News for 2018-19 School Year
Thank you to those who participated in the annual EAI Club Survey. This is an invaluable tool to improve the Club Program. Based upon parent survey feedback, EAI will be adding dance, Chinese and art clubs. Popular clubs will be brought back in addition to morning Spanish. Minecraft is returning and catapults added to KIBO this year.
EAI Club Experience
Enrichment Academies will offer three sessions of clubs: fall, winter and spring. Parents can view all club opportunities, at a glance, before registering.
Club Schedule Overview
EAI will provide an overview of the upcoming fall schedule at the PTA Fair on August 31st and an overview of the winter & spring clubs by mid-fall. Notifications will be sent via EagleNet and ConnectEd once the schedules are posted. Please keep in mind this is a draft schedule for the year and some revisions to the club schedules may occur.
Club catalogs will be sent home with each student (and distributed electronically) at least one week prior to the start of registration. The catalog provides details on the online registration process, club descriptions, club dates, pricing and additional club policies for parents. EAI encourages students to be part of the club selection process and collaborate with their friends in exploring opportunities.
EAI provides a simple, easy-to- use registration system. This system provides parents a weekly calendar view of the clubs along with specific club meeting dates and times. Website address and more details will be provided closer to the start of fall registration.
Open /Early Bird Enrollment
EAI offers open enrollment, with a specific registration start date. Club fees for the first four days of each registration period will feature discounted Early Bird pricing. We urge all parents to take advantage of early bird enrollment so minimum enrollment numbers can be met and accurate rosters can be distributed to instructors prior to club start dates. After the four-day Early Bird window, online club registration will be available at an additional $10 per club.
In an effort to provide proactive feedback on club activities, EAI requests that each club instructor send weekly emails (or eight week club overview) to parents of enrolled students to inform them of events in their children’s club experience. In addition, EAI provides an email (or phone call if needed) to parents of absent students. This helps parents and students adapt to the weekly after school clubs routine.
Annual Registration Fee
A registration fee of $25 is required during each students' first club registration of the school year. This is an annual fee per student per school year. Once paid, subsequent club registrations for that student during that school year will not incur this fee. This revenue from this fee helps offset the cost of providing a quality after school club program. EAI does exempt Scholarship students from the annual registration fee.

Please note: Fall clubs will start the week of October 1, 2018. Specific dates for all clubs will be included in the KP ASC Catalog and within the online registration system.

Founded and operated by Gabrielle Fontana, Enrichment Academies, Inc (EAI) is excited to manage the After School Clubs program (ASC) at Kensington Parkwood Elementary School (KP) for the KP PTA!
It is EAI’s mission to provide a rich, rewarding and diverse after school experience to students, parents and educators with a variety of price points, session times and days offered. Most clubs are offered directly after the school day and provide students opportunities to explore new activities, develop skills, exercise and connect socially with a greater cross section of their school peers outside the classroom.
