Registering for PTA After School Clubs
ES ASC Procedures
Registration opens promptly at 8 pm. There are limited spots so you are encouraged to register early. Due to limited availability children will only be enrolled in one club.
You will be notified via email of your child’s positive enrollment. If you do not receive an e-mail, then your child was not enrolled. Unenrolled students will be automatically added to the wait list and contacted if spots become available in the order of the timestamp on their registration.
Parent Volunteers Are Needed! Two adult volunteers must be present at every club/workshop meeting. Details of parent volunteer duties are located here: ASC Parent Volunteer Responsibilities. Parent volunteers must be able to attend every meeting and agree to perform his/her duties responsibly which includes communication with other club/workshop parent volunteers to ensure adequate coverage.
Please note that registration is NOT automatic enrollment. Enrollment will be determined on a first-come, first-served basis. However, children of parent volunteers are guaranteed a spot in the club. Please be advised that if you agree to volunteer and accept a spot for your child and then withdraw as a volunteer, your child will also be removed from the club and his/her spot given to a child on the wait list. Failure to meet your volunteer commitment will result in the inability of your child to participate in future clubs
After School Clubs run from 4 pm to 5:05. Students will report to club upon classroom dismissal.
All elementary students must submit a ODS transportation change note to stay for ASC. These notes are submitted on each date – you cannot bulk submit.
Parent pick up is promptly at 5:05 - after two late pick ups a child may be removed from the club.
Parents will need to park in the main lot and walk up the front doors and wait for volunteers to dismiss their child.
Parents are not to enter the building. Please have a photo ID ready to present to club volunteers.
Students who attend the Kidzquest program will be dropped off at Kidzquest when club dismisses.
After school clubs is a volunteer led PTA program. We ask that you respect the registration and enrollment process. PTA elementary after school clubs are tremendously popular and space is limited. Parent volunteers give their personal time and work diligently to make it possible.
After School Clubs is a parent led PTA program. The PTA welcomes your club suggestions and is looking for volunteers to lead clubs so that we may expand our options and offer opportunities to more ODS students. Please contact email@example.com if you are interested in leading a club.
