A message about the After School Enrichment ("ASE") Clubs Program:
GRADY ELEMENTARY PTA FALL AFTER SCHOOL ENRICHMENT CLUBS
BEGIN ON MONDAY, JANUARY 27, 2020 AND END ON APRIL 24, 2020
Dear Grady Parents,
Registration for fall after school enrichment clubs will open on Tuesday, January 7. Clubs will begin on January 27, 2020 and end on April 24, 2020. There will be 9 Monday and Friday club sessions, and 11 Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday club sessions. There will be no Monday clubs on March 2 and April 20, and no Friday clubs on February 7 and April 10 as they are a non-student day. There will be no clubs Monday through Friday on conference week (February 17-21) and Spring Break Week (March 16-20).
To review a complete list of our fall 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 complete 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.
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 (due to early release). 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].
