Have an idea for a club? Awesome! Contact Jenny at [email protected] to get started.
PTA-organized, after-school classes may actually be the one time during the day that a child gets to choose what they would like to learn or to be exposed to something that would not normally be available to them. Clubs are neither sponsored nor endorsed by the Fairfax County School Board, the Superintendent, or Herndon Elementary School. These programs are approved by the Herndon ES PTA.
In order for a club to be offered through the PTA, it must have a PTA member volunteer willing to coordinate and receive PTA Board approval. If there is a club that you want to see for your child, please consider volunteering to make it happen! Volunteers who offer to run a PTA-sponsored club receive one free student registration per session of that club.
We are currently working on ways to offer virtual Spring Clubs, so that students can continue their hobbies and interests and interact with other kids who may not be in their class this year but have been a part of their school experience. When the info is available, you will be able to click on the links to get specific information on each club. These are proposed clubs and may or may not end up being offered depending on volunteers and other logistical decisions.
The final round of Monday Mingle is open, with 8 free club offerings by Herndon Specialists! These clubs will last for 5 weeks and end right before Summer Break (5/29). Registration will end on Wednesday, 4/21 at 5:00pm! Watch the video here:
