ASAP (After-School Activities Program) is a PTA volunteer-run program which offers after-school enrichment classes in three separate 6-week sessions each school year. The sessions are offered in Fall, Winter and Spring.
 

These classes are offered through the Seldens Landing Elementary PTA Fundraiser Program. Classes are offered after school hours at a time when health services are not available through the school. The school cannot provide health information to ASAP instructors. It is the reponsibility of parents to notify instructors of any health or medical needs. Participants are expected to follow the LCPS Student Code of Conduct. We reserve the right to remove, for the remainder of the session, any student whose inappropriate behavior disrupts the program. If an ASAP class is cancelled, parents will be notified by 1:00 p.m. The school will follow the regular dismissal plan unless the parent notifies the school office of a change.

CLASS DESCRIPTIONS MONDAY:

 

Engineering Club- Grades 3-5:  (Mrs. Springer-Post)- Students will explore engineering principles through hands-on activities. The students will gain experience using the engineer design process and learn about the many careers available in this field. 

 

Spanish 101- Grades 3-5: (Mrs. Splett)- Hola! the Spanish 101 Course is a fun, play-based class for 3rd-5th graders who have little or no background of the language. Students will begin to get in touch with the language by learning the basics. They will learn to introduce themselves, talk about their personality traits and preferences, develop a basic vocabulary for everyday objects, and understand common phrases. All this through audiovisual media, interactive and hands-on activities, songs, games and dialogue practice that will give them the ability to get a basic understanding of the language and be able to start a basic conversation in Spanish. A foreign language is an excellent source to help children's development in many ways. The children's cognitive skill will improve together with their creative thinking. It helps them achieve greater confidence as they go along and their ability to communicate with people outside their language group gives them many enriched experiences.

Come on out and engage in fun, educational, brain challenging games! Some games are individual, while others have you competing against a number of different opponents.
