Student Programs

Before and After School Programs


The PTA Before & After School Programs team sponsors an exciting variety of enrichment programs for our students.  These programs are a great way to participate in extracurricular activities with convenient timing immediately before or after school.  The program offers a mix of sports, arts, STEAM, and more!

Enrichment Programs


Enrichment programs such as WordMasters, Keyboarding, Science Fair, Math Olympiad and PTA Reflections





GREAT Art (Greater Reston Elementary School ArT) is a PTA sponsored art enrichment program at Aldrin Elementary exploring various art themes and artists ranging from ancient and classical art to modern and contemporary art.  Each month parent volunteers (or "docents") come into the classroom to share a short presentation about an artist/art theme and lead the class in a project inspired by the artist studied.  All students from K-6th grade participate.


The presentation and visuals for the class are provided by GREAT Art parent coordinators, along with instructions and materials for the project.  The program allows parents to be creative and have fun at school with their children and classmates.  No art or teaching experience is necessary in order to volunteer!


Students love GREAT Art days!  They enjoy learning about the artists, have fun being creative and working on the projects. 


Girls on the Run


GOTR is a program that uses the power of running to help prepare girls in 3rd-6th grade for a lifetime of self-respect and healthy living.  Each session the coaches will guide and mentor the girls through fun running activities, exercises, and games (curriculum and materials to be provided by the GOTR organization) that culminate in a 5K event the girls can walk or run together.

The Aldrin Backpack Program serves approximately 50 children from Aldrin with a food bag each weekend.  The bags are distributed EVERY Friday.  Aldrin is teamed up with Helping Hungry Kids in Reston, who serves other Reston schools as well.
