Fee-based enrichment classes in a variety
of areas are taught by community instructors. Classes are offered Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at Malcolm X, in
Fall session begins Monday, September 30 and runs through Friday, December 20, 2013. Spring session begins in February 2013 and runs through most of May 2013.
Check out all the cool classes that you could sign your kid up for! Kindergarteners can sign up for classes like Toyology, Math Games, Circus Arts, Fairy Tales Dance, Ceramics, Build the World, Capoeira, Origami, Artchitecture LEGOs and Take Me to the Improv! First through fifth graders can sign up for many of the above PLUS Rock and Roll Air Band, FLIGHT! (grades 2-5), Gardening, Ultimate Frisbee, Chess (one for boys and one for girls), and for 3rd-5th graders, Glass Art, and Role-Playing Adventure!
Please note that Fencing will not be taught onsite this year. Continuing students can still take fencing offsite if they choose (not through MX, and they must arrange their own transportation). We hope to have this class back at MX next year. For a copy of the Fencing offsite flyer, click here.
All classes are taught one day a week by community instructors at MX, immediately after the regular school day ends. Afterschool classes run as follows: Monday and Friday classes go from 1:30-2:20, while Wednesday classes go for a full hour, from 1:30-2:30. One class runs longer: FLIGHT! takes place on Wednesdays from 1:30-2:45.
Class prices range from $120-$220 per child for the Fall session, and generally a little more for the longer Spring session; some scholarships are available. Your child can attend these classes and still participate in X-Plus/EDC, etc. afterschool care. (Spring session classes cost a bit more than fall session classes since the session will be longer and there will be more class meetings. Again, there will be some scholarships available.)
Scholarships are provided on a first-come/first-served basis, with a limit of ONE scholarship per student. If you sign your child up for more than one class this session, the scholarship will be available ONLY for the least expensive class. To apply for a scholarship, check the box on the class registration form and pay the minimum fee of $30. If you can afford to pay more, but not up to the full cost of the class, please write your check for the amount you can reasonably afford. Please make your check payable to "Malcolm X PTA."
Also please note that a few classes charge an additional fee for materials. Registered students will pay that fee directly to the instructors, on the first day of class.
Instructions for this year (2013-2014): Make sure to return your form and check(s) to the MX school office by the lottery deadline: Thursday, September 19th, 2013 at 2:30 pm. Checks (NO CASH) should be for the amount of class tuition only and not for the additional materials fee; the materials fees will be paid once the class begins. The lottery will be conducted on Thursday, September 19th. The last day to register (for classes that are not completely filled via the lottery) will be Monday, September 23rd.
