Registration for PS10 Extended Day fall programming is now open! Thank you for your patience as we allowed families to receive their cohort assignments. Returning families can register through your Jumbula account. New families and families who forgot their Jumbula information can gain access through https://www.ps10extendedday.com/copy-of-register


A few things you should know before registering: 


The only in-person programming we can offer at this time is the Outdoor Camps. Extended Day does not have access to the PS10 school building this year. Curriculum Support and Enrichment classes are online with no more than 10 students per class to ensure personalized attention for your student. 


- Our intent is for ALL students to have access to Extended Day programming. As we have every year, we offer robust scholarships and will work with families so that no student who wants to participate is left out. Funding for scholarships is predicated on as many members of the community participating in our program as possible; the more families that participate, the more scholarships we can offer. If you or a family you know is interested in a scholarship please fill out this form.


- Our programming is meant to supplement what your student will receive from the DOE, not replace it. As the DOE/PS10 schedules are announced and adjusted, we may need to shift the timing of classes on our side. We will also continue to add classes if needed. 


- Registration is ongoing. We realize that no one is certain what a school day will entail yet. You may choose to register for some classes now and return at a later date to add to your student’s schedule.


- The Extended Day fall programming will begin September 14th regardless of the official start of school. In the event there is a delay of opening, the only class that will not proceed is Homework Help. In this instance, refunds for the number of days missed would be processed. 


Outdoor Camp is open for all students (hybrid and 100% remote learners) grades K thru 5. Students can register for both the early camp and the after school camp if their school schedule allows for it. When you register, please select your child’s cohort (Cohort A, Cohort B or 100% remote) so you are registering for the correct days/times. Exact start and dismissal times will be emailed to you once we have created Outdoor Camp cohorts and have a finalized schedule from the DOE/PS10.


Thank you for your understanding and flexibility as we launch this new program. As always, we are here if you have any questions.

Updated: Aug 26

The upcoming school year looks different and so does the PTA Extended Day. Based on parent survey results, we’ve completely reinvented ourselves to better serve PS10 families. We are excited to introduce our brand-new fall offerings: Outdoor Camp- We will take students to Prospect Park, Greenwood Cemetery, and other places around the neighborhood to engage in active play and learn the history of Brooklyn and Park Slope.  There are two sessions to accommodate all students (*timing dependent on final school schedule). Our unique neighborhood exploring groups will adhere as closely as possible to DOE-assigned classroom cohorts,while also mandating face coverings and using child-safe sanitation practices in order to minimize viral spread. Curriculum Support- We have hired expert educators in math, reading and writing, and science to supplement your student’s learning. Teachers will pace with PS10 curriculum and teach remotely in small groups of no more than 10 children. In addition, we have educators on hand during remote learning days and after school to offer small group homework help to get your child moving on their posted assignments. Online Enrichment- Featuring beloved classes from Extended Day, plus many new ones that will soon become fan favorites, we have moved our classic enrichment program online to offer fun, exciting classes in small groups no larger than 10 students.  Classes are available at 3 and 4pm.   While there are still many unknowns about what a typical remote school day will look like, we are ready to adjust and fill in the gaps as they present themselves. Our goal is to help make sure your student has as much continuous, remote live instruction as possible while also offering safe outdoor activities.   What has always made PS10’s Extended Day unique is the amount of scholarships we offer to our families. Right now, when many families are facing unforeseen hardships, we feel equal access to these unique programs are more important than ever. Scholarships for these programs are predicated on as many members of the community participating in our program as possible. We hope we can all come together as a community to help support one another. Registration will open when the PS10 schedule and calendar are announced. In the meantime, take a look at what we have lined up so far by visiting www.ps10extendedday.com Please feel free to email us with any questions, or concerns you may have.  

While the landscape for the upcoming school year is still to be determined, we want to let you know that the Extended Day team is busy preparing for fall so we can support our families as best we can. 


Currently we are updating our policies for health and safety as well as planning ways to get your student as much small group, live online instruction and small group outings as we possibly can.


Here’s what we plan to offer:


- Outdoor Outings & Activities: Small groups of children will be matched with two of our line staff to go on walks around the neighborhood or do activities in the park. Groups and staff will remain consistent to the best of our ability and we are exploring ways to accommodate already formed pods. We’re working to make this option available for both the days your student is in school and for remote learning days.


- Curriculum Supplement: Remote learning sessions for small groups of students (6-10) will be offered in math, science, ELA, art and homework help. The curriculum will be taught live online by experienced educators and will reinforce the curriculum being taught by their classroom teacher.


- Online Enrichment: Remote learning sessions of unique, online enrichment classes for small groups of students (6-10) will be taught live online by instructors who are experienced and passionate about the subject they are teaching.


- Brick and Mortar Extended Day: We continue to work closely with the PS10 administration to see if we can run any portion of the program on-site for the days the students attend classes.


As always, we hope to remain an affordable option for our PS10 community and are working with the PTA on funding opportunities to help keep costs down for our families as well as provide scholarships so that our program is available to all in our school community.


We hope to have more information to you regarding registration by the end of August so please stay tuned.


Thank you for your patience and your continued support.
