PTA Extracurriculars Return to Winn Brook!

Enrichment Programs | | View Counts (309) | Return|

Dear Winn Brook Families,

We are delighted to announce that the popular PTA Extracurriculars program will be returning with a mini session this fall!  In order to reintroduce the program while remaining mindful of safety and other Covid-related considerations, this 7 week session will have more limited class offerings than usual.  So if you would like your student to participate, sign up early!

For families who are not familiar with PTA Extracurriculars, this program provides an opportunity for Winn Brook students of all grades and interests to enjoy low-key, non-graded classes either before or after the school day. In the past, programs have covered a wide range of topics including sports, nature, art, computing, movement, theater, science and more. We are fortunate to have the talents of Winn Brook community members as instructors, as well as specialists from professional organizations and independent artists.
