After School Enrichment

Allen Creek PTSA's After School Enrichment Program (ASEP) has fully transitioned to online registration.  Registrations are on a first-come, first-served basis.  Once the program is full, the online system will be closed.  If a waitlist form is available for that program, then you may request that your child be placed on a waitlist.  The program coordinator will follow-up with an e-mail notice if a spot becomes available.

Please observe the registration deadline as we need to (1) meet the minimum registration numbers for the after school clubs to proceed and (2) confirm outside program instructors two to three weeks in advance.  Once the registration period closes, our program coordinators (who are all volunteers) have limited availability to conclude program logistics.  Due to safety concerns, no late registration requests will be considered on the program start date.  We sincerely appreciate your cooperation in registering before the deadline.

Registration payment tip: you do not need to have a PayPal account to complete your registration payment.  Click on the "Register" button to proceed to the payment screen.  It offers two options: (1) at the top "Pay with PayPal" login, or (2) scroll down to "Pay with Debit or Credit Card" button (final screen is "PayPal Guest Checkout").

 

The mission of Pittsford PTSA's After School Enrichment Program (ASEP) is to provide safe and supervised after-school educational, enriching and/or recreational programs for school-age children in grades K-5. Building PTSAs choose programs based on their individual demographics, interest level, and parent commitment. The building principal must approve all programs. Each after-school club has its own coordinator. Visit the Leadership page to contact the appropriate program chair with questions. 

Please note: Programs on this page are for Allen Creek Elementary students only. 

Important Reminders about the After School Enrichment Program:

  • Allen Creek PTSA's After School Enrichment Program (ASEP) is a service we offer to our Allen Creek families, therefore after-school enrichment programs are intended to be self-supporting and break even financially.

  • The Allen Creek Lend-A-Hand Fund is available to students for whom the cost is prohibitive.  Please contact Principal Biondi at (585) 267-1200 for assistance.

  • Please note, online processing fees will be calculated and applied at check out for each program registration. 

  • Per District PTSA policy, parent volunteers are required and must be present at all times to provide assistance where needed.  Please volunteer to help enrich your child's after school club experience!

  • No late school bus service is available for PTSA-sponsored after school programs.  A parent, guardian, or an authorized adult must pick up your child promptly after the session.  Please arrive on time to be considerate of the parent volunteers' time. 

  • At pick-up, a parent/guardian or an authorized adult must sign out your child. Be prepared to show ID to the volunteer signing your child out for the safety of all children in the program.  Be sure to contact the program coordinator if the authorized adult for pick up changes.

  • No refunds provided when your child is absent, sick, or participating in an activity that conflicts with ASEP sessions.  

  • Per District PTSA policy, you may withdraw your child and request a refund up to 7 calendar days prior to the start of the program; online payment fees will be deducted from all refunds regardless of refund date. Less than 7 days prior to a program’s start date, or after a program has begun, only medical refunds (with a doctor’s statement) will be granted. Refunds may be prorated based on the date of notifying the PTSA ASE committee; all expenses incurred by the ASEP will be deducted from any refund.

 

Registration buttons will only be active when registration period is open. Registration opens Wednesday, November 30th at 7PM and closes Wednesday, December 7th at 11:30 PM.
