Scholarships:  If you would like to request a partial scholarship for your child, you must fill out the Enrollment Form and include at least half of the tuition.

Important Note:  Monroe PTA is in no way affiliated with the After School Enrichment Program at Monroe which means that after school enrichment activities are not covered by PTA insurance.   The Program is coordinated as a courtesy to Monroe families by volunteer parents who are in no way responsible for the classes that you may sign your child up for.  All class descriptions are provided by the instructors and reproduced in good faith by the volunteer coordinators.  After school enrichment teachers are required by the school district to carry their own insurance and submit to a background check but neither the PTA nor the volunteer coordinators are responsible for ensuring that these individuals have met these requirements.  If you have any questions regarding a class, it should be directed to the instructor of the class.
