Cordero PTA Enrichment Program

Overview

The Cordero PS 37 PTA Enrichment Program offers after school classes to students in PreK 3 to 5th grades during Fall and Spring sessions for a fee per class. The cost incurred for taking these classes are the responsibility of the parents/guardians. Limited scholarships are available for families in need. All classes are held at the school after the end of the school day.

Term Length

Enrollment Requirements

Participation of Enrichment requires the registering parent or guardian to obtain 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.

Fees

Each vendor charges their own costs for instruction. The PTA Enrichment Committee adds a $11.00 fee for each class registration to the vendors' class cost. This fee assessed by the PTA Enrichment Committee covers the administrative costs of the registration system, online payments, stipends for the in-classroom parent assistants and to subsidize 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. *NEW SPRING 2019* There will be a $20 fee per child to fund onsite coordinator and program coordinator roles to operate the Program on a day-to-day basis.

The PTA Enrichment Committee members are volunteers and do not receive any payments or subsidies. Any surplus from the fees stays in the 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 a smooth operation of the classes. A $100 monetary stipend is awarded at the end of the term to parents who assist in the classroom. This payment requires commitment to attend and assist in the assigned classroom for the full term (10 or 11 classes, depending on class), or otherwise arranging for a substitute within guidelines. (Please note: All PreK 3 classes require a parent or guardian present for each child for the duration of the class).

Please see Classroom Parent Assistants' Guidelines for more details on the parent assistant 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 enrichment@ps37pta.org if you are interested in becoming a classroom assistant. We thank you in advance!
