Crocker After-School Enrichment Classes and Registration Information
Coordinated by the PTA, the Crocker After-School Enrichment Program offers students and families quality experiences to supplement their education in the classroom. A wide range of classes are offered each semester depending on space availability and popularity. Each class is run by an independent contractor who establishes the curriculum, schedule and fee. To learn more about or register for any particular class, please locate the registration flyers link posted below the schedule.
SCHEDULE & CLASS TIMES
Each after school class has its own schedule. Please make careful note of the dates of each session, meeting times and rooms for your child’s class. Classes will not be held on school holidays. The class schedule is subject to change.
We’re very excited to be piloting a second shift of programs on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Please be sure to take note of the different start/end times on these days.
REGISTRATION & FEES
Registration will open at 10 am on Thursday, August 25th. In fairness to other Crocker families, please do not attempt to register early.
There is a limit of 2 programs per student for the first week of registration. This makes the enrollment process more equitable and gives more Crocker students a chance to participate. The restriction will be lifted on Thursday, September 1st at 10 am. The registration deadline for all programs is Friday, September 9th.
Click here for the individual registration flyers for each class once registration is open. Class registration is directly arranged with the provider. Specific instructions on how to enroll and make payments are noted on each flyer. All classes have limited number of spots, so it is recommended that you enroll early to secure a space for your child.
Limited financial scholarships are available for our enrichment programs. Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to request an application and obtain more details. To be considered for the upcoming session, applications must be complete and submitted to the principal’s office no later than Friday, September 9th, 2016.
DROP-OFF AND PICK-UP
Please make sure that solid arrangements are in place for your child to get safely to his/her after-school class and to be picked up promptly once class is over. Kindergarteners will be picked up by the class instructors directly from their teachers at dismissal. Parents of children who attend after-school classes and are also enrolled in after-school care (e.g. Adventure Time, Lakeshore Children’s Center, JCC) should make arrangements with the after-school care provider to make sure that the transition to and from class is supervised. Please let the after-school instructors know who is responsible for picking up your child after class.
ON-SITE & OFF-SITE AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAMS
Crocker families have a variety of before and after-school programs available to them, including on campus and local off-site providers All programs offer walking or van pickup for participating students from Crocker Highlands Elementary at the end of the school day, and most offer homework help, snacks, enrichment programs and activities. These programs are not affiliated with Crocker Elementary in any way.
The After-School Enrichment classes are NOT school-sponsored programs. Please follow these guidelines to ensure a positive experience with the classes:
1. Questions: To discuss issues related to a specific class, speak directly to the instructor or sponsoring organization. Please do not contact the school office.
2. Class Cancellations: It is the responsibility of the instructor to notify families of a cancelled class. Occasionally, there are last minute cancellations due to traffic/car problems, sudden illness or personal emergencies. It is very important to teach your child what to do if the instructor does not arrive as scheduled. For example, kids enrolled in Adventure Time might go to AT for drop-in, while other kids may go to the school office to call a parent for pick up. Please note there will be no adult to supervise children in the event an instructor does not show up.
3. Getting to and from classes: Your child should know how to find the class and know what the arrangements are for after-class pick up. For safety reasons and out of respect for the teacher’s time, it is imperative that your child is picked up on time.
4. Class Behavior: These classes are a special privilege designed for the enjoyment of the Crocker children. To benefit fully from the classes, all children must cooperate with the instructor to ensure that the class runs smoothly. Recommendations to the teachers for behavior difficulties are as follows: a) one written warning if a child seriously misbehaves in class b) a request to drop the class if the child has persistent behavior problems. No refunds will be provided in this instance.
