Afterschool Rocks! is our after-school enrichment program for all students in grades kindergarten through 5th grade. Classes and clubs are held after school, one day a week, for approximately 60 to 90 minutes, for 12 to 14 weeks throughout the semester. Classes this semester will begin the week of January 27-31, 2020 and will end the week of May 4 -8, 2020. We have 9 classes and clubs for this Winter/Spring 2020 semester – some are returning favorites and some are new! The packet will be sent home with your child (hard copy), will be sent to you in a School Messenger email RIGHT NOW!), will be available on the PTA website, and additional hard copies are already on the front hallway tables.


Prices for the classes generally range from $75 per child, per class to $200 per child, per class - depending on the class type and size, materials required, and number of teachers for the class. 


Partial and full scholarships are sometimes available. 


Donations are accepted to help provide scholarships. Funds collected for AfterSchool Rocks! may be used in the following ways: to pay AfterSchool Rocks! teachers and coordinators for their valuable time, knowledge and expertise; to purchase materials and snacks for classes and clubs, as needed; to provide allowed transportation for AfterSchool Rocks! clubs (Student Council to Santa Fe Roundhouse trip); to provide full and partial scholarships to students enabling them to participate in this enrichment program. AfterSchool Rocks! monies are sometimes used to fund continuing student enrichment and educational activities throughout MV classrooms and our community.


Classes and clubs are usually taught and led by Monte Vista staff members and/or Monte Vista community members (parents, former students who are APS employees). Paula Jackson, retired educator and former Monte Vista Physical Education teacher is the AfterSchool Rocks! Program Coordinator. Questions? Concerns? You can reach Paula (me!) at:
