After school Enrichment Program

We are so excited to finally be able to resume our After School Enrichment Program!!  We know how much our students benefit from the enrichment opportunities at PS16 each year. Our parent council has worked with our teachers to create a program filled with a multitude of fun learning activities. Classes will begin on Monday March 7th.

Understanding that these are challenging times for all of us, the parent council has chosen to reduce the typical surcharge normally included in the running of these programs to cover our administrative, and insurance costs as well as the District imposed security fee.

Unfortunately we are unable to hold any classes in the Annex building due to CASPER currently using all available spaces there. All classes will be held in the main building. Annex students may be brought to the main building by their parent to participate in classes. Regretfully Annex students who attend CASPER are unable to enroll at this time. Students in Grades 2-5 who attend CASPER in the main building can fully participate in all classes.

Registration for classes will begin on Friday March 4th at 7pm.

Please find the offered classes and prices here:https://www.ps16cpa.net/wp-content/uploads/2022/03/afterschool-22-descriptions.pdf Our classes will run for 45 minutes. Please register your children according to their grade level.
