This Fall, In-Person DPIE After School Courses Are Back!

With the return of students to the classroom, DPIE is happy to announce that we will once again offer a wide-variety of in-person, high-interest after school enrichment courses to students at all 8 elementary schools in Dublin. With over 80 in-person courses, there will be something for just about everyone!

DPIE has once again partnered with local vendors like Code to the Future, Pacific Chess Academy, Gurus Education, Bricks 4 Kidz, Bollynaach Dance Company, Café Art, AI Club Pyxeda and CompuChild to offer the courses parents are asking for.

DPIE Provides Online Course Options

For those of you who are not quite ready for in-person classes at this time, DPIE will also offer online courses for students in grades 1 – 8.  Courses include coding, introduction to Artificial Intelligence, yoga, public speaking, art, journaling, chess and much more.

DUSD Teachers "Teach Their Passion"

This fall, teachers from Amador, Dougherty, Dublin, Frederiksen, and Kolb elementary schools will once again offer classes. Dublin teachers are recruited to “teach their passions” in our after-school program, which are offered for one hour per week for 10 weeks. 

Mr. John Price, Dougherty Elementary teacher, and his young Botanists learn about the life cycle of plants by working hands-on in the Dougherty garden. Mr. Price's Afterschool course "Life Science of the Garden" provides a hands-on lesson to curious students who learn more about the world they live in

Join the Fun!

Celebrate the return to school by enrolling your child in one of the many courses listed at your student’s school or online this fall.  Just like in regular classes, all students and instructors will be required to wear a mask during the class and to use hand sanitizer upon entering and exiting the class.  We are limiting the size of the classed from a minimum of 5, to a maximum of 20 students, in order to help with social distancing. All vendors will be vaccinated.
