POINT HARMONY CLUBS
The Point Harmony Elementary PTO and staff are pleased to offer your students After School Activities that will be enriching, fun, and exciting. After School Activities provide students with a great opportunity to make new friends, try something new, or develop a skill they enjoy.
All students should bring in a light healthy snack (pretzels, granola bar, etc…) that they can eat before the enrichment Club begins. Parents must remember to pack a snack for their child. Water fountains are available if necessary.
Children are expected to behave appropriately and respectfully during all meetings. Please read the attached behavior contract with your child. Then sign and return with your registration form.
Important Policy Reminder: Parents/guardians/caregivers should meet children in the hall in front of your child's Classroom to SIGN THEM OUT promptly at times specified in the catalog. This policy helps ensure the safety of our children. Late pick-up may result in your child's removal from the program with-out a refund. You must park and come inside unless you've given permission for your child to "exit the building unescorted" on the registration form. Make sure your child understands which pick-up option you have chosen.
DATES & TIMES:
Starting dates for the programs begin as noted on the schedule. Each Club meets once a week for a period of four weeks and begins after all students are dismissed at the end of the school day. There will be no Club if school is cancelled or dismissed early. Make-up meetings will be added to the end of the session unless you are notified otherwise. Meetings are one hour.
If there are too many students requesting the same Club? If this happens, we select students for each Club by random lottery. if there are less than 6 students enrolled in a Club? We need at least six students per Club to cover program costs, so it is possible that a Club may not be held due to lack of enrollment. Most clubs will be capped at ten students.
The key to the success of this program will be parent volunteers. We anticipate a strong demand for these programs; unfortunately not all students will be able to participate. If you volunteer to assist the Club your child will have a priority placement. In some of the Clubs we will offer reduced tuition for your assistance.
