The program consists of two performance groups with no distinction between the two. There will be a Tuesday Club (Bobcat Theater - Blue Cast) and a Thursday Club (Bobcat Theater - White Cast). Both casts will rehearse on their respective day from 3:30-5:30 p.m. and both will prepare a Jr. version of a Broadway musical. Rehearsals will provide students with intensive vocal, acting, and dance training. Each cast will rehears once a week with additional rehearsals added in the weeks preceding the performances in June. The year will culminate with each cast performing twice at the Arena Stage in Washington, D.C. This is a yearlong commitment. Only students in grades 3-6 are eligible for tryouts. For questions, contact Mr. Ericson at dhericson@fcps.edu.
  • Girls on the Run: Open to girls in grades 3-6 and held during the spring session. Girls on the Run is a physical activity-based positive youth development program (PA-PYD) designed to develop and enhance girls' social, psychological and physical competencies to successfully navigate life experiences. More details to come in the spring.
  • Math Enrichment (MathCounts) Competition Club: (open to 6th grade students only). Fall Registration is closed. 
    • Details: Students interested in the club should be high performers in math who wish to be challenged by solving middle school math problems.  Students who are currently enrolled Algebra or 6th Grade Advanced Math (especially those who scored over 500 on the 6th Grade math SOL last year) are strongly encouraged to consider this club. This club is not recommended for students who need help understanding grade level math skills. The club follows the MathCounts Program, which heightens students’ interests in mathematics by making mathematical achievement challenging and exciting.  The club will focus on problem-solving strategies and higher-level math concepts. Weekly, the mathletes will solve problems individually and in cooperative groups. Students who are high performers in the club may be selected to represent Churchill Road in the Fairfax County MathCounts competition. This competition usually takes place on a Saturday, in February. In addition, all club members are eligible to participate in the AMC8 in Dec. 2017, which will be administered during one of our math club meetings. More information about specific contests/tournaments will be available in November. Students should supply their own scientific calculator and pencils, but some extras will be available.
  • Science Olympiad B: The lottery to determine this year's participants in the Science Olympiad B club was conducted Wednesday morning, September 6.  Notice to parents of the results was sent by email Wednesday afternoon. If you have not received an email, please contact the CRS After-School Activities Committee by clicking here. The Science Olympiad B coach (Flavia Doboga) sent selected participants on additional information on the club.

POLICIES

Full details for policies, dismissal, FAQs and more for classes/clubs run through Enrichment Matters can be found here. For any questions that are not addressed on the portal or below, please contact afterschoolactivities@churchillroadpta.org.

 

DISMISSAL PROCEDURES

Please go over your child’s club schedule so that he/she will remember to attend the club rather than riding the bus, walking home or waiting for a ride.  Please check the end time of your child’s club and remember to pick up your child on time. Buses are not available after clubs end. 

Note: For students in Bobcat Theater, Drumline, Girls on the Run, Math enrichment, and Special Olympiad B, the teachers leading those clubs will provide dismissal procedures and contact information directly to parents of participating students. 

For all ASA classes/clubs run through Enrichment Matters, students taking Chess (in the cafeteria) or a class in the Gym should be picked up by parents or authorized adults at the external doors of those locations. All other students being picked up will be escorted to the front lobby by their Instructor. Students enrolled in SACC will be escorted to that program by their Instructor. Students authorized to walk home will be dismissed from their class locations. 

If your child is not attending ASA clubs that day or someone other than the caregiver is picking up the child, then please email the On-Site Coordinator at asa-attendance@churchillroadpta.org.  

Parents are responsible for ensuring their children are picked up on time from ASA each day. If a parent or authorized adult arrives more than 10 minutes late to pick-up a student, the On-Site Coordinator will issue a late pick-up slip the parent or authorized adult must sign. Enrichment Matters will then assess a $25 late pick-up fee to the parent. If you will be late, contact the On-Site coordinator (see Contact Information below). Repeated late pick-ups may result in dismissal from the program with no refund.

 

FAQs: 

You can find FAQs for general program questions, payments & refunds questions and on-site procedures questions for all classes/clubs run through Enrichment Matters here. Some of the most common questions and answers are noted below.

  • Number of Registrations: Students can be registered for up to 5 classes/clubs (1 per day) for each session. Kindergarteners can participate in the Winter and Spring sessions.
  • Refunds/Cancellations: There is a $15 processing fee for cancellations before a session begins. Email info@enrichmentmatters.com to request a cancellation and refund prior to the first week of the session. After the first day of the session, refunds are given at the discretion of the Provider.
  • Late Registration: Registration for classes through Enrichment Matters is open for late registration for approximately 48 hours after open registration closes for an additional non-refundable fee of $40 - no further registrations will be accepted after the late registration period ends.
  • Waitlist: During open registration, you can request to be added to a waitlist for any class/club (through EM) that is full when you try to register. If a space opens in the class, you will receive an email notification that space is opened and can attempt a new registration. All parents who request a waitlist notification will be notified at the same time, and space is filled on a first-come, first-served basis.
  • Minimum Class Size Requirements: All classes have a minimum number of students required to make the class feasible to run. If the minimum is not met by the close of registration, the class (for those via EM) will be canceled and registered parents will have the option to apply the fee paid to another available class (that is not yet full) or receive a full refund. Affected registrants will have 24 hours to request a transfer once notified.
