Enrichment Program

The PTA of PS 372 offers an Enrichment Program over three cycles: fall, winter and spring. Enrichment Classes offer your child a chance to socialize with friends, develop skills and have fun in a safe and familiar setting. These classes encourage and inspire the creativity and curiosity of your children. The Fall cycle will begin at the end of September. Classes are taught by teaching professionals, either independently or in partnership with an established program.

For General Inquiries / Enrichment Registration, contact Janine DiLorenzo, After School Enrichment Coordinator – enrichmentps372@gmail.com 718-624-5271 ext.5101

Music Partners

The PTA of PS 372 partners with the Brooklyn Music Conservatory to offer The Music Partners Program for 3rd-4th graders and returning 5th grade students. Students choose from the flute, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, trombone or percussion. Throughout the year, students learn from teaching professionals practicing reading rhythmic skills, posture, breath support, ensemble, and style. Beginning students are separated into individual instrumental groups while they achieve a basic proficiency on their instrument. Later in the year, students form the larger concert band come together in preparation for a year-end performance.

Classes for returning students will begin in October and for new students classes will begin in Dec. More info coming soon.

Student Conduct

While The Children’s School is a Collaborative Team Inclusion School for daytime instruction, the After School Program is not run as a Collaborative Team Teaching model. We do not have the same staff and space resources that are available during the school day, and unfortunately may not be able to adequately serve children who repeatedly require one-to-one supervision. If your child has any special needs it is important that you contact Janine DiLorenzo so the program can prepare for and support your child’s specific needs to the best of the Program’s ability.

To ensure that the experience is enjoyable for everyone, we have adopted the following policies. Please ensure that you are familiar with them. To be fair to all of the other parents and children, as well as our staff, we cannot modify these policies for individual cases.

Behavior Policy:

We promote the teaching of personal and social skills, emphasizes caring, respect, responsibility, communication, and reflection. Staff will work with children to help them adjust to the program.
Parents will be informed of their child’s behavior should it be continuously disruptive to the program atmosphere. If the child’s behavior becomes disruptive or continues to seriously disrupt the program, temporary or permanent removal from the class or program will be considered. We reserve the right to drop students for disruptive behavior of either the child or parent, for non-payment of tuition and for repeated tardiness.

Student Contact Information:

It is the responsibility of the Parent/Guardian who has enrolled the child to keep all contact information up to date, including, but not limited to: phone numbers, email addresses, home addresses, information regarding any change of guardianship, and information regarding alternate contacts or additional persons picking up your child. We are not responsible for failure to contact parents for any reason if such failure to contact parents is due to outdated or erroneous contact information.
