The After-school Enrichment Program is 100% powered by Don Benito PTA volunteers.
In its 2nd year, the program offers a series of moderated after-school clubs and programs throughout the year, designed to complement Don Benito’s already-robust offerings of fee-based programs and after-school care offerings by providing low-to-no cost after-school enrichment options for students.
After-school Enrichment is:
• Free to Don Benito students*
• Design to stimulate learning and growth
• Allow for exposure to topics not covered in the regular school day’s curriculum
• Topics may range from science exploration, filmmaking / animation, chess, homework help etc. (if you have a special skill and want to help run a club, let us know!!!)
*We may charge a small materials fee (under $50) to cover necessary club expenses
After-school Enrichment is not child care – your child must actively participate in the clubs to be included. When demand exceeds availability in each club, a lottery will be conducted to ensure fair access.
