BEAGLE BUGLE - ROCKWELL PTA AND SCHOOL NEWS

SPRING AFTER SCHOOL
ENRICHMENT PROGRAMS
Registration is LIVE!

Check out all of our after school enrichment opportunities below!

When registering your child(ren), please remember that a fter school programs are made possible at Rockwell due to PTA sponsorship. Our PTA insurance policy states that in order to run our programs at least one PTA member (in addition to the instructor(s)), approved by the school district to volunteer, must be present in each class to witness any potential accidents that may occur. Each parent will be required to volunteer for AT LEAST one class (per child) per session for each class enrolled in.


Each volunteer must be cleared by the Lake Washington school district in order to volunteer in any after-school program. You can fill out an online volunteer application here . It generally takes two weeks for approval. Please make sure you give yourself time to be cleared before you are scheduled to volunteer!

It is the PTA's responsibility to ensure that each of our members adhere to these policies in order to protect our students, our PTA and our After School Programs.

Before you pay for classes be sure to sign up to volunteer using the provided Sign-Up Genius link for each class. Thank you!
