Imagine a program that thrives with creativity.

Imagine a place where everyone can play in harmony.

Welcome to the Snow Pond Enrichment!

A new and innovative after school program for grades 1-8, Monday -Friday 3:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.

Through music, we can give children positive experiences that lift their futures along with their voices. Based on the transformational El Sistema model, the Snow Pond Enrichment Program is a vivacious program that combines academic support, health and recreation, and music education for every student every day.


Snow Pond Enrichment has teamed with area RSU18 and Augusta Public Schools to provide transportation for students participating in the Enrichment program from their home school to the Snow Pond Center for the Arts campus, located in Sidney.

We highly encourage families pick up their student at the end of each day to ensure families and teachers have an opportunity to connect. We realize with parent’s schedules that this is not always possible. We are currently working on a transportation option that would bus students to a centralized location at the end of each day as well.


The After School Enrichment Program runs from
September 5, 2017 – May 18, 2018
3:00 pm to 5:30 pm
Monday through Friday
excluding school holidays and vacation days.


Snow Pond Enrichment’s mission and philosophy is to provide excellent music education and academic support to a diverse student body. The maximum cost of the program is $70.00 per week. For financial assistance information, please contact Director Jen Birch at, or by phone at 844-476-6976 ext. 401.


Students will receive a healthy snack every day to ensure that they have the fuel needed to be successful in their work, and in their physical activities. Snow Pond will also host several family dinners throughout the year, at no cost. These dinners are designed to encourage engagement between the teachers and parents/guardians.


Each student that needs an instrument will be provided one from the Snow Pond Music Lending Library at no additional cost to families.


Attendance and commitment are important factors to your child’s success in the Snow Pond Enrichment program. This one activity will help improve your child’s academic performance, and will allow your student to form lasting friendships, while becoming more disciplined and confident. The Enrichment program provides the resources needed for each child to excel in all areas, and that takes commitment from students, teachers and families.
