Pay $275 for entire session, including 12 weeks of classes and special event days. Please pay online via Pay Pal: creeksidepto.org
or leave a check made out to Creekside PTO in Alicia’s box in the office or the PTO envelope in your child’s classroom. There is a 22 student max in the 5th/6th class, so sign up soon- there are only a few spots left. There is an EC and theater class offered at Creekside/SVP on Fridays for 5th/6th graders, so we are combining grades at enrichment for the smaller class sizes that we anticipate.
Why: It is an awesome opportunity for your children to get the hands-on experience that they love and learn so much from. It works out to less than $25 per day of instruction- a hard deal to beat! We have fantastic teachers and a wonderful space with a playground, field, gym and great trails to explore.
We ask for parent volunteers each week- a fun and meaningful way to give volunteer hours to the school. Please sign up on the website or respond to this email (firstname.lastname@example.org
) for this first week. Parents help the day to run smoothly and are vital to the success of this program that is fueled by the PTO (that’s you).
Thanks everyone and see you on Friday
