2018-19 Info

this page will be updated as programs are confirmed, so you may want to check back frequently.

 

(Please note: due to high volunteer demands, our world language offerings are shifting from the volunteer-run OWL program to more flexible classes offered by established vendors.  We are trying to add another language or two for the fall, so stay tuned to this page!)


All after-school programs are run by separate businesses or non-profits which contract with the school to rent space on campus.  The forms & links for these programs are provided here as a convenience only.    Each program sets its own dates and times, so please note all the pertinent information when signing up.  Any questions should be directed to the contacts listed for each program, not to the school.
