We are a PTA-run, parent–developed program providing coverage and enrichment classes to PS10 families who need care beyond the regular school day.
In the summer of 2007 a small group of parents came together to create an after school program to service the students of PS10. The PS10 PTA Extended Day Program provides services to families who need care beyond the regular school day. Our goal is to give our students an opportunity to learn a craft, develop a talent or enjoy a hobby in the safe, nurturing environment of their PS10 Community. Today we service over 400 students, with over 40 weekly enrichment classes taught by PS10 teachers, in - house teaching artists and outside vendors
The PTA Extended Day Program is a massive undertaking for the PTA and we welcome parent input and involvement. Please feel free to join us on the PTA Extended Day Committee, your assistance and feedback are always welcome.
