Update: Enrichment Program classes will not be offered during the Fall and Winter 2021-22 school year. We'll keep you posted regarding plans for Spring 2022.

 

Clara Barton PTSA partners with and supports local and industry-leading partners to offer students after-school learning opportunities. Classes are designed to be F-U-N and promote interaction with other students. Clara Barton PTSA welcomes all LWSD Elementary and Middle School students to register for classes.

What parents say...

"We eat the food she prepares in class for that day's dinner. It gives her so much pleasure and pride to prepare dinner for the family"

  • Please, read the Enrichment Program Class Policies and Procedures for details on refund and cancelation policies, chaperoning, and additional terms and conditions. By enrolling in an after-school class, you agree to the Policies and Procedures. 

Virtual Chaperones

All Enrichment classes are required for insurance to have a chaperone that is a Clara Barton PTSA Member and a LWSD-approved volunteer. The chaperone does not need to be the parent of a participating student but must be over the age of 18. If a chaperone is unavailable for a class, the class may be canceled. Parents interested in chaperoning one full session will be reimbursed the tuition fee upon class completion.

Virtual chaperone responsibilities include:

  • Join the meeting 5 minutes prior to the start time
  • Record attendance
  • Provide constructive feedback to the PTSA Enrichment VP

The PTSA welcomes suggestions on new class offerings. Contact the PTSA Enrichment VP at enrichment@clarabartonptsa.org.
