The Enrichment Program at Janney
Whether exploring concepts of science with Mad Science, learning Spanish or Chinese, creating works of art or simply discovering the feel of modeling clay between their fingers, cooking, dancing, singing, running, swimming, playing scrabble or chess, kids enrolled in the Janney Enrichment Program are engaged, learning, interacting and having fun.
The program aims to provide something for everyone. Classes vary in content and approach to accommodate different learning styles and interests as well as covering a variety of ages and stages. They are almost all multi-grade, and allow kids to experiment, take risks, learn new skills and develop confidence to succeed inside and outside the classroom.
There are four enrichment sessions each school year. For 2012-13 the provisional dates for these sessions are:
Session 1 (8 weeks) : September 10 – November 2 (enrollment starts August 28)
Session 2 (6 weeks) : November 5 – December 13 (enrollment starts October 18)
Session 3 (10 weeks): January 14 – March 25 (enrollment starts December 10)
Session 4 (10 weeks): April 8 – June 17 (enrollment starts March 18)
The schedule for each session will be available at least 1 month prior to the session starting and at least 1 week prior to enrollment. Schedules will be sent home in Take Home Tuesdays and available through the website.
Enrolling into Enrichment classes
The Enrichment Program uses an online registration system to enroll all students into clubs and classes. Sign up is on a first come first served basis. Information about the classes available each session are sent home in the Take Home Tuesday and published on the website at least one week in advance of sign up starting; sign up is accessed through the Janney website. Where classes are full, parents are encouraged to sign up their children onto a wait list where it is available as it is sometimes possible to add a class if the extra demand is sufficiently high.
The program is run on a purely cost-recovery basis. Costs for the classes are calculated on the basis of the cost of the vendor, the cost of using the building after school (insurance and security), the cost of snacks, the registration system and the day to day running costs of the program. We also maintain a small budget to cover full and partial needs-based scholarships. Payment (by credit card or check) is due the first week of each session. Refunds are given for registrations canceled prior to the second class in each session, minus a $20 cancellation charge.
We are very proud at Janney to have our own homegrown schoolwide enrichment model, supported by the PTA, that aims to meet the interests and needs of all our students, and builds on the long-standing tradition of community involvement and a deep-rooted commitment to our students from the school faculty and staff.
