Ison Springs Elementary School

 Welcome to the Ison Springs Elementary  sign up page for AFTH registration!  We are excited to provide your student with the unique experience of contemporary group harp classes!   Harps are included in the weekly sessions.  The fee for 2019-2020 will be 135.00 per semester.

We also offer 2 AFTH Scholarships to students in need. To apply, students must complete an essay on the importance of the arts, and why they should be selected for the program.  Parents must also submit documentation of financial need.  Scholarships help to reduce the rate of the 12 week program.

(*scholarships limited and on first come basis).

AFTH Enrichment classes will start September, 2019

Classes are scheduled to be as follows:
Thursdays: 2:45pm to 3:45pm

There is  a max class size of 24 students for our sessions.  Starting with students in 3rd grade.  Only the first 24 signed up will be able to attend.  If a minimum of 12 students are not registered before cut off date, the session will be cancelled and all monies will be refunded.  AFTH Signup cutoff date is September 1st..   Students have the option of staying in the session the second semester which will begin back on Jan. 10th, 2020!
