We are excited to announce some changes to the Bagley After-School Program (ASP)! ASP offers enrichment classes at the school five days a week. In the past, classes included Spanish, chess, coding, piano, sports, choir, clay, watercolor, cooking, music, broadcast journalism, and more!
The program is enormously popular and has grown over time. In the past, it was administered entirely by PTA volunteers and we are incredibly thankful to those volunteers who made it happen! The time finally came to find someone to take over this big job. The Associated Recreation Council, the nonprofit partner of Seattle Parks and Recreation, has agreed to run the program starting this fall. This change in administration means a few changes for families participating in these classes:
- Registration: Registration is not open yet. It will be online through the SPARC Be sure to sign up for an account now if you don’t already have one! We will update this page and send an announcement to the V-List when registration is open.
- Class schedule:There will be three sessions–fall, winter, and spring–and each will run for approximately 9 to 12 weeks depending on the class. Fall classes will begin in late September. There will be no classes on holidays, no-school days, or early dismissal days. The class list will be available soon.
- How it works: At 3:40, students will gather in the cafeteria, where a monitor will check them in and provide a snack. At 4pm they will go to their respective classes until 4:50.
- NEW: This year, there will be an option to sign up for two classes back to back. The second class will start at 5pm and will probably be geared toward homework help or playground time.
