Registration for SPRING 2019 After School Enrichment Classes for Ceramics Session 3, Spanish 1 and Hip Hop Hooray with Nagata Dance will open Saturday, December 15th at 9:00am.


Alamo enrichment programs offer many choices for before and after school enrichment classes for your children.  The Friends of Alamo School Foundation supports the operation of most of our before/after school enrichment programming.  All net proceeds from these classes support in-school enrichment for all Alamo students.

Notification of registration dates will be made via the Gator Weekly, the Wednesday Envelope, MySchoolAnywhere emails and the PTA google group.  Please be sure to subscribe to the electronic communications offered  or check your Wednesday Envelope!

Please note that space is limited, the classes fill quickly, and classes do not meet during every week of the school year. Some offerings have gaps in between sessions, and some do not meet on early dismissal days.  So, please understand these are enrichment classes only, and do not make for consistent childcare.  Please mark your calendar accordingly.

Please read below for registration dates, class schedules, and pricing. Registrations must be submitted online. Follow any of the links below to the registration page. Questions or problems with online payments? Please email enrichment@friendsofalamo.org, or leave a note in the FASF Enrichment Classes mailbox in the Alamo office.
