ASCA – Looking Ahead

As we gear up to start our classes offered through the After School Creative Arts (ASCA) program in the next couple of weeks, we want to thank all of the parents who have enrolled their children into the program.  We appreciate your support.

The ASCA program is a phenomenal program, which provides our children with an opportunity to take a variety of courses throughout the year, including cooking classes, computer classes, needlepoint, and Legos – just to name a few.  ASCA is one of the PTOs major sources of funding, and it is purely a parent-run program.

In fact, our program has been extremely successful year after year, in large part, because of the hard work, dedication, and commitment of parents who have volunteered their time to run the program in a seamless manner.  We would like to thank all of the parents who have volunteered their time to help make the ASCA program a success, and in particular, we would like to thank and recognize Emily Gordon, our current ASCA Chair, for all of her hard work, dedication, and persistence in making sure that the ASCA program runs smoothly!

As we plan ahead, we are looking for THREE enthusiastic and innovative parents to help run our After School Creative Arts (ASCA)program next year and to take on one of the following roles:

ASCA Programming Coordinator: primarily responsible for securing instructors for classes and assisting with the completion of template contracts with teachers;

ASCA Management Coordinator: primarily responsible for securing space for the classes and issuing invoices to teachers, collecting payments for classes; and

ASCA Volunteer Coordinator: primarily responsible for coordinating parent volunteers while the ASCA program is in session, providing a mini-training session for the volunteers prior to the start of the session, and coordinating volunteer coverage during registration process.

All three Coordinators will work together on developing the course offerings and scheduling during the program year and on marketing the program to the Memorial Spaulding Community.

If you are interested in becoming one of the ASCA Coordinators please contact Monica and Doreen at or give us a call 617-651-0786.
