Workshops

BASEC Workshops are enrichment classes that promote deep exploration into topics of interest for BASEC students. When space is available, BASEC Workshops are opened to the greater Fowler community. Children who don’t usually attend after school are encouraged to take BASEC Workshops.

BASEC @ Fowler Fall Workshop Session — Registration Now Open!

Please review this catalog of classes to learn more about the enriching workshops being offered at BASEC @ Fowler.

Workshops begin the week of 9/26 and continue for 10 – 11 weeks. Please see the dates below for Workshops of interest.

All workshops will run from 2:30 PM – 3:30 PM at Fowler Middle School. Students should be picked up or have sign-out authorization in place to depart BASEC @ Fowler each day by 4:30 PM, if they are not signed up for after school that day. After School students transition to and from Workshops directly from BASEC.

Per our licensing regulations, all students participating in BASEC Workshops must register (and complete our enrollment information form) for BASEC. If your child currently attends before or after school, you don’t need to register at BASEC–you are already fully enrolled! Just register for the Workshops you would like below. If your child is not currently registered for BASEC for the 2022 – 2023 school year, you may register for the Workshops below and then we will email you our enrollment form that will need to be completed and returned before Wednesday, 9/21.

We are excited to announce that tuition for all Workshops will be free to students participating in BASEC before and after school programs.

If you have any question concerning our workshops and curriculum, please email:
