Spring 2020 After School Enrichment Program registration opens at 6:00 am on Tuesday, February 4th (closing at 11:45 pm on Tuesday, February 11th).

Please note:

  • ASEP Registration is primarily held online. If you are interested in registering your child and do not have access to do so online, paper registration forms are being sent home and will be available in the office.
  • Classes are filled on a first-come, first-served basis.
  • Your child’s spot in the class is not secured until confirmation of payment has been received. For online payments, you will know you are registered if you receive 2 receipts: one from PayPal and one from Catoctin PTA. For in-person (cash or check) payments, you will receive a confirmation email from the ASEP Coordinator(s).
  • Classes that do not reach their minimum enrollment will be canceled. If your child’s class is canceled, you will be contacted by email, and you may choose to enroll in another class that still has space available.
  • We cannot accommodate late registrations.
  • Financial assistance may be available. Please contact Jessica Cummings, Parent Liaison (jessica.cummings@lcps.org)  or Janet Platenberg, Principal, (janet.platenberg@lcps.org) for more information.

Spring 2020 Class Catalog  






Art and Yoga

2 – 5




These sessions will combine yoga breaths and movements, using Art as the vehicle for mindfulness. We will celebrate our 5 senses, create glitter bottles, rainbow mosaics, and mandalas, and play brain games to help us focus. We will connect our minds with our breath and our bodies to help us learn to regulate our emotions. NOTE: Participants will eat ONE raisin for a mindfulness activity, in case of any allergies.

This course is a repeat of the Fall 2019 session. If your child participated in the Fall, please consider a different ASEP course so that other students may have a chance to participate.

Bakeless Desserts with Ms. Weber





Join Mrs. Weber and learn to create a different bakeless dessert each week! Allergen alert: Ingredients used in this class may include milk, soy, nuts, or tree nuts.

Cupcake Decorating and More!





Join Mrs. Corcoran and get ready to have some fun! In this class, students will decorate cupcakes and other tasty treats each week!

Silver Knights Chess Club




No limit!

Chess clubs split time between lessons and play. Lessons range from learning the rules to advanced tournament strategies, depending on the children. State and national champions have come from our programs, but most of our students are just looking to have fun! Playtime is structured to pair each student against an opponent of similar skill.

Sports/Fitness Club





Are you ready for Sports Club with Mr. Shepard? In this club, we will focus on the values of respect and responsibility while participating in fun, cooperative games. Mr. Shepard hopes to see all our Cardinals flying into this club! Remember to sign up early as this class has filled quickly in years past. See you soon!

ZooBots Robotics Club





ZooBots is a unit filled with animal bots that roll, waddle, walk and talk. Create the penguin on your first day of the club and progress to crocodiles, mudskippers, and gorillas. Each week students make something new and learn how gears, simple machines, and LEGO code work together to make something FUN!

Build, code and have fun with LEGO® WeDo 2.0. Enhance kids’ curiosity and science skills with Silver Knights Robotics. Students will explore robotics with LEGO® bricks, easy-to-use coding software, and engaging STEM challenges. Kids work in pairs with a tablet and a LEGO® WeDo 2.0 kit that includes over 250 pieces, a SmartHub, motor, and motion and tilt sensors.
