At the Y kids are cultivating the values, skills and relationships that lead to positive behaviors, better health and educational achievement.
SPARKS-After School Program
When School is out the Y is in. Ignite a SPARK in your child by enrolling in the Y’s After School SPARK program, specifically for children in Kindergarten through Fifth grade. Spark is designed to promote Social responsibility, Physical health, Academic support, Respect And Kindness. A variety of programs will be offered including: swimming, rock climbing, field trips, guest presenters, music and movement and a lot more. A snack will be provided. Either walk from Sharpstein or get a ride from your school. Come join in the fun!
At the Y, we know what it means to be a busy, working parent. That is why we are pleased to announce that the school district has been gracious enough to allow the children to be bussed from their school to Sharpstein. Our caring staff will be at Sharpstein waiting for them and safely walk them to the Y for a fun filled afternoon. All children riding the school bus to Sharpstein will be charged the walking rate.
