Enrichment Classes & Teams
The Wood Acres PTA is proud to offer before- and after-school enrichment opportunities for our students.
The PTA has partnered with Flex Academies to offer classes such as chess, yoga, art, musical theater, music, film-making and cooking. Flex currently works with several other schools in the Whitman Cluster. Using Flex allows us to offer more enrichment programs directly onsite at Wood Acres. Flex performs background checks on all its instructors to ensure a safe and welcoming environment for all students.
The PTA also offers STEM classes in partnership with Great Adventure Lab and Girls for Good. Registration for the STEM classes are announced through WoodNet four weeks before each session starts and classes are reserved on a first-come, first-served basis. These classes offer students exposure to Robotics, Programming, Engineering, STEM Literacy, and Sustainability.
There are also Foreign Language classes after school in Spanish, French and Chinese offered in 24 week sessions through Big Learning.
Lastly, a number of Wood Acres parents have formed Odyssey of the Mind and LEGO Robotics teams to represent Wood Acres at local and even national competitions. These teams are not organized by the PTA, but we do provide information and resources on the PTA website to organize your own team.
In addition to these enrichment opportunities provided by the PTA, you will also receive flyers from the school about other extra curricular classes in the area and sometimes at school. These classes are not sponsored by the PTA and, if you have questions about them, you should use the contact information on these flyers to get more information.
Note that none of the PTA’s enrichment programs are fundraisers for the PTA – this ensures that the classes are offered to our students at the lowest prices possible. If you have any questions pertaining to the enrichment programs, contact the appropriate program coordinator:
