WHAT IS AFTER-SCHOOL ENRICHMENT?

 

PTSA volunteers organize afterschool enrichment classes as a service to the parents and students at Rosa Parks Elementary. PTSA partners with local vendors and Rosa Parks teachers to offer before and after school programs. We do this as a service to the school community. For our local vendor programs, 100% of registration fees are paid to those vendors.

 

Here's how it works: Register your child for a class. All classes are held right at Rosa Parks.  After school is dismissed, your student need only walk over to the space (commons, gym, or Art Room) where their enrichment class is offered. The class will be run by a professional instructor in their field. In addition, there will be a parent volunteer chaperoning the class to make sure your student is safe and happy until you pick them up. If your child does not show up to a class for which they are registered, we will contact you immediately.

CLASS CHAPERONES

 

All clubs must have an adult family member as a chaperon who will be on-site throughout the entire session, signing students in (and contacting the office/family if a child is absent), and signing the students out.

 

Chaperones must be Rosa Parks PTSA members, also be approved volunteers, and abide by all vaccination requirements from Lake Washington School District (LWSD). You can read more on how to register on the Volunteering in LWSD page on the LWSD website.

 

Sign up to chaperone a class and get free tuition. Contact us at programs@rosaparksptsa.org if you would like to chaperone all the dates in the session, and we'll refund the program fees!

 

If there is no available volunteer for a session, that session will need to be canceled.

 

FINANCIAL AID

 

We don't want anyone missing out on afterschool classes. Rosa Parks PTSA offers scholarships to help with these expenses. Please, contact the school counselor, Euki Hirano, for more information at ehirano@lwsd.org.

Students will go directly from their classroom to the space where the program will take place, to sign up with the program's chaperone.  

Each program has a minimum number of students who must enroll for the program to run. There is also a maximum number of students that may enroll in each program. Choir will offer a waitlist once enrollment is full

There are no refunds for before and after school programs. The only exception is if a program does not enroll the minimum number of students, a full refund will be given. Refunds will not be offered for classes within a session that must be canceled due to LWSD closure (weather, etc.) or lack of a chaperone.
