All scholars (1st through 5th) have 30 minutes in which to work on homework and reading assignments. We provide homework assistance at this time providing that the scholars let us know they are in need of help (raise a hand, ask questions, etc.). However, we do not offer one on one assistance or tutoring and we do not correct the work that child has completed. We will encourage them to do their homework and help them stay on task. If scholars do not complete their work in the allotted time, they will need to work on it at home. If your child informs us that he/she does not have homework, we will provide them with a No Homework Contract that they will sign to be shared with parents and teachers so that they are aware each day that this takes place. Please look over your scholar's homework that has been completed at YMCA Also, look at the assignment book, homework folder, Take-Home folder, and anything that may be sent by the classroom teacher on a daily basis. Students will not be allowed to return to their classrooms once the school bell has released them for the day, so please help us by reminding them that they need to be responsible for bringing all of their belongings with them at the end of the day. For more information on your scholar's work assignments, visit the classroom teacher's website.
Health and Wellness - YMCA will encourage all children to partake in activities that they may share with their families that will promote Health and Wellness in all of our lives. We will work to provide at least 20 minutes of Red-Faced Active activities in the gym or outside each day for the children to be involved in. We will promote good eating habits with fruits and vegetables as well as other healthy snacks each day. We invite suggestions as to activities that will help to promote keeping our bodies healthy and well.
Health/Medical Conditions - If your child has a known medical condition and/or takes medication, please inform the YMCA staff and enter the items on the child's registration form. We must have current phone numbers and other contact information for Parents and Emergency Contacts on your child's Registration Form. If your child is ill, please keep them home. If a child is sent home from YMCA with a fever of 100.2 or above, they must be fever free without medication for 24 hours before returning to school and YMCA. YMCA staff will inform the school nurse if a child is sent home during the YMCA program and the reason why.
