Roy Cloud Enrichment Programs Spring-Winter 2018

The Roy Cloud PTO is proud to offer an exciting assortment of high quality Enrichment Programs for Spring-Winter 2018.

Enrichment Program Overview

All of the following classes are held on the Roy Cloud campus where students are able to stay in a safe and enriching environment, while also continuing to build community through sharing a common interest. We strive to provide vendors that offer classes which allow students to follow their interests, to enrich their curiosity, and to have fun.

For scheduling flexibility, students attending Workshop Enrichment or Neighborhood Kids’ Corner can also attend after school classes and return to Workshop Enrichment or Neighborhood Kids’ Corner when the class is over. In addition, some of our vendors offer supervision for K-2 students when classes begin on or after 2:50. Please see visit the vendors in the links, or contact the after school coordinators for more specific information.

While these classes are held on our campus and attended by our students, they are offered by, and run by, individual vendors. All payments and responsibility for attendance, questions, and other issues can be directed at the individual vendors by clicking the link to their websites.

Questions regarding the After School Program can be sent to the PTO After School Coordinators  Mary-Elizabeth Redner or Tiffany Gonzales.
