Enrichments

For fall 2021, we are able to offer outdoor, offsite and virtual programs. A full schedule of onsite after-school programs, offered daily and across a range of subjects, will be available when Covid precautions change.

If you are a parent with questions or a provider who is interested in offering a class, please contact the parent volunteer coordinator of community school at clairecmiller@gmail.com.

Additionally, Camp Fire Columbia, a non-profit organization, is contracted with PPS to provide before and after care at Fernwood for all grades. Space is limited and offered by lottery. Click here for more information and to register online.
