We are excited to announce ArtsConnection’s partnership with MS 266K for the 2014-15 schoolyear! The program will offer arts classes in dance, theater, visual art, and music beginning in fall 2014 through the end of the school year.
Teaching artists, youth workers, and additional support staff have been specifically chosen to provide skills building, leadership, exploration and discovery through the art forms as well as instructional support for students in other in-school subject areas. For the second semester of the program, students will have the opportunity to focus on preparing for a final musical theater performance in June. Additional components of homework help and prep for the April Math and ELA tests are worked into the program, as well as periodic family arts workshops and emersion field trips. We are so excited for the year ahead!
The average cost of this type of afterschool program is approximately $3500 per child. However, this program will be FREE to all Park Place Community Middle School 266 Students. Due to space limitations, only 60 students will be admitted into the program. This partnership is made possible through the efforts of MS266K administration to receive funding from the Department of Youth and Community Development (DYCD). Please find initial program requirements and general schedule guidelines on the back of this letter. On-site Registration took place on Tuesday, August 26, 2014. Enrollment packages are still available.
Due to space limitations, only 60 students will be admitted into the program. There will be a wait list created for additional students. In the event that any slots become available, you may be contacted with an invitation for your child to join the program.
Students will only be accepted if this entire packet is completely filled out. Any missing information will delay consideration of your child’s application and cause him or her to be put on a waiting list.
Our funders require a physical examination form signed by your child’s physician before starting the program. Students without an recent medical form will not be accepted.

Students are asked to commit to sessions 5 days a week for the full session and will be given priority for admittance into the program. Special circumstances preventing students from committing to all 5 days will be evaluated on a case by case basis.
Once applications are completed and reviewed, you will be contacted and informed if your child has been admitted into the program. The first day of the program is Monday, September 8, 2014.
