@North Bethesda Middle School
Winter 2023

During registration, go to each listing for detailed information on dates and time.

Open Enrollment / Early Bird Registration

EAI offers open enrollment, with a specific registration start date. Club fees for the first four days of each registration period will include Early Bird pricing!   After the four-day Early Bird window, online registration will be available for an additional $10 per club.  However, we urge all parents to take advantage of early bird enrollment so minimum enrollment numbers can be met and accurate rosters can be distributed to instructors prior to club start dates.

Club Cancellations and Make-Up Sessions

If school is cancelled or meets for only a half day because of weather, no clubs will be held.  Every effort will be made to make-up the session based upon available dates and instructors.  The club instructor (not the school’s main office or Enrichment Academies) will be responsible for notifying you of any cancellations.

How Many Clubs Can My Child Sign up For?

Each child may sign up for as many clubs as he or she would like. Students are registered in clubs on a first come, first served basis.  If your child’s first choice isn’t available this session, EAI will try to offer this same club in a future session.


In many situations, class enrollment determines our ability to offer a class and pay our instructors. Because of this, there will be no refunds issued after confirmation emails have been sent.  

Financial Aid/Scholarship Fund

Families receiving lunch assistance during the school year may take one class per session without charge pending space availability in the club and approval from the NBMS Counselor's office.   All inquiries are confidential.  Please note that registering for a club with a scholarship request does not guarantee a spot in the club.  The only way to guarantee a spot in a club is to confirm with payment.

How Will My Child Get Home From the Club?

Children need to be picked up by a parent/caregiver, take the activity bus or walk/bike.  All clubs will be dismissed through the front entrance of the school at 4:15pm 

You are responsible for your child after 4:15 pm.  No child may wait unattended on the school premises; the office staff cannot supervise your child. 

Behavior Policy

Students are expected to:

¨   Follow cooperatively and politely all directions given by the instructor,

¨   Treat others with respect,

¨   Keep hands, feet, and objects to himself/herself,

¨   Be where he/she belongs at all times, and

¨   Take responsibility for his/her behavior. 

Student must be present during the school day to participate in after school club.

If a child is not willing or able to follow these expectations, the following consequences will result:

¨   1st time – Warning to student and parent;

¨   2nd time – Child will be asked to leave club. (There will be no refunds.)

**EAI retains the right to make the ultimate decision regarding a student's dismissal from a club due to a behavior issue.
