After school programs

 

REGISTER HERE 

Registration for the Winter/Spring 2024 session will open Jan. 11 at 9am and will close Jan. 21 or as programs fill, whichever occurs first.

 

Registration forms can be found by signing into your PTSA account and going to My Forms/Paperwork. PTSA members will find their desired program registration forms there for each child that qualifies. Complete and submit all program registration forms in which you want to register and for each child that you would like to register. Don't forget to check out at the end! The link to your shopping cart can be found at the top of the page. 

 

Registrations will close on the cut-off date or when a program gets fully booked, whichever comes first. If spots remain in a program after the cutoff date, students may be allowed to enroll at the discretion of VP Programs and Rosa Parks PTSA will automatically add a late fee of $25 for each registration after the cut-off date.

 

 

After School Program registration is available to PTSA members only!

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 these local vendor programs, registration fees are paid to our vendors except for $1 which goes to PTSA to cover administrative costs.

 

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 by calling the phone number you have provided. Please be aware the call will likely come from a volunteer’s number that is unknown to you.

 

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. 

 

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.

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 and be LWSD-approved volunteers. 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*! 

*Available for select programs

 

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 after-school classes. Rosa Parks PTSA offers scholarships as well as membership subsidies to help with these expenses to those that qualify. Funding is limited. Please, contact the school counselor, Euki Hirano, for more information at ehirano@lwsd.org.
