					TUCKAHOE ENRICHMENT PROGRAM
The Spring 2009 Enrichment Program at Tuckahoe Elementary will begin February 17 .
Each year, hundreds of Tuckahoe students participate in classes in art, science, crafts,
language, and sports. This year we have many returning favorites (Woodworking and
Chess, for example), as well as a great new offering, German. There is truly something for
everyone!

REGISTRATION is Friday,January 30 at 6:00 p.m. in the Library. This is just prior to
The PTA sponsored Disco. Please read the “Registration Information” portion of this packet
carefully. If you’d like to help with Registration, please contact Alice Rybarczyk
(arkrcsts@yahoo.com 703-241-1042), or Tammy Stoker (ttstoker@msn.com 703-534-
0275).

This Catalog includes a program schedule and description of each class. In an effort
to save money, and countless trees, we are sending home one catalog per family. Each
has 2 Consent Forms, but additional forms are available at the Tuckahoe office and at
Registration Night. The catalog with Consent Forms is also available online via the PTA
website. Should you have any questions please contact us.



NOTE FOR FALL Love Enrichment? Or don’t see anything that interests you? Either way,
we could use your help. We are already working on classes for next semester. If you have
any ideas, let us know. Also, we would love to put the whole catalog and registration online.
If you have experience with interactive websites, we’d like to talk with you.

   • A description of classes offered each day of the week is included in this
     packet.
   • Please note that many classes have different sections and starting dates.
     Classes also vary by number of sessions, so some classes may overlap.
     Please keep this in mind when registering. If you register for two classes
     taught at the same time, we may not be able to refund your money.

IMPORTANT REMINDER: Classroom teachers and Extended Day staff
cannot possibly keep track of each student’s schedule. You must, therefore,
                             send a note to school each day your child attends
                             an Enrichment class. "Pick-Up, bus rider, or
                             walker" students must have a note each day the
                             child attends an Enrichment class. This note
                             should include the name/location of the class.
                             "Extended Day" students must have required
                             schedule paperwork completed that is available
from the extended day staff. If you expect your child to be absent from any
Enrichment class, please notify the class’s instructor.

Children must be picked up from
Enrichment on time. Instructors
cannot be responsible for your child if you are late.
