Club Registration Information

Reminder for Trimester 3: If you register your child in the lottery for one or more clubs, you are committing to paying for all clubs in which your child is selected through the lottery process. If you do not enroll and pay for a club in which your child earned a spot in through the lottery, you will lose the ability to enroll them in all other clubs for the current trimester and the next trimester.

  6. For this trimester, payment is due by 3:00 pm by Friday, March 17 at 3:00 pm for all clubs in which families were able to successfully register. Payment is due to the main office in the form of check or money order made out to "Hoboken Charter School." If your payment is not received by this deadline, your child will not be able to participate in the club.

  7. We know that this is a substantial amount of money to pay upfront, especially if your child participates daily, so if you would like, you can submit two checks divided equally with registration. We will hold the second check for thirty days before depositing it. A $35 bounced check fees will be charged for all checks returned by a financial institution. Repayment shall be required to be made by money order or cashier’s check.
