After School Program – Frequently Asked Questions

What is the After School Program (ASP)?

The ASP is run by teachers, parents and community members. These classes offer our students additional enrichment opportunities and the proceeds directly fund PTO initiatives. Offerings may include: arts, crafts, chess, computer and Lego clubs and physical fitness activities.

What are the hours for the afterschool program?

7:30am-8:10am or 2:15pm-3:30pm.

How many classes are the sessions?

There are 6-8 classes per session.

How do I sign up my student? 

Please visit the Clarke Online Store to register your student and pay for any ASPs. Courses will be announced prior to the sessions, along with the registration date and deadline. Make sure you have your Paypal credentials ready!

How do I request a scholarship? 

You may select Scholarship Request in the online store. If approved, a student is eligible to receive one scholarship per session. If the student has registered for more than one ASP, the scholarship will be applied to the more expensive program.

How so I know that my student got into the class?

How to submit a proposal to teach in the ASP?
