The Nottingham PTA is excited to offer an after school enrichment program for its students! We have three exciting sessions planned - Fall, Winter and Spring - with lots of great classes to choose from in each one.

Whether you are looking for sports, drama, arts and crafts, technology, science or hobbies, there's something here for everyone. SO go exploring and see what you want to learn!
Transition from school to enrichment programs:
Students enrolled in enrichment will proceed from their regular classes to the gym where the Instructor will check them in. Instructors are expected to supervise students in the gym as they arrive for enrichment. After taking attendance (see below), Instructors will escort students to their class locations where they will be able to set up for class while students wait and/or assist them. If an instructor is late, then the EM On-site Coordinator will assist in taking care of the students until the instructor arrives and/or bring the students to the enrichment room if possible.

Early Elementary French, International School of Languages - $204
ISL provides a well-rounded French program for those children in grades K-2 that are either starting to learn French or would like to continue adding to their knowledge of French. Apart from the language, children will learn some culture, and traditions where French is spoken. During this program, students will be introduced to greetings and presentations, the alphabet, the family, the school, numbers, colors, shapes, sizes, animals, parts of the body and senses, professions, places in the city and many more! Topics rotate each session; therefore, students who register for later sessions will learn something different each time. Each student will receive handouts that they will be able to use in class and at home!
Class sizes are small and taught by native speakers who are experienced teachers of the language and culture, engaging, fun and motivating. Studentsâ diverse learning modalities are addressed through the following: Conversation, Music, Flashcards, Games, Videos, Art, and Storybooks. Instructors use every moment as an opportunity to motivate students to use and practice their speaking skills. During each program, we introduce a series of games and activities that develop the skills needed to learn a second language in a consistent and sequential manner.
After every class, parents receive an email from their teacher that includes what was done in class and if there is any homework for the week. This email also includes any ideas to use at home with your child in order to solidify what they are learning in class.

Each child learns at their own pace and our coach works with each child to ensure continued progress! Classes are 60 minutes and includes both yoga and tumbling!
Intro to Game Design, STEM exCEL - $166
Intro to Game Design builds upon the fundamentals and concepts of game design within a real game engine many indie development teams currently use. Students learn to design and build their own game from the ground up, while learning 2D game art and programming logic with the engine’s integrated art software and easy-to-use events system, fit for beginners through advanced learners alike. Our instructors help students develop games individually, so students have the freedom to create at their pace while focusing on their creative interests. The final product is their own game that can be played on any computer, and the know-how to continue their game development at home.
This class may be tailored to work with younger or older students. With lots of hands-on activities and individualized attention, we make sure the students are able to absorb and retain the information in a supportive, interactive and--most importantly--fun way.
For each seasonal session (Fall, Winter & Spring), we recommend selecting 2 courses, a 1st-4th course and a 3rd-6th course. This is recommended to ensure you are providing a diverse offering to your community as well as providing full 1st-6th grade coverage which is especially convenient for multi-sibling households.

Monsters, magical landscapes, autumn leaves, animals and more are among just some of the very fun themes used as springboards to stimulate creativity and excite the imagination. Children are always encouraged to explore themes of their own choosing. If the size of the class permits, students will
