>>>NEW<<< PICK-UP PROCEDURE: To avoid disrupting the YWCA After-care program, children will no longer be picked up at the Main Entrance. Instead children will be picked up at the door in between the gym and the Main Entrance (to the left of the main entrance, as you face the front of the school). The club Lead Volunteer will be there to ensure a smooth dismissal process.
Club start/end times: 3:00-4:15pm
REGISTRATION PROCESS: Please complete Section 2 of this form, noting in particular:• We must have reliable information regarding emergency contacts, and who will pick up the child after the club.• If you register for more than one club, please rank the clubs in order of preference.• For oversubscribed clubs, a lottery is used to randomly select from among the registrants. Children who are not selected in the lottery are placed in a waitlist.• If you have more than one child you may (optionally) link their club registrations. In such cases the linked children will be treated as a single applicant in the lottery; they will be enrolled or waitlisted as a group.
NOTIFICATION: We intend to send email on Monday, March 27 to convey the results of the registration process, and request payment.

VOLUNTEERS:For each club we will be seeking a Lead Volunteer (parent, guardian, sitter, grandparent, friend) who can commit to attending all sessions, taking attendance, escorting children to and from the bathroom, and helping with set-up, clean-up and pick-up. Club fees will be waived for children of the Lead Volunteer (up to two such waivers per family). Additional volunteers are always welcome, for any number of sessions.
