Teachers College is in the process of scheduling a wide variety of engaging and educational clubs for TCCS students. The sign up Google Form should be available within the next few weeks. Please check your email and stay tuned for the link.
Here are a few details regarding TC Clubs for 2019-2020:
Teachers College offers after school enrichment clubs that are open to Kindergarten-5th grade students (6th-8th grade students can register for Orchestra).
Students may sign up for 1-2 clubs (2-3 days a week), at no cost to families.
TC graduate students primarily teach the clubs, who have expertise in the area they are teaching.
Students receive a snack and participate in one or more enrichment clubs, which are tailored to different age groups.
TC Clubs will begin as soon as possible when school starts in September and will run through December 20th, 2019. They will start up again on January 22nd, 2020 and run through May 8th, 2020.
K-2nd grade clubs start at 2:35 pm and dismissal is at 4:30 pm. They are held at the Lower School location (223 W 132nd Street)
3rd-8th grade clubs start at 2:55 pm and dismissal is at 4:50 pm. They are held at the Upper School location (168 Morningside Avenue)
Most TC Clubs last 50 minutes. On a typical day, students enrolled in TC Clubs spend 25 minutes in the cafeteria for snack, another 25 minutes in the gym or playground for a movement activity, and 50 minutes in the classroom, for their respective clubs. Some clubs last 80 minutes, which leaves 25 minutes for students to snack and no time for a movement activity.
The following clubs are available for each grade level (these are subject to change and more details will follow ASAP):
Kindergarten: Music, Movement
1st/2nd Grades: Music (potentially recorder), Science Discovery
3rd Grade: Recorder, Yoga
4th Grade: Recorder, Orchestra, Yoga,
