- SONYC - All SONYC Programs run Monday-Friday, 2:45-5:45 pm. Spring Classes begin on January 28th. If you are registered for SONYC classes you should have received an email with DYCD Enrollment Forms. These forms are mandatory for all SONYC classes and physical copies must be turned in on the first day of classes. Digital copies are not accepted. If your child is taking multiple SONYC classes, you do not need to fill out multiple forms. Please bring one (1) copy of the enrollment forms on whichever day your child has their first SONYC class. Failure to turn in enrollment forms will result in forfeiting your child's spot in the SONYC program. Please contact our SONYC director, Osh Noam at firstname.lastname@example.org any additional questions.
- CLASSROOM SUPPLY FEE - Please pay your $25 school supply fee if you haven’t already done so. This large-scale purchasing effort guarantees that the teachers get exactly what they need to equip their classrooms, allows us to take advantage of bulk pricing, and ensures that teachers do not have to reach into their own pockets to purchase classroom supplies. (This fee is separate from the General Fund donation
