    Before and After School Activities Program (BASAP)

    The Before and After School Activities Program (BASAP) provides enriching activities in art, music, language, theater, sports and craft to enhance our children’s educational experience, strengthen their love of learning, add to the sense of belonging across grade levels, and encourage students to succeed while having fun pursuing new interests.

    Spring Sessions begin the week of April 23 and run 8 weeks. One make up day on Monday the 18th to make up for Memorial Day.

    Overview of Spring Session Listings for your planning

    If you registered last winter and want to go directly to the registration page, click here.

    If you go to the 6crickets main page, you won’t automatically the Adams listings & they won’t be searchable, to avoid the general public from signing up for Adams classes. To get to Adams listings from the main page:

    Go to

    click on  "For Parents" (top of page)

    click on "Find Enrichment at my School," and

    click on "Adams Elementary."


    Registration Process for First Time at

    If you didn’t register for a winter session, this is news: Adams BASAP Program has a new online registration tool called 6Crickets to streamline your experience.


    Once you create your account, the info is saved for future registrations. We highly recommended that you create an account and enter your child’s info before registration opens on March 21 at 6 a.m.  Follow the steps below:

    · Sign Up--top right of the screen, or login if you already have an account

    · Once you are logged in, under My Account, click on Edit Students. Complete all required information for every child you are registering. It will show up as "Complete" when you are finished.


    Please enter your child's AFTERNOON teacher/classroom. 

    Some fields are required by 6Crickets and not by Adams (for example: "Please set a password to use for picking up your child" and "Insurance Information"). Completing them might come in handy if you use 6Crickets later to sign up for summer camps, which is their main service. You cannot leave those spaces blank, but you can enter anything. 

    · Under My Account, click on Edit Profile.  Here you can enter your credit card information and opt out of email subscriptions if you wish (otherwise you will start receiving 6Crickets emails and newsletters).

    · You are ready to register for classes when they open on March 21! Use the Parent's Guide if you need help. See class listings at the bottom of this page to help with planning. Contact if you need help using the interface.


    BASAP Scholarship Fund Update


    Our enrichment providers generously contribute a spot for each of their classes. However, the need for scholarships exceeds that amount. Last session we added the opportunity to donate money at registration checkout to a BASAP Scholarship Fund, to ensure every student has the opportunity for enrichment. Thank you for your help! Any amount makes a difference. Thanks to you, last session we raised $303 for BASAP student scholarships!


    To request a scholarship: Create a 6Crickets account and contact our counselor Mr. Murphy at

    Class Changes for Spring

    *New! Due to a very large wait list, we have added a second day for Musical Theater. It will run on both Mondays and Fridays, with two different shows on the two days. Since Circus Sports K-2 is on Mondays, the Monday Musical Theater show will be chosen to appeal to older kids, but both days are open to the full grade range of 1-5 as before, to create optimal availability for families.

    *Rainy Day Dinner Club will move back to Wednesdays.

    *Hip Pop will move to Thursdays.

    General Information about BASAP:

    There are three - eight week sessions offered per year: Fall, Winter and Spring. Classes are offered Monday through Friday, including early release days. Classes are not offered on ‘no school days,’ but are made up during subsequent weeks. After school classes range from one hour to two hours and meet once a week. Before school classes typically meet twice a week,

    Scholarships are available for all classes.  Please contact the school counselor at to request a scholarship. Families using scholarships still need to create a free account at 6Crickets.

    This PTA enrichment program could not be possible without an awesome team of parent volunteers. Volunteers are needed to check students in/out and observe classes. Volunteers receive up to $100 in tuition reimbursement each session. Please email if you are available to volunteer for these after school hours or would like to assist in the logistics.

    Classes fill quickly, so sign up early!  Sorry, no late registrations will be accepted.
