WELCOME BACK, SEPTEMBER 2015!

Welcome back!  We hope you had an amazing summer.

The Afterschool Program at PS 11 is operated by PS 11 Programs Inc, a not-for-profit community based organization that works in partnership with PS 11.  We offer a safe, caring creative and enriching learning environment that supports and encourages each student to develop to their fullest potential – socially, emotionally, intellectually and physically.  We offer a partnership between school, home and the community with the responsibility to support our students in becoming independent members of society.

Our Afterschool program is offered every school day from 3:00-6:00 to children PreK through 5th grade.  We have a variety of enrichment classes that provide children with opportunities to have new experiences, learn new skills and develop new friendships.  The fees for the afterschool program are $17.25 per class (1 1/2 hours)/$10.50 if you meet the federal income guidelines for free lunch.  No family is ever turned away if they are unable to afford these rates – scholarships are available.
