Our Goal Our goal is to create a safe, healthy, happy and stimulating environment where children will have the opportunity to work on their homework, as well as participate in structured group activities. We have many Sycamore Creek Elementary School staff members interested in participating in this program. The staff to student ratio will be approximately 1:25. You will be receiving an interest form in Friday folders soon. We look forward to receiving your response so we can continue with the planning process.
A Sample Schedule 7:00-8:00 Social/Group Activities 3:15 Meet in designated area 3:15-3:45 Snack Social (Healthy snacks will be available) 3:45-4:30 Homework Help/ Read Aloud 4:30-6:00 Group Activities (Supervised activities such as games, stories, music, arts and crafts, and outside play will be offered. )
Our Discipline Plan It is important that children respect themselves, other people, and property. We will CHOMP in the before and after school program. Occasionally, children will need to be removed from a situation when they cannot act appropriately. If problems with a child seem to arise frequently, the parent will be notified and a conference scheduled to discuss these concerns. Persistent and/or severe misbehavior may result in the child being withdrawn from the program.
Program Hours Your program will be available on the days your child is tracked in. The Before School Program will run from 7:00- 8:00 The After School Program will run from 3:15- 6:00. On Early Release Days children will be admitted to the program following the scheduled school dismissal.
Program Fees Fees are broken down into 9 monthly payments. Each payment period covers 20 days of school. Cash cannot be accepted. The fee for the before school program is approximately $55 per period or a total of $510 for the year. The fee for the after school program is approximately $ per period or a total of $ (These amounts are set by WCPSS and may change for the school year.)
Program Fees Monthly fees are due on the dates designated on the WCPSS payment schedule for each school calendar. Fees are not prorated for any reason including a child’s illness, family vacation, or change in the work schedule, etc. You do not pay for teacher workdays, track out days, or holidays when children are not in school.
