Dear Mount Vernon Families,
The Mount Vernon PlayMaker program encompasses all of the School’s afternoon programming for Preschool through grade 8, including Extended Play and PlayMaker classes. We are committed to providing the most expansive and robust afternoon programming possible, and we believe that learning, fun, and engagement do not stop at 3:00 p.m. each day. Whether your children are enrolled in Extended Play for the afternoon and/or in a PlayMaker class, they will enjoy an enriching and engaging afternoon experience.
Based on feedback from our families, we are moving PlayMaker to two semesters, with Fall classes beginning after Labor Day weekend. Please note that Preschool students who are not enrolled in an Extended Play plan will go to Extended Play prior to their scheduled PlayMaker class and be charged accordingly.
This year, we will offer classes during two different semesters - Fall and Spring.
Fall PlayMaker (12 weeks)
Registration: June 16 - July 31
Classes: September 5 - December 1
Makeup Week: December 4 - December 8
Spring PlayMaker (14 weeks)
Registration: November 27 - December 11
Classes: January 16 - April 26
Makeup Week: April 30 - May 4
The PlayMaker Class Catalog
provides a description of after school-classes, the semester availability, cost for the semester, minimum and maximum enrollment, and the teacher responsible for the class. Many of the PlayMaker classes are taught by our Preschool, Extended Play, Lower School and Middle School teachers. We are also excited to bring in outside enrichments such as Alliance Theatre, Chess Atlanta, Elementary Golf, and Jump Start Gym.
Registration and Waitlist
PlayMaker Class registration opens for fall semester, Friday, June 16, 2017 at 7:00 a.m. You will be able to sign up for the fall semester only, as we will be registering one semester at a time. Please note: in order to participate in the Spring Dance Recital(on April 14, 2018), dancers will be registered for both fall and spring semesters. While we have worked to create a diverse and robust list of class offerings, some classes might reach their maximum capacity quickly. If you register for a class that is already full, your child will be placed on a waitlist and you will be notified if space becomes available. Classes will be closed after the first week.
We will be able to offer full refunds for classes during the first week of each semester.
I cannot wait to welcome you to PlayMaker classes! Please let me know if you have any questions.
