Although the Virtual Learning Center grant has not been renewed for the 2021 school year, we hope to still help and serve members by offering a Day Program (8 am – 2 pm) for each of our Clubhouses. We will continue to help members with remote learning. As of right now, we are only open on select days at each of the Clubhouses (Eden: Monday-Thursday) (Lake Shore: Monday-Tuesday) Our open days are based on your responses to the survey. We need a minimum of 10 members signed up to be open per day, to cover the cost of the programming staff. If enough families need us to be open additional days at either clubhouse we are ready to make that opportunity happen. If we find there is not a need for a certain day on a consistent basis, changes to the schedule may be made. We will give at least 1 week’s notice and refund any fees paid. Please sign up as needed, we will be open as long as there is a need. Our after-school program (2-6 pm Monday-Friday) is open at both clubhouses. 

The cost for the day program is listed on each Clubhouse’s payment sheets (below). Payment for the month of March is due March 4th. If you need assistance please email Executive Director Jason Mazurkiewicz at jason@bgcedenlakeshore.org

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What if I have already paid and signed up for the 2020-2021 Programming ?
If you have previously signed up for a full day of programming (8am-6pm Monday at Lake Shore, Wednesday at Eden) we will issue you a credit to be transferred to any of our Club programming. If you have specific questions about the transfer, email Executive Director, Jason Mazurkiewicz, here.

Will the staff be checking my child’s homework/schoolwork?
We will check that your child(ren) has completed their homework. The best way to ensure clear communication of your child’s school tasks to the staff members is to fill out the Daily Task Form, here and the Virtual Learning Information Form, here. Please understand that although the staff will try their best to help members to the best of their ability, they are not certified teachers. We do hope to have teachers and teacher aids volunteer at the Club to ensure the best virtual learning experience as possible.

What is the Daily Task form?
We want to ensure that members are completing as much of the work that is expected of them, In order to do this, we’d like for guardians to fill out the Daily Task Form when members are dropped off for Virtual Learning Center hours. This is to help create a line of communication between staff and guardians about what was completed that day. Staff will hand out extra copies of the forms or it can be downloaded, here.

If I have already signed my child up for the 2020-2021 program do I need to fill out another application?

You do not need to fill out another online application, but you do need to email Julia with which days your child will be attending the Day Program and after school program along with the other supplemental materials (Completed payment form).
