What are TC Clubs? How many clubs can my child take?
In 2019-2020, Teachers College is organizing after school enrichment clubs for students in grades K-5 (grades 6-8 may enroll in Orchestra only). The following clubs are available for each grade level:
Kindergarten: Music and Movement
1st/2nd Grades: Science Discovery and Recorder (musical instrument)
3rd Grade: Recorder and Yoga
4th Grades: Recorder, Yoga, and Orchestra
5th Grade: Creative Technology and Orchestra
6th-8th Grades: Orchestra
Each club can accommodate up to 10-15 students and participation is free (except for activity fees for Orchestra).
Students may sign up for up to two clubs per week.
TC Clubs will tentatively run from September 16, 2019 to December 20, 2019 and resume on January 22, 2020 to May 8, 2020.
What Are the Hours?
K-2nd grade clubs start at 2:35pm and dismissal is at 4:30pm. They are held at the Lower School location (223 W 132nd Street).
3rd-8th grade clubs start at 2:55 and dismissal is at 4:50. They are held at the Upper School location (168 Morningside Avenue).
Parents must pick up their children no later than 5pm unless they are also signed up for the Roads to Success program on that day, in which case they dismiss at 6pm.
What is a Typical Day?
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.
Parents have the option to also enroll their children in the after school program provided by Roads to Success throughout the year in addition to participating in TC Clubs. However, the Roads to Success program will not be discounted for students enrolled in TC clubs on the same day. Prices for Roads to Success program options (3, 4 or 5 days/week) are included in the Roads to Success materials.
Parents whose children are only enrolled in TC Clubs have the option to sign them up for the Roads to Success program between January 2 and 21, and May 11 through the end of the school year. Please consult the Roads to Success brochure for details.
