Screen Shot 2016-09-05 at 10.13.00 AM

Roy Cloud is proud to offer the following enrichment classes for our students. While many families have current commitments in this area, these are high quality programs at our school site.  This means that students are able to stay in a safe and enriching environment while also continuing to build community sharing a common interest.  These programs depend on a minimum number of students enrolling in order to run the program, so if you are interested, please do enroll!

All classes are held on site at Roy Cloud. Click on the link for each program for registration  Registration is currently open, with many set to close registration on September 9th.  Also, please note that we are working to extend this list to include other programs as interest and feedback are provided.

If you have questions, please feel free to contact the After School Program Coordinators –Mary-Elizabeth Redner: and Tiffany Gonzales:

Note that our after school program providers are independent companies who each maintain their own enrollment policies and processes.  There is no central reservation system for after school programs.

Vendors, teachers and the After School Activities Coordinator make every effort to get every student to the programs’ location, however it is the parent’s responsibility to direct their child to the correct location, especially on the first day of class.
