PTSA Enrichment Policies Prior to enrolling your child, please be sure to read through our  Program Policies. By registering for any PTSA after-school program, you agree to comply with these policies.

Statement of Inclusion The enrichment program strives to be inclusive of all students in the Horace Mann learning community. If your student requires accommodations or you are in need of financial assistance please email the enrichment coordinator at  enrichment@mannptsa.org. All inquires are confidential.

Parent Volunteer Requirement Enrichment classes must have a PTSA Parent Volunteer present during each and every class.  We are moving towards a new model and would like one primary parent for each class to simplify the process for the enrichment volunteers and for the parents participating in the program.  If you would like to be a dedicated parent for spring quarter, we will guarantee a spot for your child and you get the class for free (except Running Club)! You can share responsibilities with a friend as well or reach out to other parents if you need assistance fulfilling chaperone duties for every class.  Reach out to us at enrichment@mannptsa.org to sign up! For classes that do not have a dedicated parent, you will be required to sign-up to chaperone at least once depending on the number of days and students enrolled. 

Parent volunteers must meet the following requirements:

  • Must be over the age of 18.
  • Must be a current Horace Mann PTSA member.
  • Must have a LWSD volunteer approved application on file with the district.

Want to be a dedicated parent for one of the classes? E-mail enrichment@mannptsa.org
