After School Programs:

The YMCA manages our After School Programs, in collaboration with Smith PTSA.

The YMCA has a slate of programs that they run, as well as a concurrent slate of vendors that we are accustomed to seeing at our after school programs (such as Chess club, Fast-Track Math, etc.).  The Y also offers an "Enrichment Pass" that allows your student to select from an entire slate of YMCA offered classes at Smith for one monthly fee.  You do not have to sign up for the full YMCA session “Enrichment Pass”, you can elect to sign up for only the particular programs that your child is interested in.  More information about the "Enrichment Pass" can be found here: [YMCA BASE Info] (Click the Lake Washington School District link to find more info specific to our school.)

Vendor-run classes include 'Lego engineering and coding', Chess Club, Fast-Track Math, Art classes and Drama/theater.
YMCA run classes include things like Dodgeball, Jewelry Making, Rocket Science, Fantastic Fiction and more.
Registration for all classes is now handled via the YMCA registration system.  Start here and look up classes where Location = Samantha Smith Elementary: [YMCA]
