After School Winter Registration

Registration Opens Friday, Nov 15th at Noon
See link at bottom of Letter

Dear ESMS Families,

Online registration for winter trimester will open today at 12:00 pm EST.  Please read this e-mail carefully as it contains important information relating to the winter after school registration process. You will find a link to the online registration form at the bottom of this e-mail.

 Please note the following, prior to registering: 

Winter Sports

You’ll notice that for tryout-based sports (boys and girls basketball) you can only check if your child is attending tryouts. If your son/daughter is planning on trying out for a sports team, please indicate which tryout they will attend. If your child is selected for a team, you will be notified soon after tryouts and your child will automatically be added to the roster. You may select an alternative activity, should your child not make the team. Game and practice schedules will be sent once all sports rosters are confirmed.

 Boys Basketball Tryouts (Varsity & JV)- Monday November 18th (3:30-5:40pm)

Boys Basketball Callbacks (By Invite ONLY)- Tuesday November 19th (3:30-5:40pm)

Girls Basketball Tryouts (Varsity & JV)- Thursday November 21st (3:30-5:40pm)

 Debate, Model UN, LEGO Robotics & Musical Theater

If your child participated in one of these classes in the fall, they will automatically be re-enrolled this trimester, unless you let me know otherwise. 

 Study Lab

Please note that study lab is a purposeful space for students to work on homework, not simply a waiting space for the next activity. They are expected to initiate and guide their own work.  ESMS teachers and Manhattan Youth teaching assistant are present to help with any basic problems, but do know that this is not tutoring. Your child is expected to be responsible for managing their own work and time in study lab. While we encourage students to complete their work and try to monitor their progress, whether they finish work or not is up to them. Computers are available but only for strict academic use.

Attached is the Winter schedule. The only change from the tentative schedule sent out last week is drumming is back on Mondays!

Feel free to reach out with any questions or concerns.
