 If you would like to register online, please click on this link.  The schedule is not included on this form, so you will need to refer back to the schedule for details.  After school Club FAQ's can be found here.

 OR, you can register via paper form - see form below for you to print and submit via the PTO box in the main office or your child's folder (subject to human error).  A hard copy will also go home in your child's/children's folder(s).  Copies of the registration form tand schedule can be found here .

>>>NEW<<< Pick-up Procedure: To avoid disrupting the YWCA After-care program, the Clubs have moved the pick-up location to the entrance across from the main entrance, to the left if looking at the school; the doors are located between the gym and front office.  A club lead will be waiting there to dismiss students going home.

Payment Procedure: 

Payment is requested after receiving confirmation that your child has been enrolled in a club. The fee is $10/meeting (e.g., a club with 5 meetings costs $50), to defray the costs of the educator and materials.  Payment must be received by Friday, March 31, 2017, at 3 p.m. to guarantee a spot in the club.  Scholarship funds are available through direct and confidential inquiry to Principal Valerie Ulrich. Personal checks or cash are accepted.  Checks should be made out to "Riverside PTO".  On the memo line, please write the child's name and "Spring Clubs".  Payment should be place in the PTO Box in the Riverside front office.  Please include the check or cash along with the payment form in an envelope marked with your child's name.


For each club we will be seeking a Lead Volunteer (parent, guardian, sitter, grandparent, friend) who can commit to attending all sessions, taking attendance, escorting children to and from the bathroom, and helping with set-up, clean up, and pick-up.  Club fees will be waived for children of the Lead Volunteer (up to two waivers per family).  Additional volunteers are always welcome, for any number of sessions.  Volunteer recruitment will begin after notification of the results of the registration process.


Each child should bring a nut-free snack.  No snacks will be provided.  No snack-time for Science clubs.

There are many details and instructions, so we greatly appreciate your review of the information.  

Thank you!
