PIVOTING TO VIRTUAL PROGRAMMING FOR FALL 2020
Due to risks of COVID-19, we have made the incredibly difficult decision to cancel all in-person after school programming for the 2020 Fall semester. This was not a decision we made lightly, but the health and safety of the families we serve and our staff are—and always will be—our highest priority.
Yet, the creativity, confidence, compassion, and critical thinking skills we foster in youth are more essential now than ever, which is why we’re excited to launch CREATIVE ACTION TOGETHER—a virtual arts enrichment program for ages 5-11 that engages, educates, and connects youth through high-quality programming.
Our high-quality, onsite, licensed after school program engages students in visual art, filmmaking, music, puppetry, creative writing, acting, and more to deepen connections to lessons learned in the classroom, all while expanding the development of social and emotional skills. Students participate in hands-on activities led by professional teaching artists to create projects that improve the community and the world around them.
- After school runs every day of the AISD calendar from the end of the school day until 6 p.m.
- The cost for the 2020-21 school year is $260/month/child but we do offer financial aid for those that qualify

Enrollment for the 2020-21 school year
With the 2020-21 school year bringing big transitions for Brentwood Elementary. Both Extend-a-Care and Creative Action will be on-site at Webb Middle School, providing after school care for Brentwood students. However, due to the campus transition, our enrollment capacity has been decreased due to available space and we will be enrolling a maximum of 80 students. The Spanish Immersion program will not be continuing.
In order to provide families with an equitable opportunity in enrolling for Creative Action, we are holding a lottery to determine enrollment for the 2020-21 school year.
The lottery is now closed. Selected families will be given instructions on registering their child/children by mid-May.
