Firstly, we would like to extend a huge Welcome/Welcome Back to all our new and returning families this school year! We look forward to an exciting 2019/2020 School Year!
Now that the school year is underway, we thought we would give a few updates and reminders for our After-School Program:
Have you heard about our WestJet Raffle Fundraiser?? We are raffling off WestJet Airfare tickets! Buy a raffle ticket from the Club and you could win 2 roundtrip airfare tickets to anywhere that WestJet flies! Tickets are $10 each and all proceeds will go back directly into the After-School Program. Draw date is October 17th, 2019. *Purchase your tickets early as there are only 800 tickets available this year!
Kid Food Nation
We are excited to announce that Kid Food Nation is back!! Kid Food Nation is an 8-week cooking program for children ages 7-12. This program will help to teach food skills and enhance food literacy in a fun and engaging way. Kid Food Nation will run on Monday’s beginning Monday, September 25th from 3:45-6:00pm. This program is limited to 10 participants so please register early.
*As this is a funded program through Boys & Girls Clubs of Canada with a set curriculum and evaluations, all participants are required to attend all 8 weekly sessions.
Every Monday – Thursday, we offer a Homework Help Program within the After-School hours. This program offers a quiet space for members to be able to complete their homework or seek assistance when needed. Homework Help is available to all members and can be accessed whenever needed.
Labelling Personal Items
We ask that all personal belongings (jackets, backpacks etc.) are labelled. We have many of the same items and want to ensure things go home with the proper owners. We do have a lost and found table so please make sure you check it often to see if any of your child’s belongings are there.
We also ask that indoor shoes are brought to the program. We ask that shoes be worn always and with the changing weather indoor shoes are ideal. We have a shelf that indoor shoes can be stored on throughout the week.
• Please call the Club at 705-526-6159 if your child will not be attending the After-School Program.
• Please remind children to go straight to the bus when the bell rings at the end of the school day. The bus is on a tight schedule and we want to ensure all schools are picked up on time.
• We are not responsible for lost or stolen belongings. Please ensure belongings are labelled and special items (toys, electronics) stay at home.
