Yipee! Glee Club (choir) is starting !
Singers & Families, please help spread the word (info. flyer).
Fall 2018 Glee Club (Choir) first class/rehearsal (“trial class”) happens Wednesday, August 29th, 1:35-2:25pm in Korematsu’s band room. [Thanks Ms. Carrico, band and music program director, for welcoming choir back for the Fall.]
Sign-ups are welcome up until enrollment closes on September 12th. By the 12th, we’ll finalize the roster and provide it to the BACR after school Program Site Director because, for safety, the program tracks which students are on campus during the after school hours (even those not registered with BACR). FYI also BACR would gladly include your student in their supper/meal program after school (working with BACR on this aspect).
So that Ms. Wu can focus her talents on teaching vocal music, Mary and I have stepped up for administrative and operational details. For Fall 2018, we’re looking for a couple of parents that can lend a hand, for example, we give Ms. Wu a lift from Madera every week so she can make it on time for class.
To secure your student’s spot for the Fall Session, submit $150 payment (15 class sessions) soonest (latest by 9/12) OR let us know your student will be on scholarship (or need a payment plan). With some families contributing to a scholarship fund, our goal is to cover whatever scholarships are needed, hopefully in full!
If you’re able to contribute towards a scholarship fund, whatever amount, please do.

ENRICHMENT CLASSES FOR MIDDLE SCHOOLERS
The El Cerrito Recreation Department is excited to offer Enrichment Classes for Middle Schoolers!
This fall, professional instructors will lead classes in Martial Arts, Public Speaking, Cooking and Athletics for middle school students. Classes will be held conveniently at Castro Clubhouse right next to Korematsu Middle School, and take place shortly after the bell rings. Enrichment Classes provide a safe place for your student to go after school, and helps them to discover and develop new passions and interests.
Please see the attached flyer for class descriptions, fees and schedules. To register, stop by the El Cerrito Community Center at 7007 Moeser Lane or visit www.el-cerrito.org/onlinereg. Registration is now open!
With enough enrollments and support, we hope to grow this program with new classes over the year. If you or someone you know might be interested in teaching a class for middle schoolers, please feel free to refer them to the Recreation Department. You can also contact us with any questions regarding these classes.
