We hope that you and your loved ones are staying safe and healthy.

This has been a challenging couple of weeks, but we are overwhelmed and inspired by the continued support, strength and resiliency of the PS 11 community. 

We have been working hard to move as many of our classes online as possible.  We have been cooking, dancing, coding, rocking and rolling, playing soccer and so much more.  A complete list of online classes are available below – and we continue to add more each day so check the list often. 

We also are opening up some classes to all students (see list below)- whether you are currently enrolled in that class or not.  A great opportunity for your child to try out a new class, learn a new skill and meet up with friends and classmates. 

We will post the links on our website on Sundays (and update it throughout the week.)  You can join any available class.  Please try to join the class at the indicated time.  This list does not include all the classes that we are currently offering.  Only the ones that new students are able to join.

We would like this to be really flexible – you can join when you want, no weekly commitment.  Although afterschool rates will apply, no payments will be required. Families can use the credits from payments already made toward these classes.

We are also posting on our website other available resources & activities sent to us by some of our partners (Children’s Museum of the Arts, NY International Children’s Film  Festival).  We will continue to add and update as new information comes our way.

Please stay safe and healthy.  And let us know if you have any questions or if there is anything we can do to support you and your family.

Refund/Credit policy:  We are still working out how to apply payments for missed classes as of March 16, 2020. We are hoping that we will all be back to school on April 20th.  If that is the case, we would apply any credits for missed classes going forward. There will be no further automatic charges/bills until we have resumed operations.  Credits/refunds for Early Bird, Extended Dismissal and Afterschool Dropins will also be made.   In the meantime, we are offering several online classes that we hope will help to keep your child engaged (see list below.)

We hope you and your loved ones are safe and in good health.

We don’t know what the next few weeks or months will bring, but we are collaborating with our vendors and instructors to provide some online and virtual programming.  It will not be available for every class but we will do all that we can to provide resources to help your children stay busy and engaged in their Afterschool programs.   We are also trying to create a list of other online resources (see below) that you can use to keep your kids busy.

Your family’s health and the health and safety of our staff is of the utmost importance.  We will be in touch as the situation progresses but please feel free to reach out to us if you have any questions or concerns.

New York International Children’s Film Festival Short Films:

Perfect Houseguest (All Ages)
By Ru Kuwahata and Max Porter, NYICFF 2016
2 min.
A house is visited by a clean, organized, well-mannered guest.
Talking points:
– Why do you think the filmmakers decided to use a mouse to tell this story?
– What are some words you would use to describe a mouse in your home? In this film?
– Think of another animal in your house. What unexpected things would it be funny to see them doing? Draw a picture inspired by your ideas!
Welcome to My Life (Ages 8+)
By Elizabeth Ito, NYICFF 2017
9 min.
The animated high school challenges of T-Kesh, your average Monster-American teenager.
Talking points:
– This film is a kind of mockumentary. It looks like a documentary, which is usually non-fiction, but is telling a fictional story. What elements of the film make it look and feel like a documentary?
– What is the conflict in this story? How is the conflict resolved?
– Imagine you are making a mockumentary. What is it about? Interview your family members about your subject.
Fun Fact: The voice actors are the filmmaker’s own family members!
