Families can register their students for after school classes from Tuesday, Sept. 30 through Friday, October 3, for the Fall season (Oct. 12-Dec. 12). Registering using the online Google Form does not guarantee acceptance into the class, as some classes have size limits. Some students may be placed on a waiting list in case of openings. Permission slips and Overload/Waiting List notices will be sent home next week.
