Winter 2023 Enrichment Programs

Registration HAS Closed for Winter 2023. Please check back later this month for more information on Spring classes.

Registration for Spring US Chess Center Club now Open.

Winter Enrichment Classes will begin the week of 1/9 and run for 8 weeks. Due to the large number of days off during January and February, most clubs will run through the week of 3/13. All clubs have 1 snow day build in; however, if schools are closed for more those additional days will not be made up and there will not be a refund issued for missed classes.

Registration will take placed through our Third Party Vendor, Kiddo. Once registration opens (week of 12/12), a link will be provided below to our registration page. Please note, that when you register for a class your registration will display as "Pending." Once a class reaches its minimum number of participants, the vendors will accept registrations in the order they are received. Your method of payment will not be charged until the class meets its minimum number of students and the vendor accepts your registration. Once your registration is accepted and your method of payment is charged, NO REFUNDS will be issued.

A few things to note:

  • Classes DO NOT display a live time update with the number of available spots. Once a class reaches its maximum number of students the vendor WILL NOT accept any more registrations and the class will be removed from the Kiddo Registration page but this is not real time. If there is a class your student is very interested in, please plan to register early. Vendors CANNOT exceed their maximum number of students.
  • Each class has an assigned grade range. There are NO EXCEPTIONS to these grade ranges.
  • Once your registration is accepted and your method of payment is changed, there are NO REFUNDS.
Chess Club on Tuesday through the US Chess Center is now open directly through the providers website. This chess class is open to students in 2nd through 6th grade.
