ATTENTION 2ND GRADERS!  World of Wordcraft: A Debate Team for Kids is now open for grades 2-5. Learn the power of persuasion and make your case in this adventure in debating. Students are given the tools for developing self-confidence, public speaking skills, building a powerful vocabulary, and learning the finer points of language arts. Games are used to teach the art of organizing and articulating ideas, structuring and supporting arguments, listening, countering and more. Don't delay! Sign up today!

Registration for our Winter Session continues at www.mbxfoundation.org. All the information, including the schedule and description of classes is posted there. Classes will be confirmed or canceled based on enrollment on January 22.

Classes begin on January 29 for 8 weeks, with the exception of Thursday classes which meet for 7 weeks and Musical Theatre which meets for 9 weeks.

Important Registration Information: Returning students can use the same login account that was created previously. Just make sure your grade, teacher, room number, early/late schedule, EDP status and other information is updated during registration. If you are new to PASE, you will need to create an account in the name of an adult family member and then add your child to your account during the registration process.

Cross District Enrollment: Enrollment is now open for classes at other sites. During registration, filter your search by the school location where the class is offered. Transportation is the responsibility of the parent/guardian.

Are you looking for an extra challenge after school? Why not try Cardistry and Magic Club. One of Pacific's Panthers, Charlie Dickey, will be part of leading the activities. Or take your learning to a "new level" with the World of Wordcraft: A Debate Team for Kids  now open for grades 2-5. The Exciting World of Robotics meets on Fridays at Meadows for grades 3-5. 

We have lots of exciting opportunities this session! Are you interested in dinosaurs? Dino World for grades K-3 offers a fun, hands-on class that explores the different eras through project based activities including dino digs and fossil hunts.

Classes are offered for all grade levels, as well as Kinder only classes on Monday and Tuesday that meet right after Kindergarten dismissal. Children will be picked up from their classrooms for a light snack and then escorted to their enrichment class.

Please note: If a desired class is full, you can be added to the Wait List by clicking on the class. Make sure to select the Wait List and not the Wish List.

No Classes: February 19-23 (Presidents' Holiday Recess) and March 15 (Open House Minimum Day).

EDP: If your child attends EDP, his/her after school enrichment schedule will be carefully coordinated with the EDP staff to ensure that students are escorted by the PASE staff to/from EDP as required.

Supervision: Parents are not expected to return to school after dismissal if there is time between dismissal and the enrichment class, with the exception of a Kinder enrolled in a 3:00 class. There is no supervision for this eventuality. All other students are supervised at all times within the Snacktivity period and any other early block of time until class begins.

Kinder Only Classes: Specific information will be available online along with class confirmation before the start date of the session for kindergarten students enrolled in the 1:35 class on Monday and Tuesday. Kinders will be picked up from their classrooms right after Kindergarten dismissal for a snack and then escorted to their enrichment class. Kinder students are also able to enroll in 3:00 classes on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday. However, supervision is not provided until 2:15 unless students are also enrolled in the earlier 1:35 class. Students enrolled in Wednesday 1:50 classes will be picked up at their classrooms at dismissal and escorted to their enrichment class. Students at EDP will be picked up by PASE staff at 2:15 for 3:00 classes.

Reporting to Classes: Our Snacktivity location is the tables outside of the Cafeteria. Students grades 1-5 will report to the tables outside of the Cafeteria immediately following classroom dismissal. FIRST WEEK ONLY: FIRST GRADERS (early and late birds) will be picked up at their classrooms and escorted to the Snacktivity location by PASE staff. Beginning week two, these students will walk to the tables outside of the Cafeteria on their own.

Pick Up: Pick up is at the Cafeteria tables/Zone. There is no dismissal from the class location. Students who are meeting parents at the Zone carpool line must notify PASE staff before leaving the school grounds. If your child has permission to walk or bike home alone, this must be indicated on the registration forms. These students also must check out with PASE staff. Do not leave your car unattended in the Zone. If you are picking up at the snack area, please park on the street outside of the Zone.

Procedures for Non Pacific Students: MBUSD students from other schools should report to the Snacktivity location (the tables outside of the Cafeteria) for check in. Parents may drive through The Zone at 14th Street and John or park on the street for drop off and pick up.

Rainy Day Schedule: We will meet in the Cafeteria after school on all rainy days when and if it is available. We will use the Art Room if the Cafeteria is not available. PASE staff will be at the outside lunch tables immediately following classroom dismissal to direct students to an indoor location. Our regular procedures of reporting for PASE activities will remain the same. Outdoor classes will have indoor instruction during rainy days.
