    After School Enrichment Programs

    Leschi currently partners with Garfield Community Center to run many after school enrichment programs at our school.

    Here’s a step-by-step of where to go to register for after school enrichment classes:

    1. Click the “Register for Programs” icon (the green button with the bike icon on it)
    2. In the menu on the left, click Childcare & Out-of-School Time
    3. In the location drop down menu in the top right, select Leschi Elementary
    4. Click the blue “Show Courses” button in the middle of the screen
    5. Click add next to the class you are interested in (it shows next to each class what the availability is)
    To see current offerings and register online, go to Seattle Parks Registration Page , and make sure you are in the 'Programs' tab. Expand the Advanced Search dialogue in the left-hand menu, then type 'Leschi' in the Keyword(s) box. Even if you register online, you still need to bring your registration form and E-13 form in person to Garfield Community Center. Writable versions of those forms are available in the Fall Catalog posted in the menu on the left.

    In addition, there are several activities run directly by Leschi Elementary (i.e. Leschi Chess Scholars). For these, consult the link on the left menu for the Leschi program.

    Seattle Music Partners, 4th-5th grade

    Seattle Music Partners provides the opportunity for 4th and 5th grade students to participate after school in one-on-one music lessons on Monday afternoons and group music playing and learning on Wednesday afternoons (participating students are expected to attend both Monday and Wednesday sessions each week throughout the school year). Each student will be placed with a high school, college, or community musician for individual lessons on their instrument. Through these individual lessons, group activities and ensemble playing, 4th and 5th graders will learn to read music, play an instrument, and make music as part of an orchestra or band.

    Students perform in several recitals each year, showcasing their new skills and gaining valuable performance experience. Seattle Music Partners (SMP) works closely to support the instrumental music learning that is happening during in-school music lessons and students are strongly encouraged to sign up to participate in instrumental music during school as well.

    SMP provides instruments to students as needed. In addition, SMP works with area arts organizations to bring guest artists to Leschi for assemblies and also helps to arrange for field trips to music performances.
