Clubs and Enrichment
Elementary After-School Clubs
It’s time to register for Winter Clubs! You can register online here or by returning a paper form to your child's homeroom teacher. Printable PDFs of all the paper forms can be found below. Registration closes on Tuesday, November 29th. All students are invited to participate, and the PTA will try to offer full scholarships to anyone who requests one. Fall Clubs have been very popular, so make sure you register soon!
The Winter Club lineup and key dates are below:
Tuesday Winter Clubs
Chess Club with Mr. Rutigliano – Grades 2-5
Active Games with Mr. Rotruck – Grades K-3

Key Dates for Winter Clubs

Registration Closes – Tuesday, November 29th
Enrollment Notifications Go Out - Week of December 12th
Winter Session Begins – January 10th (Tuesday Clubs), January 11th (Wednesday Clubs)

A few additional notes: We do not plan to separate the art students into two age groups this time since we have two art-related options on Wednesday to hopefully accommodate everyone interested. For Robotics, which was very popular in the fall, this winter we will prioritize kids who did not get in previously. We will also offer Robotics again during the spring session.
Fall Clubs are still running! End dates are below. Please note, Fall Clubs do NOT meet during the week of Thanksgiving, including Tuesday 11/22, even though school is open that day.

Tuesday Clubs (Chess and Fun Together) – December 13th

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.
Read! Craft! Play!
Thanks to our JH families who participated in the PTA's November 2021 Read + Craft + Play event! It's not too late to visit our Monster Museum to see the kids' brilliant creations!
