The RHS Enrichment Program
Redwood Heights offers a variety of after-school classes designed to help students with their studies and further explore their creativity. We work with experienced vendors to provide a wide range of classes – including sports, arts and crafts, performing arts, tutoring, language, science, and, math.
Fall 2020 Quarter (Distance Learning/Online offerings)
As of now, all enrichment courses held for fall are going to be held online. The first day of Fall Enrichment starts on Monday, August 17th.. The last day is Friday, October 16th. Registration for this quarter opens on August 1st.
A new quarter will start on Monday, October 19. At that time, we will re-assess whether we will continue with distance learning, or if we will be able to hold enrichment classes on-site based upon the recommendations from OUSD.
RHS is working with a new platform called 6 Crickets. Here, you will be able to view enrichment class descriptions, input your child’s information, view calendars and pay fees, all in one place.

At Redwood Heights, we offer scholarships for our enrichment classes awarded on a needs-based honor system. These are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis. If you are interested in applying for a scholarship, please click here to fill out the Google form. All scholarship requests must be completed and turned in by August 17, 2020 to be considered for the fall session.
Enrichment classes are not offered during OUSD holidays and staff development days. Please check the current calendar for available classes and what days they are held on the 6 Crickets website.
Even though we are distance learning for the fall quarter, we are still following school hours. On all days except Wednesdays, after school programs will begin at 3pm. On Wednesdays, programs will begin at 1:30pm.
Enrichment providers will provide parents and students with a Zoom link to access classes online. This is set up through the providers and not through RHS.
For specific questions regarding enrichment program classes, please contact the program providers directly. For all other questions, please contact our Enrichment Coordinators, Alexa Evans and Holly Iwanaga. You can reach them here: Alexa.firstname.lastname@example.org and Hollynayoko@gmail.com.
*The RHS administration/office does not coordinate any enrichment programs. Please DO NOT contact them with any questions about after-school classes.
