After-School Enrichment Classes

New PTA run After-School Enrichment Options in 2022-2023!

Building on a successful fall, our enrichment committee has helped add a handful of fun new after-school opportunities for our busy Squirrels, starting in January.

We’ve also worked to lower prices, which now range from $120-200 per class for 10 weeks, with discounts and scholarships available.

Keep the classes you have or try something new!
