Events & Activities

After School Groups/Activities:

For information about after school opportunities, please remember to register at This is where all the flyers for activities are located. 

In 2017-18, the following After School Groups are meeting:


The Winterhaven PTSA established a scholarship fund for after school activities with the goal of ensuring all students are able to participate in enrichment activities that take place at the school. We have allocated funds to support this goal and will use the 2017-2018 year to pilot our approach. We will strive to provide funds to all families who request them and to negotiate with the vendors offering these activities to encourage them to provide additional scholarships to supplement PTSA efforts.

Up to two scholarships per child per year will be provided to families who qualify for free/reduced lunch. Families will pay for 25% of the cost of the program and the scholarship and arrangements with the vendor will cover the rest of the cost. Scholarships will be provided in the order they are requested until the funds allocated by the PTSA are spent. The PTSA board will evaluate the approach at the end of the pilot school year and make recommendations to strengthen the program for future years.

For more information about the scholarship please contact our Scholarship administrator, Sam Kubernick
