A message about the After School Enrichment ("ASE") Clubs Program:
GRADY ELEMENTARY PTA SPRING AFTER SCHOOL ENRICHMENT CLUBS
BEGIN THE WEEK OF TUESDAY, JANUARY 22, 2019 AND END THE WEEK OF MAY 13, 2019
Dear Grady Parents,
Registration for spring after school enrichment clubs will open on Friday, December 21. Clubs will begin the week of January 22, 2019 and will end the week of May 13, 2019. There will be 11 Monday club sessions; 16 Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday club sessions, and 14 Friday club sessions. There will be no Monday clubs on the following days as they are non-student days: January 21, February 18, March 4, March 18 (spring break is the week of March 18-22), March 25, and April 8. There will be no Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday clubs on March 19, 20, or 21 as that is the week of spring break. There will be no Friday clubs on the following days as they are non-student days: February 8, March 22 (spring break is the week of March 18-22), and April 19.
In addition to the clubs offered this fall, we are excited to offer three new clubs for the spring session: chess through Board One Chess Academy, baseball through Alpha Baseball Academy, and a Believe in You series through Girls with Confidence. To review a complete list of our spring club offerings, please visit our website at http://gradytigers.org/ase-club-list. Registration and payment are on a first-come, first-serve basis. You may register and pay online at https://gradytigers.org/ase-club-signup. You may register one student for multiple clubs at the same time, but you must do a separate registration for each student. Online registration requires use of our CISCO-Certified secure link to pay by credit card (all major credit cards are accepted). All clubs have a maximum number of students that are permitted to enroll and many clubs fill up quickly. Online registration allows you to know immediately whether a particular club is full. If, however, you want to pay by check or in installments, paper registration forms are available in the front office.
With the exception of the robotics team (which meets for 2 hours), all clubs meet for one hour after school. Students are given 20 minutes after school to transition from classes to clubs. They are encouraged to bring a snack and a drink to have during this transition time. Students in athletic clubs are required to bring water to drink during the club. Monday clubs begin at 1:15 pm and end at 2:15 pm. Tuesday through Friday clubs begin at 2:15 pm and end at 3:15 pm. At the end of the club, students enrolled in the YMCA after care program will be escorted to the cafeteria. All other students will be escorted to the car line pick up. You must have a car line tag displayed in your vehicle to pick up a student from an after school enrichment club. Third-party after care providers may pick up students enrolled in after school enrichments programs from the car line, however, you must make separate arrangements with your after care provider. If you need an extra car line tag, please obtain one from the front office.
Late Pick-Up: If you are more than 15 minutes late picking up a student from an after school enrichment program, you must pay the After School Enrichment Club Coordinator a $20 late fee in cash prior to the next club session. Repeated late pick-up of a student will result in termination of your student’s participation in the club program.
Requests to Switch Clubs: We will grant requests to switch clubs so long as those requests are made prior to the second club meeting.
Code of Conduct: Grady Elementary’s student code of conduct applies during after school enrichment clubs, and students are expected to adhere to that code of conduct. A student’s participation in after school enrichment clubs is at the sole discretion and permission of the Grady Elementary PTA. The Grady Elementary PTA reserves the right to exclude or remove students from one or more clubs based upon such conduct. If a student is removed from one or more clubs due to his or her conduct, there will be no refund of club fees paid.
If you have any questions or comments about the after school enrichment program, specific clubs, registration, payment, or policies and procedures, please contact Amy Harris, the After School Enrichment Club Coordinator, at [email protected] or Norma Maiz at [email protected].
