ELEMENTARY SCHOOL ACTIVITIES

 

The Online Registration will open Friday, January 25th at 3pm and close Wednesday, January 30th at 3pm. You can download the full ES Explore Booklet here.

Our Elementary School Explore Program brings students and adults together in meaningful and rewarding co-curricular activities. These activities are an important piece in your child’s learning experience . . . and they also are lots of fun! Our ES Explore Program instructors are parents, teachers, instructional assistants and other professionals who are eager to spend this valuable time with your children.

ISB’s ES Explore Program recognizes and celebrates that learning can take many different forms. Sometimes it can look like work in a classroom and sometimes it can look like play. While it might look like “play” to us adults, to children, there never really is a time when “learning is ‘supposed’ to happen”.

On any afternoon, a tour of our wide range of ES Explore Program will reveal our ES children happily engaged in activities that add a special dimension to their learning experience here at ISB.

Because of the wide ranging interests and needs of our ES children, our program aims to give all our students the opportunity to explore and develop new interests, as well as having the chance to develop interests or skills they already have.

If you have any questions, or if you have any suggestions for additions to our program, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Sincerely,

Livnat Ziskinder

In the event that more students apply for an activity than can be accommodated, the procedure for selecting students for the activity is followed to be as fair as possible:

Upon the close of registration the ES Explore Program coordinator will make a list of students applying for each activity.
If the number of applicants exceeds the listed maximum enrollment for an activity, the coordinator will construct a list giving priority to applicants who are applying for an activity for the first time.
The coordinator will then randomly draw names from the remaining list of applicants.
If your child is not placed in their 1st Choice he/she will be placed in the listed 2nd Choice activity for that day providing that the activity has not reached maximum enrollment. If the replacement activity is also full, you will be contacted to make another choice.
All classes have a minimum enrollment level of twelve (12) students. If an offering does not reach minimum enrollment, that activity will be cancelled, and your child will be placed in their listed 2nd Choice, or you will be contacted to make another choice.

If you are not contacted, you may assume that your child has been placed in either their first choice or second choice activity.
If your child needs to withdraw from an activity please contact the ES Explore Program coordinator directly. This must be done before the ES Explore Program schedule has started.
There is a NO REFUND policy for ES Explore Program.
If your child wishes to switch ES Explore Program choice we would ask that this be done prior to the 3rd ES Explore Program session.

As you can imagine, the set up of each semester is quite hectic! Having you meet onetime-deadlines, fully completing applications and making correct payments helps us tremendously.
