, please ensure you read all enclosed information and complete the enrollment accurately, with the accompanying payment. Only a complete, accurate enrollment form with payment can be accepted. Class sizes are limited and fill up quickly! There is one way to guarantee your slot and save 50%: commit to volunteering. Please consider giving your time to this program. The commitment is from 2:30 to 4:15 on the dates noted below.
