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.
Volunteering may be required to enroll in our after-school programs. PTSA-run after-school classes cannot happen without you! Every child who is enrolled in an after-school class will be required to provide an adult volunteer to chaperone one or more days of the class. Help the PTSA and Benefit with reduced or free tuition for your child! Discounts will be offered to one child in each of the classes below if their parent/guardian can attend every class. This benefit is extended on a first-come, first-served basis. If we do not have a volunteer for each class, we CANNOT RUN THE CLASS.  

After School Program Schedule

Before signing up, please review the Code of Conduct with your child. Every family who participates in PTSA after school programs are expected to volunteer/chaperone for one session.
