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.

Families will be sent an enrollment confirmation via e-mail before the start of each class. Please be sure the email address you provide during registration is the email you will read most frequently as this is the method we will use to communicate cancelled classes or confirmations throughout the session. Further communication will ONLY be made if there is a problem with your registration or if your child did not get into a class. DO NOT call the school for class placement confirmation. Make note of the dates of your child’s activity, remind your child and plan accordingly. No further reminders will be sent home.

MAKE-UP POLICY: After-school classes will NOT be held if Loudoun County Public Schools are closed. If there is inclement weather, classes held outdoors may be cancelled and parents will be notified by an e-mail that day. Every effort will be made to schedule a make-up class. However, if make-up classes cannot be scheduled in a timely manner, prorated refunds will NOT be issued.

SESSION INFORMATION:

Class locations will be posted under the ASAP tab of the SLES PTA website and in the front hall the first week of classes as well as every day that there is an ASAP class. If your child cannot attend a class, you must call the school by 1:00 pm or send a note with your child’s name, ASAP class and the date that the child will be absent. This is extremely important so that we may account for your child’s whereabouts.

Spanish 101- Grades K-3: (Mrs. Splett)- Hola! the Spanish 101 Course is a fun, play-based class for K-3rd 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.
