After School Enrichment

The mission of Pittsford PTSA's After School Enrichment Program is to provide safe and supervised after-school educational, enriching and/or recreational programs for school-age children in grades K-5. Building PTSAs choose programs based on their individual demographics, interest level, and parent commitment. The building principal must approve all programs.

Please note: You may encounter issues with credit card denial when registering multiple children for programs with identical costs. To resolve it is best to try using a different card. Waiting a while might also work.

If a program is full when you try to register, use the waitlist form to be put on a waiting list for that program.

Rainbow Clubs are elementary versions of what are often known as GSAs. Rainbow Clubs support younger students and their diverse families. It is open to anyone – kids who identify as LGTBQ+, kids with families who are LGTBQ+, allies who support their friends and families. Each week we will read a diverse picture book, do a craft and have themed lessons/activities that promote inclusion.

ATTENDANCE POLICY

  • Once your child is registered for an ASE program, you will receive an email from the program coordinator. You will be REQUIRED to respond to this email so that we can confirm your child’s registration for the program.

  • Your child’s enrollment in the ASE program will be communicated to the TRE administrative office by the PTSA.  The main office clerical staff will communicate this information to your child’s teacher.

  • Your child will be expected to attend the program days as scheduled.  No daily permission slip will be necessary to attend the ASE program.  A note or phone call to the Main Office will ONLY be required when your child is NOT planning to attend the ASE program on a specific day.  The Main Office staff will need to know the manner in which your child will be going home that afternoon. 

All Programs:  The District PTSA requires that at least TWO volunteers be present at every after school enrichment class to ensure the safety of the children. Although paid instructors teach ASE programs, they are organized and run entirely by parent volunteers. The expectation in the ASE program is that all parents of enrolled students will commit to volunteering in the classroom. The number of times you will be called on to volunteer will depend on class size and the number of classes in your session.

Please indicate AT LEAST TWO or THREE DATES, that you or another adult on your behalf, can volunteer in the classroom when registering. Schedules for volunteering will be emailed to parents at least 3 days prior to the start of the program. Classes without two adult volunteers may be cancelled. Younger siblings are welcome when parents are volunteering. 

Please Note: 

  1. Credit card information will be taken at the time of registration. 

  2. Classes may be cancelled if the minimum number of participants is not met. 

  3. Online registration will close early when classes are full.

  4. For questions or to be placed on a waiting list please contact: Victoria Lagoe
