REOPENING UPDATE as of 3/16/21:
Parents & Guardians:
As most of you are aware, the Pine Bush School District is discussing altering their schedule. Beginning the week of April 5th, families will have to choose whether their children will go to school 4 days a week, or be fully remote. If this change goes into effect as planned, here is the Boys & Girls Club proposed schedule as of right now:
Pine Bush Side:
Morning Program for PBE/EJR from 630am until school starts, Tues-Fri
Afternoon program for PBE/EJR/Crispell from dismissal until 6pm, Tues-Fri
Morning Program for CES/PAK *at the Clubhouse* from 7am until school starts, Tues-Fri
Afternoon Program for CES/PAK/CVMS *at the Clubhouse* from dismissal until 6pm, Tues-Fri
Full Day Program for all PBCSD schools *at the Clubhouse* on Mondays from 7a-6p.
We will no longer offer full-day program Tues-Thurs at the Clubhouse UNLESS we have 10 or more children registered for it.
Our Crispell Middle School Program opens at the end of the school day, providing parents and guardians with safe, supervised programs for their children during the critical after school hours when it matters most. The program runs through 6pm each school day. Beginning in September of 2015, our Crispell Middle School Program is now bused to Pine Bush Elementary School daily. Parent pick up is at the Pine Bush Elementary School.
The After School Program focuses on providing every Club kid with a few essentials each day: every Club kid gets a healthy snack, homework help, or tutoring and FUN activities each and every day.
Most Club locations start with snack and Power Hour, an hour for the Club kids to focus on homework, studying for upcoming tests, and playing games or completing activities designed to reinforce the lessons they learn during the school day.
All Club locations also focus on the five core areas of Youth Development, according to Boys & Girls Clubs of America: Character & Leadership, Health & Wellness, The Arts, Sports & Recreation, and Education & Career Development. All Club locations also complete a monthly community service project and have a monthly guest speaker to keep things interesting!
Our Middle School Program volunteers help the younger students with homework, reading, and Power Hour!
Safety for our Club kids is the highest priority for our organization.
All staff members undergo annual criminal background checks and all Program Staff also undergo annual fingerprint clearance from New York State, are CPR and First Aid-certified, and receive a minimum of 15 hours of youth development training annually.
