Canyon Creek PTA After School Programs

Spring 2018-19

We are excited to announce FOUR (4) after school classes offered this spring! Make sure to read the details below - and check out the classes offered.

6crickets logoWe are using a PORTAL called 6crickets to book and manage all after school programs - so you will want to get setup for that prior to registration opening, to ensure quick booking.

  • Register online at 6crickets (Canyon Creek page). Make sure to pre-register before March 7th.

  • Registration opens Thursday, March 7th @ 8:00am and closes Tuesday, March 12th @ 11:59pm.

  • First Come, First Served

  • A PTA chaperone must be present in every class that is held. The PTA chaperone must be an adult (over 18 years old), must be a current PTA member, and must be a Canyon Creek Elementary approved volunteer. A scholarship is provided for one student per class whose parent is the chaperone for the entire session. (If there is more than one volunteer for this position, a name can be drawn from a hat). Contact Melanie McKenzie at to volunteer to be chaperone and receive the scholarship.

  • Any class without a PTA chaperone present will be cancelled for the day.

WAITLIST FYI - if a class if full when you try to register, feel free to add your student to the waitlist. If someone decides to drop out of the class, the waitlist is used to fill that spot. Also, if the provider sees a high level of interest in a class, they may try to add another teacher!

The Sponge Spanish class will continue for the entire year for already registered students, after school on Tuesdays, in the library.

Chess Wizards is one of the nation’s premier chess education companies and is so popular with kids because of our unique structure. First, we let kids get the wiggles and giggles out with 10 minutes of free play and review of past taught topics. We then go right into the week's lessons. We separate students based on skill levels and teach different lessons best suited to their individual needs. All lessons have an activity and homework to accompany them and we have well over 80 different lessons to keep challenging our little wizards! Our interactive, discovery-based curriculum inspires students to think ahead, visualize their goals, treat others with respect and to learn from mistakes. Our classes are geared to suit children of all skill levels; from chessling to checkmate artist, students will build upon their knowledge through lessons, tournaments, variation games and more! Let us coach your kids to a higher level of education!
