After School Programs

PTA Afterschool Programs at Spring Glen

Fall 2019

Packets containing sign-up information for each program have been distributed in your child’s folder!  If you didn’t get one, or lost it, you can access the packet here.  Programs will begin the week of September 16th and generally run for 8-12 weeks.  Please sign up soon as spaces fill and programs need to get their rosters to the front office.

The PTA wants all children to be able to participate in afterschool programs regardless of their ability to pay.  Scholarships are need-based and available for any child who would otherwise not be able to join an afterschool program.  This includes but is not limited to families who qualify for free or reduced lunch.  Simply pay 10% of the total cost of the program and the PTA will pay the remainder.  There is no application process; you should take financial aid if cost is an obstacle to your child participating.

Most programs end between 4:30 and 4:45 PM.  The program will notify you which door dismissal takes place at; please arrive promptly at that location (not the front office).  Any children enrolled in Right at School aftercare can be dismissed directly to that program. Contact the program leader for any specific questions.  Direct any general questions about the PTA afterschool programs to afterschool@springglenpta.org.
