Bennett PTSA's After School Enrichment committee arranges three sessions of after school classes for Fall, Winter and Spring. The classes vary each session and may include Art, Drama, Chess, Math, Sports, Coding, Languages and Engineering. These sessions seek to offer fun and supportive after school enrichment opportunities for kids who may want to try something new or pursue extracurricular interests with Bennett friends. For parents, these classes can expand opportunities for kids in a convenient location and build community.

If you have a suggestion of an activity you would like to bring to Bennett Elementary, questions, comments, or suggestions feel free to reach out to afterschoolenrichment@bennettptsa.org. You are also welcome to research your idea and bring the important details to our next PTSA meeting.
