PTA Afterschool Programs at Spring Glen

(The text below describes the PTA-organized enrichment programs. For information about regular before- and after-school care, see the provider Right at School’s website.)

Spring Glen hosts many afterschool enrichment programs with a wide variety of topics. They are divided into three sessions during the school year – the fall session runs from early in September through December.  Programs run one day a week, start right after the school day, and usually end between 4:30 and 4:45 PM.  Sign ups will happen during the first two weeks of school.

The PTA also supports scholarships for families who need assistance in order to participate. Our goal is for all students to be able to participate in afterschool programs if they want, regardless of their ability to pay.

Below are brief descriptions of past programs. Contact the program leader for any specific questions.  Direct any general questions about the PTA afterschool programs to the coordinator,
