This year an SOMSD organization called Beyond the Bell will run the after-school enrichment program. In the past this has been a PTA effort, but the district mandated the change. The proceeds from enrichment will still benefit Tuscan in the form of district services, but the PTA won't be involved. Beyond the Bell already runs enrichment at all the other district elementary schools. The administration is working with them to ensure that our students enjoy a fun and robust enrichment program.
Information for the program can now be found here:
Beyond the Bell is an after-school program created by the South Orange Maplewood School District’s Parenting Center.Beyond the Bell is designed to help all students stretch and grow by coordinating, deepening and expanding after-school opportunities at the elementary level.
The fall session will begin the week of October 2nd. Students will be introduced to a wide variety of subjects and activities, taught by enthusiastic and experienced instructors in a comfortable and familiar environment. Some of the instructors are SOMSD teachers and parents; others come to us from the wider community.
The registration packets were sent home via backpacks this week. An electronic copy is also available at this link.
Online registration begins Tuesday, September 12th at 12:01am. The online registration process shows class availability and you will get confirmation of your class registration as soon as payment is finalized.
You can also send the paper registration form in through your child’s backpack beginning September 12th. Your child’s first choice class may no longer be available by the time paper registrations are received and processed, so it is important to indicate 2nd and 3rd choice options.
If you have any questions, please email Christina Waldon at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to welcoming your children to our after school classes in October!
