Cascade Ridge PTSA - Programs 2017-2018

Cascade Ridge Elementary PTSA partners with multiple organizations to provide our students with meaningful enrichment experiences. These classes extend the learning day and provide children with various opportunities to tap into their interests and be engaged in programs that are educational as well as recreational.

General Information - Enrichment classes are offered Fall, Winter and Spring.  Each class is run by an external vendor and parents will register directly with that vendor. Enrichment classes are offered either before or after school and will be held only on days when school is in session.

Refund PolicyRefund and class make-up policies will be set by the vendor providing the class.  Please ensure you are aware of the Refund and Make Up Policies before registering for a particular class.  Please note that because most classes are only offered once per week, make up classes typically will not be available.

Registration - All registrations take place online and will be on a first come, first served basis.  Please see the Class Descriptions section below and click on the “Register” link.

Cancellations - A class may be canceled in its entirely due to low enrollment or other unforeseen circumstances.  Refunds will be issued in this case.

Logistics - All classes are held on the Cascade Ridge campus. Before school classes will dismiss students to their regular school classes. Student attending after school classes go directly to their enrichment class following their regular school day. Please pick up your students at the class location.
