Cordero PS37 PTA Enrichment Program


The Enrichment Program offers after-school classes to students in Pre-K4 to 8th grades during Fall and Spring sessions for a fee per class. The cost incurred for taking these classes is the responsibility of the parents/guardians. All classes are held at the school after the end of the school day. The Enrichment Program is 100% organized, led, and managed by parent volunteers!

Space in each class is limited, therefore prompt registration is recommended when the registration link is made available. Given the limited number of spaces available, students are limited to 1 class a week.

Payment is made at the time of registration and full payment is required to confirm class enrollment. Payment is made with a credit card online or with a check or money order made to "Cordero PS37 PTA" (no cash). Remember: Once you register and pay, there is NO changing, transferring, or dropping classes! Please see the Program Rules and Agreement for details.


Limited scholarships are available for families in need (the children who are eligible for free or reduced lunch and are in financial need and who will commit to the 10-week Enrichment Program held one day a week ). Teachers and vendors as well as PTA will offer free spots for those who get scholarships.

Term Length

There are two sessions a year:

  • Fall Session occurs October through December;

  • Spring Session occurs February through May.

No Enrichment classes on early release days, days off from school, report card evenings when there is no CASPER, and any other emergency school closings such as weather-related.

Enrollment Requirements

  • Participation in Enrichment requires the registering parent or guardian to obtain a PTA membership. Sign up for your PTA membership here: Cordero PTA Membership .

  • Registration also requires agreeing to the Participation Rules and Policies Agreement and Waivers to participate in the Enrichment Program. These will be agreed upon during the registration process.


Each vendor charges their own costs for instruction. The PTA Enrichment Committee adds one fee to the cost of parent registration:

  • $35.00 fee for each class registration. This fee assessed by the PTA Enrichment Committee covers the administrative costs of the registration system, online payments, on-site coordinator, and a limited number of scholarships for students who otherwise could not attend Enrichment classes. In previous years a similar fee was wrapped into the class prices.

The PTA Enrichment Committee Chair and members are volunteers and do not receive any payments or subsidies. If there is any surplus from Enrichment fees, it remains in PTA's account for future programming.

Help Wanted: Classroom Parent Assistants

The Enrichment Program is led and organized by parent volunteers with the strong support of teachers and the administration. However, we need parent assistants in many of the classrooms for the smooth operation of the classes.

Please see Classroom Parent Assistants' Guidelines for more details on the parent assistant's responsibilities. Unfortunately, if we do not have enough assistants, we may need to cancel the classes or reduce the size of the Enrichment Program. Please contact if you are interested in becoming a classroom assistant. We thank you in advance!
