Happy 2015, Kids Club Families!

We are so excited for this year, and here is the latest news from Kids Club:

Kids Club Fee Structure Change?  We need your INPUT!

Over the last several years, we have heard concerns about the additional cost for the summer months of our program.  In response to these concerns, we would like to explore the idea of annualizing the fees, so that each monthly fee is the same.  We would do this by adding up one year's worth of fees and dividing by 12.  For example:

School Year 2015-2016

Currently (for 1st-5th grade students)

$425/month for September-May

$650/month for June, July, and August


Annualized

$481.25/month for all 12 months (likely rounded up)

                                                                                                                               

Currently (for Kindergarten students)

$550/month for September-May

$650/month for June, July, and August

 

Annualized

$575/month for all 12 months

                                                                                               

What do you think of this idea?  Please take this quick two-question survey by Friday, February 13th:  see Site Supervisor for survey link

Next steps:  Once we receive your feedback, we will consider the next steps.  No changes would take place until July 1, 2015.


Parent Advisory Committee (PAC)

Calling all families - we need YOU!  We are looking for two to three parents from each site to create one Kids Club Parent Advisory Committee.

What is a Parent Advisory Committee?  The PAC provides a mechanism to facilitate parent involvement in the successful operation of the Kids Club programs.   The purpose of the PAC is to support Kids Club staff in meeting the goals and objectives of our program's philosophy.  We would meet 2-3 times per year on Wednesdays from 7:00-8:30pm (child care will be provided).  We would really appreciate a parent's perspective on new ideas we have!

If you are interested in participating, please email our Program Director, Traci Peterson at tpeterson@pleasantonusd.net.

 

Survey Time Again at Kids Club!

It is that time of year again when we will be surveying both our students and our staff about the Kids Club program.  For our goal of continuous improvement, we like to hear from those that are directly involved in the day-to-day activities in our program

This year's survey will again include questions like:

·  Do you have friends at Kids Club?

·  Do the staff have time to help you if you have a problem?

·  Are there enough things here to use so that everyone gets a turn?

·  What do you like best about Kids Club?

·  What do you wish you could change about Kids Club?

The survey was adapted from a tool created by the National AfterSchool Association from their Assessing School Age Quality program.  

That's the news for now.  Wishing you all a wonderful year full of health, hope, and happiness!

Traci Peterson -- on behalf of the AWESOME Kids Club Staff
