Afterschool Registration Now Open!

Greetings! Registration is underway for Fall with a new schedule and expanded offerings!


Because of the change to the PS 9 dismissal time, we are adjusting the afterschool schedule as well. The afterschool will be providing 30 minutes of additional coverage (between 2:50 and 3:20) but we have not increased prices. The cost for a child enrolled in one enrichment and one homework session each day of the week will remain $1900...about $9.50 per hour.


The New Schedule:

From dismissal until 3:10 will be snack time.

From 3:10 to 4:30 will be the EARLY enrichment session.

And from 4:30 to 5:50 will be the LATE enrichment session.

Pickup will be between 5:50 and 6:00 PM.


With this change in schedule we are also expanding our offerings!


A newly launched Chess Team will be training during the LATE session on both Monday and Wednesday to support and develop our players as they work to attain national ranking and even compete at Nationals in Nashville next spring, May 8th to 10th.


Other new classes added include Roller Hockey, Skateboarding, Mandarin Chinese, Break Dancing, and Ultimate Frisbee.


In the technology area, Ms. Friedman's students will create circuits and build cool devices in her LittleBits class offered on Thursday.


In the musical theater department, Jeff will direct West Side Story on Monday and Willy Wonka on Wednesday and, of course, will reprise his First Steps to Musical Theater class for K-1 students on Friday.
