Clubs and Enrichment

Elementary After-School Clubs

Elementary After-School Clubs are back!  We have something for everyone -- from kindergarten through 5th grade: Chess, Art, Rugby, Robotics, and Fun Together! 

 

Registration for Fall Clubs has ended, and Fall Clubs begin on October 11th and 12th.  We will open registration for Winter Clubs in mid-November and will post exact dates here soon.  Contact clubs.jh.pta@gmail.com. with any questions.  

Families were notified by email and with paper slips of Fall Club enrollment on the week of October 3rd.  Here is the information that went out to families with children enrolled this session:

Weekly Schedule: Fall Clubs begin on Tuesday, October 11, and on Wednesday, October 12.  They run weekly on these days with the exceptions of the following holidays or teacher workdays:

 

No Clubs:

Oct 25 - Teacher Workday (No School)

Nov 3 - Elementary Conference (No School)

Nov 8 - Professional Development (No School)

Nov 22-23 - Thanksgiving Holiday, (No clubs Tues-Wed, No School Wed-Fri)

 

Fall Clubs that meet on Wednesday end on December 7.  Fall Clubs that meet on Tuesday end on December 13.  

 

Dismissal: Please remind your child each morning on days when he or she has an after-school Club.  Homeroom teachers will work with Mrs. Frost, the Clubs Coordinator, after school to direct kids enrolled in a Club to their meeting location at JH.  Clubs run from 2:45 to 3:45.  Club dismissal for Walkers / Parent Pick-Up is at 3:50 at the main entry doors to the school lobby on the playground-side of the building.  Kids who attend Campagna, LINK Club at JH, and Boys&Girls Club will be escorted to their after-care location when Clubs end.  Bus riders will wait with the Clubs Coordinator at JH until the activity buses run around 4:30.  We have requested an earlier bus time but are working with what ACPS can accommodate.  Bus-riders will have a snack and an activity while they wait.

 

Payment:  If you requested a scholarship for your child on your Clubs registration form, then your child has a fee waiver.  Otherwise, the fee for each Club is $85. You can pay the PTA any of the following ways:

 

 

If possible, please note on the memo line or in a comment field that your payment is for Clubs and list your child’s name.  This fee covers the actual cost for the PTA to run Clubs.  Please consider rounding up or adding a donation to the PTA to cover Clubs scholarships if you are able to.  We want all kids to be able to participate!

Enrichment

While school was virtual in 2020-2021, Jefferson-Houtson PTA put together a list of some fun, mostly online student enrichment opportunities.  While school is now back in session, this resource may still be valuable to our families.  Some of these groups may still offer virtual classes and others may be back in-person.
