Tips for navigating registration

  • Shorten the listing by selecting search criteria such as grade level or program type. Not all search features translate to mobile devices.
  • Be sure to use your child’s rising grade level, meaning the grade they will enter next fall.
  • In this system, Pre-K = JK; K = SK.
  • Emergency contact information can be copied over from one child to the next.
  • The email address you use to register will be used for communications throughout the summer, so use an address you check regularly.
  • You cannot hold programs in your cart, which will clear after 15 minutes of inactivity to free up the sessions for another registrant.
  • Please note that multi-session discounts on eligible programs will process automatically with initial registration, however, if you would like to add sessions at a later time, please contact summerprograms@fwparker.org as the mutli-session discount must be processed manually.
  • After you register, you will receive email confirmations for each child’s programs as well as a general receipt page from ACTIVE.com, our third party processor.
