Before and After School Enrichment Programs
The PTA partners with Flex Academies, a local company that professionally manages after-school programs to provide three 8-week enrichment sessions (fall, winter and spring).
If you have questions about PTA-sponsored before and after-school activities presented by Flex Academies, contact Sheryl Raskin.
Does Flex manage all enrichment activities?
Flex manages the majority of the the enrichment activities offered through the RCFPTA. Flex does not work with ‘clubs’ that parents or teachers volunteer to run, so there may be a few activities throughout the year that the PTA will offer that will not be under the Flex umbrella.
In addition, there may be companies that choose to offer classes at RCF on their own (outside of the Flex umbrella). These companies will independently handle their own registration and operational details (such as renting space and communicating with students and parents). Though they may choose to advertise their programs through backpack mail and by having flyers in the front office they will NOT be part of our official enrichment program and will not be marketed or coordinated by the school or PTA.
Why do we partner with Flex Academies?
Providing a safe, secure and fun enrichment program is an important service that the RCF PTA provides our school community. Coordinating a robust program with a variety of valuable options is a lot of work! Flex Academies – with input from the PTA and community – – coordinates with all the participating vendors, reserves rooms, manages the registration process and communicates with registered participants. They also have a paid onsite coordinator whenever enrichment activities are taking place to ensure vendors have arrived, kids get checked in and that kids get to where they need to be.
