Carroll Elementary

Every Child, Every Day

Nurturing the Heart.....Educating the Mind

Dear Parent or Guardian,

We are excited to continue to offer an After School Program at Carroll Elementary, Monahan Elementary, and Sheldon Elementary. As you are aware, the 21st Century After School Program funding has ended. However, it is our goal to continue to offer an After School Program to engage students in a way that they must take knowledge learned and apply it artistically, creatively, and innovatively through interactive lessons and activities. The program is designed to increase students' capacity to grow and learn through exploration and discovery while supporting the academics in the areas of reading, writing, mathematics, science, and social studies. The program will also continue to offer enrichment activities to extend and expand students' learning as it relates to literacy and numeracy such as karate, cooking, dance, etc.

Due to our limited grant funding, the program will be a “fee based” Academic Enrichment Program available to elementary students in grades 1-5. The fees are as follows: $20.00 for registration (one time annual fee) and $30.00 per week, per child. You may pay by Cashier’s Check or Money Order. Cash and Personal Checks are not accepted. The weekly fee will be collected in advance on a monthly basis. The due date will be the first Friday of each month.

 If you are interested in this wonderful opportunity for your family, please fill out the attached form and return it to your child’s teacher by Tuesday, August 23rd. We only have 40 available openings on each campus so please make sure your application is returned by the 23rd.

Letters will be sent home on Tuesday, August 23, 2016 stating whether or not your child was selected to participate in the program. Please make sure you include a contact number on your form. Each campus will hold a mandatory registration meeting based on the schedule below:


            Carroll Elementary
            Wednesday, August 24, 2016  6:00 – 7:00 p.m. 
            Sheldon Elementary
            Thursday, August 25, 2016 5:30 – 6:30 p.m.
            Monahan Elementary
            Thursday, August 25, 2016 6:30 – 7:30 p.m.                    


The parents of the student chosen to participate in the program must attend this meeting. If you do not attend this meeting and your child was selected for the program or you do not pay the registration fee by the stated time, we will have to replace your child’s name with the next person on the waiting list. The initial fee of $20 for registration and $30 for the week of August 29th must be paid in advance before students may attend the program. Therefore, parents are expected to bring a money order in the amount of $50.00 at the mandatory meeting on your child’s campus.

We have a great program planned with many new activities and all the favorites from last year. We will also offer an optional summer camp that will be filled with fun, learning experiences. More information will be provided during the spring semester. We would love to serve your family this year!
