Winter 2017 Session
Chabot’s After-School Programs provide enrichment classes that allow children to pursue interests or explore new activities while having fun. With more than 30 enrichment classes offered each session, there’s sure to be something for everyone! We have a great lineup for Winter, with several brand new classes. Here are just a few highlights:
- Circus of Smiles is back on Mondays, with a new class for any kid wanting to learn How to be a Ninja &emdash; this is the class to teach them! Using martial arts techniques and physical games designed to teach the ancient secrets of stealth and surprise, students will sharpen their senses, strengthen their bodies, and learn skills they’ve only imagined.
- Coach Andre will be leading a new Hip Hop Dance class on Tuesdays! Sign up early as this high energy class is sure to fill up fast…
- We also have a new Handwriting and Lettering Arts class on Wednesdays, where students can learn and practice the beautiful art of calligraphy and create cards and envelopes to share with friends and family.
- Also on Wednesdays, don’t miss out on the new Ultimate Frisbee class! Mike McGuirk, former professional player, Team USA gold medalist, and current Director of the Bay Area Disc Association, will coach 3rd-5th graders this super fun, fast-growing sport.
- And look out for our new coding class on Fridays, especially geared towards those younger techies (in K-2nd). Mini Coding NinjaZ will introduce kids to a broad curriculum that includes Block Coding, Tangible Coding, and more.

All program providers offer one full scholarship per session, awarded on a need-based honor system (limit: 1 per family/session). Need is defined as children who would otherwise not be able to afford After-School Program classes, but for scholarships. Families who qualify for free or reduced lunch will have priority. Please only apply for classes that your child is committed to taking.
To apply for a scholarship:
Download the Scholarship Request Form Fill it out and submit it to the Chabot office by Monday, December 12th. (Do not submit an Enrollment form to the providers.) Parents will be notified of scholarship awards by Tuesday, January 3rd.
For questions about scholarships, please contact Celia Bermeo at firstname.lastname@example.org or (510) 654-4884.
After-School Programs classes are taught by independent program providers. They are not affiliated with Adventure Time, Chabot, or other childcare services.
Protocol for ASP drop-off and pick-up:
For classes starting immediately after school: Providers meet Kindergartners in the Kindergarten yard if the class starts immediately after school. Students in Grades 1-5 walk independently to their After-School class.
For classes starting more than 10 minutes after the end of the school day: The parent or guardian is responsible for ensuring that the student is either enrolled in Adventure Time or supervised by an adult between the end of school and the beginning of the ASP class.
Pick-up from After-School Programs: Neither the school nor Adventure Time is responsible for a child’s whereabouts once the school day has ended.
- Only students enrolled in AT will be escorted to AT after class.
- At the conclusion of each After-School class, providers must release students of all grade levels to a parent, guardian, or authorized adult (unless the child is enrolled in Adventure Time.)
- Parents, guardians, or authorized adults must be prompt in picking up children from After-School classes. Repeated tardiness may result in your child being dropped from class or the loss of your scholarship.
To ensure the success and continuation of the After-School Programs, please observe the following:
- Make sure that providers have accurate emergency contact information. Providers will contact parents directly if class is cancelled due to weather or teacher illness. Providers should also call parents if an enrolled student is not present.
- Classes with low enrollment may be cancelled and your money returned by the instructor.
- Please ensure your child knows the time and place of their After-School class.
- If your child is not enrolled in Adventure Time, it is YOUR RESPONSIBILITY (not that of the Chabot office or AT) to supervise your child before the start of class.
- Please inform your child’s provider directly if your child is absent from school or will be leaving school early and not attending class. Accounting for absent students takes up time, detracts from valuable class activities, and is unfair to other students.
If you have questions about a specific After-School class, please contact the program providers directly. If you have general questions about Chabot’s After-School Programs, please contact the After-School Programs committee (Joyce Wu & Isabel Herman) at email@example.com.
