My After School Program (MASP) is excited to offer a balance of afternoon enrichment for your child through engaging extracurricular programs for students in grades 1-5. Some schools offer limited programming options to Kindergarten students, however, we do not offer extras to Pre-K students. Whether you are looking for the arts, athletics or STEAM, we strive to provide something for every child. By enrolling your child in one of our programs, your child will transition from the end of their school day into their extracurricular program. A sample of classes includes Art, Drama, Bricks, Martial Arts, Robotics, Film Production, Tennis, Soccer, Find the Wild, Dance, Chess and more!
Safety is always our top priority. The instructors for each course will be the same each week allowing your child to feel comfortable in their afternoon environment. We require all instructors to comply with and be “all clear” with the same background check Atlanta Public Schools teachers complete. At the end of their extracurricular class day, students are dismissed back into the My After School Program, if enrolled, or you can pick-up your child via carpool or walker dismissal at our designated dismissal area. When picking up in carpool, please use your school carpool tag and have ID ready. ID may be checked the first few weeks until the instructors become familiar with all parent faces! All pickup persons must be listed as emergency contacts in YOUR CHILD'S (not yours) MASP PARENT PORTAL ACCOUNT.
We have two semesters of Extracurricular Programs (Extras). The Fall session of Extras begins the first full week after Labor Day and the Winter-Spring session of Extras begins the first full week after the Martin Luther King holiday. MARK YOUR CALENDARS! Registration for Fall '22 opens Saturday, August 6 at 9:00 AM and registration for Winter-Spring '23 opens Saturday, December 3 at 9:00 AM. REGISTRATION FOR ALL SESSIONS WILL CLOSE THE FRIDAY BEFORE CLASSES BEGIN. We follow the APS calendar and observe all holidays and teacher workdays on the school calendar.
The Friday before classes begin, the Parent Welcome Letter for that session is posted on our homepage and emailed to the parents of registered Extras students. The Parent Welcome Letter will detail the logistics of the Extras day, how to notify school classroom teachers of your child’s afternoon schedule so that they transition from the school day to their class successfully, how to notify us of your child’s absence from their Extra on any given day, bussing (if there are multiple campuses) and more! Keep in mind, MASP is not linked to the school’s computer system and we do not have access to parent contact information, pick up persons or restrictions nor any information allergy or important medical information. Please make sure your child’s profile is complete and includes all important information.
CHANGE AND WITHDRAWAL FEES: Choose your child’s classes carefully. There is a $10 class change fee when changing classes after a registration has been completed. Additionally, there is a $50 withdrawal fee for all requested refunds and withdrawals after a registration has been completed. Notifications reminders of this are included in the Extras registration agreements and posted here for transparency. After the second week of the session class schedule has been completed (by 7 PM Friday of the second week of the semester), no additional registrations, refunds or class changes will be made by MASP. At that time, rosters are final and we will be invoiced by the class providers for the semester.
Still have Extras questions, need to request a refund, make a class change? For all things Extras related, please email Beth Geurin, Extracurricular Programs Director at firstname.lastname@example.org .
