Before & After School Enrichment

After School Enrichment Programs 2015-16

Registration period is September 8 – 18, 2015

The Lawton PTA is pleased to continue offering before and after school enrichment programs for our students and adults. The registration process will begin on September 8th at Doing Business Day and end on September 18th. All registration forms turned in between September 8 – 11 will be in a lottery drawing for enrichment classes as many classes fill up quickly. The PTA feels this is a fair and reasonable way for an equal opportunity to get into a class. If your child’s name does not get pulled in the lottery before a class gets filled up, then a wait list will be created in order of the names pulled. If a spot opens up, then you will be contacted otherwise your child will have first priority for the 2nd session later in the year.

All forms turned into the office between September 14 – 18 will be registered in the order received as a date and time will be marked on the forms.

A minimum number of students per program are required in order for each program to run. For questions regarding registration please contact the PTA enrichment coordinators at lawtonenrichment@gmail.com.   If you have specific questions about the class and what it entails, please contact the instructors directly.

Filling out a registration form is only a request for classes and not a guarantee of enrollment. You will be notified via kid mail by September 18th if you child is enrolled in requested classes. Final payment will be due the following week no later than Wednesday, September 23rd. Credit card payments with a 3% fee will be accepted after school on September 21 -22 from 2:50 – 4:30 in the gym. Checks should be made to “Lawton PTA” and can be turned in to the office only.

If payment is not received, your child’s spot will be given to the next student on the waiting list.

Below is a list of classes that will be offered this year.

BEGINNING CREATIVE CODING 4 KIDS

Creative Coding teaches your child the joy of computer programming by helping them write their own custom computer games and animations! Beginner students will participate in the Creative Coding core curriculum, learning the fundamental elements of coding using MIT’s Scratch to create their very own computer game!
