After School

Welcome to the PS101 After School Program!

Thank you for choosing and supporting the PS101Q Parents Association After School Program!

Not only are we proud to help our parents caring for their children by offering high quality, inclusive, fun and educational after school classes in the same familiar building where they go to school. You should also know (if you don't already) that all profits from the after school program go right back to your children at PS101Q with all the gifts and activities the Parents Association is able to provide to our school community (residencies, air conditioners, rugs, community events, school celebrations, and the list goes on). Your enrollment money goes a long way! We are looking forward to a fun, entertaining and educational semester with your children.

The Fall semester starts Monday, September 19th and ends Friday, January 27th with the following calendar:

Schedule & Class Descriptions: Please see the Fall '22 ASP Schedule with rooms or the class descriptions.

HOW TO REGISTER

  • New Families: If you are new to PS101, please create a new account ahead of registration.
  • Existing Families: If you have already participated in the PS101 After School Program, please update your personal information and credit card details by signing into the ASP Portal.

For families new to the program, your children will be dismissed directly to their after school activities by their teachers on the days during which they are registered. Dismissal will be in the school auditorium at 4pm. Students enrolled in the aftercare program will be dismissed through 6pm. As a reminder, families can request emergency aftercare on days they cannot make the 4pm pick up for a fee of $35 if they're not already enrolled in regular aftercare. Simply email [email protected] if you are in need of emergency aftercare.

WAITLIST

We have many children on waitlists for different activities and we are doing our best to try to increase class sizes and/or offer new classes. We appreciate your patience and we promise to let you know promptly when a spot opens up for your waitlisted child/children.

SNACKS

All students will have the opportunity to have a snack at the start of the after school class. Because it is a long day, please remember to send an extra snack with your child on the day(s) they are enrolled in after school. The school now has refill stations so please send a refillable water bottle for your child.

SELF DISMISSAL (4TH AND 5TH GRADERS ONLY)

Parents may grant permission for their 4th and 5th graders to self dismiss (no adult pick up is required). We need permission specifically to dismiss from the after school program, so if you have not already done so last semester and you want your child dismissed on their own, please email [email protected] stating you grant permission for your child to self dismiss from the after school program for the 2022-2023 school year. Requests for self-dismissal for any child in grades 3 and below will not be honored.

BEHAVIOR

We had been having some issues with disruptive behavior from students last semester and the school will not allow us to continue the program if more property gets destroyed or goes missing. Because the community relies on this program to run, we must protect it by taking a stricter stance on disruptive and destructive behavior. Please remind your children that they are still on school property and they are to respect the staff and the classrooms in afterschool just as they do during the regular school day. After serious infractions, a child will receive a letter notifying the parents. After the second letter, we'll have to discuss whether the child should be moved to a program better suited to their personality because we really just want a happy ending for everyone. However, after the 3rd letter, we'll have to drop the child from the program. Egregious infractions where the school administration must get involved may result in immediate dismissal from the program. If parents have questions regarding specific issues, they can contact the on-site After School Coordinator, Jen Aletras at [email protected].

No drops, no refunds after September 25th.

Best regards,
Suzanne Flannery, Valeria Vavassori-Chen & Jason Rein
