Woodstock Elementary After School Programs

Dear Woodstock Families,

Thank you for your interest in the after school programs!  This is information about the programs offered at our school.  You can get additional information online at the class website or by contacting the instructor.  

Registration:

Registration information is included with the class description.  Many classes offer online registration but there are also registration forms available at the school front office.  

Dismissal procedures:

At the 2:30 dismissal bell, Woodstock teachers will escort students to the gym where their after school instructor will take them to the room where their program will be held. Please be sure to arrange for your child to be picked up on time at the end of class. Woodstock School cannot provide care for your child after the end of class.     

Scholarships:

The PTA membership voted to allocate funds for after school class scholarships. We want every student to have the opportunity to take after school classes, so if your child is interested in participating in an after school program but you don’t feel you can afford it, or if you know of a family that could benefit from this opportunity, please contact the school counselor, Mr. Kosmas, by email (pkosmas@pps.net) or give him a call 503.916.6380.

Have an idea for a new class or wish something else was offered?  Let us know!  Send an email to secretary@woodstock-pta.org.
