Lincoln Extended Learning

UPDATE for Nov 4, 2019: Registration for Fall 2019 extended learning courses is now closed. Unfortunately we did not meet the enrollment minimum for Art in the Afternoon and this course will therefore not run this session. Refunds to those who had registered will be processed this week.

Another slate of Extended Learning courses is here thanks to the enthusiasm and creativity of our Lincoln teachers! Highlights for the Fall 2019 session include:

  • Seven available courses that meet on Mon, Weds or Thurs

  • Two new courses: Crazy 8 Math Club and Keyboarding & More

  • Previous favorites, including Open Studio, Newspaper Club, Floor Hockey & Art in the Afternoon (previously Painting in the Park or Classroom)

  • Due to constraints in teachers' schedules, some past popular courses are not able to be offered this session. We hope to offer courses such as Breakfast Club, Yoga & Mindfulness and Science Kids again in the Winter session (~week of Jan 13, 2020 - week of Mar 23, 2020) and/or Spring session (~week of Mar 30, 2020 - week of Jun 1, 2020).

Registration for the Fall 2019 Extended Learning session opened on Monday, September 23rd; for any registration questions, please email us here.

 

Registration is on a first-come, first-served basis and payment is *only* via PayPal. Once registered, you can assume your child is enrolled unless we contact you.

 

The registration web form does not automatically block enrollment if a club has reached maximum enrollment and is full; rather, we must monitor this manually. In the event that a program is over-enrolled, we will contact you and issue a refund. Once we determine that a club has reached full enrollment, we will disable the payment option for that club. Therefore, if the payment option for a club does not appear, the club is full.  Conversely, we occasionally need to cancel a program due to under-enrollment. In this event, we will also contact you and issue a refund. Thank you for your understanding!  Students on free or reduced lunch are eligible for scholarships (please contact the office for further information).  

 

Requests for cancellations & refunds do occur as student schedules change; therefore, please email us here if you would like to have your student added to a re-contact list for a club that is full. If you have any other questions related to the extended learning program, please contact us here.

In addition to a team of Lincoln Staff members who will help the students hone their new skills, we will be joined by high school students who write the newspaper at Winchester High School. Their expertise will help the elementary students with their research and writing, and their technical skills will ensure that our young reporters are able to edit their work and format it for the newspaper.
