Dear Chenery Middle School Families and Students,
Thank you for your interest in Chenery PTO Clubs.
The next session of Chenery PTO Clubs will begin in early October. Registration will begin at the end of September. We hope to have preview information available about a week before that. Once it becomes available, it will be found on at https://chenery.schooltwist.org/.
If you have questions specific to a club, please contact the instructor.
If you are looking for the afterschool clubs run directly by the school, you can find more information on the Chenery website.
Want to join our team? We’re looking for help with club management tasks. We’d love to have your help!
POLICIES AND PROCEDURES (acceptance required for registration)
Registration for clubs is done online on a first-come, first-serve basis. Payment via Mastercard or VISA is required at the time of registration, unless financial assistance is being requested (see below). Once a club is full, a student may register for the waitlist which will be used in the event of cancellations by earlier registrants. Payment is not required to be put on the waitlist.
Cancellations of Sessions
In the unfortunate case of cancellation of a club session, parents will be notified by e-mail and an announcement will be made at the start of the school day for students. In the event that school is closed or lets out early due to inclement weather, clubs for that day will be cancelled. Every effort will be made to schedule a make-up session at the convenience of the instructor.
Financial Assistance (FA)
Financial Assistance (FA) is available to families who are on record with CMS as having demonstrated financial need. Eligible students can receive FA for one club per session. If you would like your child to be considered for FA, please indicate this on the online registration form. All FA requests will be forwarded to the Chenery Administration who determines eligibility. If the administration is not yet aware of your financial need, you should be prepared and willing to present documentation to demonstrate eligibility. Decisions will be made within five days after the registration period closes. If your request for FA is denied, you will be given the opportunity to pay for the club or cancel your registration.
No refunds will be given after the registration period has closed, unless a class is cancelled.
Student Arrival & Dismissal
Students are responsible for getting to the clubs on their own. They should wait outside the designated classrooms until the start time. If your student attends BASEC@Chenery (Chenex), they should check in there first, BEFORE going to the club. Students are dismissed on their own at the end of the club. Please note that it is difficult to obtain entrance to the school after 3:30PM, so plan your pick-ups accordingly.
Students must participate in the clubs they attend and must behave in a manner that does not disrupt learning by other students. Students who do not exhibit appropriate behavior may be disenrolled from a club without refund and will not be allowed to participate in future clubs.
The Chenery PTO clubs are designed to provided enrichment and community-building opportunities for Chenery Middle School students. In some cases, we can also support Belmont students who are homeschooled or have out of district placements. Parents should contact the PTO Clubs committee to determine if their student can be successful in PTO clubs.
