posted Mar 23, 2018, 1:14 PM by Traci Peterson

Happy Spring, Families!  Here is our latest program update:

Kids Club Opening at Fairlands, Lydiksen, and Mohr!

In a joint decision made by PUSD and the YMCA of the East Bay, the three Y-Kids sites at Fairlands, Lydiksen and Mohr will be transitioned over to Kids Club sites within the next couple of months!


What does this mean for your child(ren) and family?  Well, the existing Kids Club programs will continue on as they have been, and the site staff are looking forward to another great summer!  There may be some shifting of staff as the new sites provide tremendous promotion opportunities for those that are interested.  Each site will keep you informed as we go through this process together to make it as smooth as a transition as possible for everyone!


Kids Club Holiday Schedule 2018-19

The Holiday Schedule for next year is now complete!  It is attached to this email, it is on our website, and there will be paper copies for you available at the site starting on Monday afternoon.

Survey Results - THANK YOU for your feedback!

We have completed the Student, Staff, and Family surveys for this year!  Here are some of the highlights:

Parent Advisory Committee (PAC)

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.  The PAC will be holding a meeting in April.  All are welcome to attend, and we do hope to have 1-2 representatives from each site.

 

We will be meeting on a Wednesday evening from 7:00-8:30pm (child care will be provided).  If you are interested in participating, please email our Program Director, Traci Peterson at tpeterson@pleasantonusd.net.

That is all the news for now, and be on the lookout for Summer Information coming soon!

Traci and the Site Supervisors (on behalf of the OUTSTANDING Kids Club staff!)
