PTO Enrichment Zone (E-Zone) offers after-school electives in literature, science, art, athletics, math, technology, culture, and more in three 6-week sessions throughout the school year.
Please use this web page to keep up-to-date on E-Zone information. Session dates can be found below and the E-Zone calendar below will be kept up-to-date with the dates for registration, class schedules, registration details, etc.
We are currently working on the schedule for the Winter session of E-Zone. The catalog will be posted as soon as it is completed.
Questions? Please email Helen Boyd, the 2018-19 E-Zone Coordinator.
E-Zone is excited to announce that this year we have partnered with Boolean Girl, a non-profit based in Arlington, VA. Boolean Girl’s goal is, ‘to inspire and encourage girls in third through eighth grades to code, build, invent and animate.' Boolean Girl will be offering an Introduction to Programming in Scratch for 3rd-5th grade girls class on Tuesdays. If there is enough demand, we will add a class on Wednesdays. Please see the E-Zone catalog for more details..
This is a pilot program for this session. The cost is being kept as the same as other E-Zone classes, with the PTO covering the additional costs. However, future sessions will have a higher fee ($140), to cover the full costs per student. If you are interested in making a donation towards the cost of this class, please contact Helen Boyd at email@example.com.

Reminders and Updates
The office will assume that any child signed up for E-Zone for the Fall session will attend unless they receive a note from the parent stating otherwise.
If your child is signed up for E-Zone but will not be attending, please send a note to that effect. PLEASE notify the office staff at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone (434-293-9304) only if there is a change of plans during the day of the course.
If possible, please send an extra, small snack with your child to enjoy during the class.
Dismissal is through the front doors, which will be locked. Please adhere to the following dismissal guidelines: An E-Zone Administrator will be at the front doors to allow parents entry into the school. Enter the school and sign your child out on the sign-out sheet in the entryway, noting the time on the sign-out sheet. Meet your child at the pencils.
E-Zone classes on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday end at 4 PM sharp. Please be on time to pick up your child. Our E-Zone Administrators are paid by the PTO to stay until the conclusion of E-Zone. They are a very important part of the E-Zone program. They take on this responsibility at the end of a long workday. Please respect their schedules and be on time.
