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 in the first round of registration. If space is available after the first round, a second round for registration will be offered. We will selectively remove your child from any classes over 1 per week in the first round of registration.  

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:  

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


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

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!
