Winter Enrichment Classes
BRAND NEW THIS TERM!
We are changing our signup process so you can sign up for a class, hold off making a payment, and then withdraw from the class after one session. To do this you MUST register for the class and sign up for the autopay functionality on the parent portal. If you wish to drop the class then email Enrichment Coordinator, Michael Springthorpe, no later than January 17 to be removed from the class and you will not be charged. If you do not notify by this date, or you pay manually, and then withdraw, you will only be eligible for a credit to be used in a future enrichment class.
All classes are designed equally for students continuing from the Fall Trimester or students signing up for the first time in the Winter Trimester. Currently enrolled Green Ivy Schools students can register their children for classes here.
