AFTER SCHOOL / ENRICHMENT PROGRAMS (NON-ANZA)

Dear Anza Parents, 

Anza is striving to go paperless! With this effort we will not be distributing after school program flyers on a regular basis. If you would be interested in a class, please click below to find out what programs are available or check in the office to see if there might be a hard copy for you. Please note, these partners have no affiliations to Anza Elementary and our school does not profit from these programs. This link will remain on the Communicator for your convenience and will typically be found at the bottom of the email.

Please contact anzacommunicationsoffice@gmail.com if you have any questions.  
Thanks!
