After School Enrichment- Virtual Synchronous Programs Only Due To Covid- 19

The mission of Pittsford PTSA's After School Enrichment Program is to provide safe and supervised after-school educational, enriching and/or recreational programs for school-age children in grades 1-5. Building PTSAs choose programs based on their individual demographics, interest level, and parent commitment. The building principal must approve all programs.  For the Spring 2021 session we will be offering virtual classes only.  

Please note: Programs on this page are for Mendon Center Elementary students only. Before registering your child for any ASE courses, please read the ASE Policies . It is especially important to read and understand policy #12 about parent volunteers.  With all of the classes being offered via Zoom, we will still need two parent volunteers to be in the Zoom meetings each week.  Your job will mainly be just to observe the class in action.  

If a program is full when you try to register, use the waitlist form to be put on a waiting list for that program. 

This page currently shows information for the Virtual Spring 2021 session. Registration is now closed. 
Registration for the Virtual Spring 2021 session will begin Sunday February 28, 2021 at noon.

Instructors will provide students with theme-related models to serve as inspiration.  Then play will continue independently or in groups to make Lego creations tied to the theme. Possibilities are endless!  Legos will be provided.

The registration fee will cover the cost of an individual Lego builder box that will be distributed to each child before the class begins.
