October 2017 News
Hello ASC Families,

Our 5th Annual Tee it Up For ASC Kids evet at Foxboro Golf Course on Saturday, 9/23/2017 was a large success. You all helped us raise over $11,400.00. Thank you to our 21 foursomes, 2 Major sponsors, 34 sponsors, and our special donors and families who assisted us by donating an item, bidding upon our items and gave special donations to offset our families in need with tuition assistance. All funds raised from our only fundraiser makes a difference for our families. You helped give the continuity of care at ASC while being served by quality, dedicated and knowledgeable Teachers and our management team. Thank you for your support as well as thank you for allowing us to serve your family.


READ Program
We are pleased to announce our new opportunity with Todd Trampe and Izzie (this is one of our grandparents and his dog) that will begin in November one day a month on Thursdays from 4:00-5:30 P.M. After School Clubs, Inc (ASC) will be participating in the Reading Education Assistance Dogs® (R.E.A.D ®) Program. This program is dedicated to improving the reading skills of children using certified therapy teams as literacy mentors. Handlers and their dogs will work with individual students during set ASC hours on a one-on-one basis for approximately 15-20 minutes once a month. There is no charge for this program. This is our way to connect with many of our children to increase self-esteem. If you do not want your child to participate, please do not complete the required liability form. This permission form is to let you know that there will be R.E.A.D. therapy dogs on campus. The dogs and their handlers have been insured for liability and have undergone reading education training in addition to their extensive training and registration to do animal-assisted therapy. Participation in this program will not begin until your written permission is received. You also have the right to refuse participation in this program. Should you have any other questions, concerns or comments, please call ASC at your earliest convenience and we will be happy to assist you at 835-9808.

On Friday, 10/27: We will have our annual ASC Halloween Party from 12:00-2:00. We will have crafts and a live DJ in our Big Gym this special day. We ask for you to send the costume with your child on Friday, 10/27. This way when the party is over, the costume can be returned to the bag and the costume will be able to be worn again for Halloween Trick or Treating night. Please no weapons.


Change in Temperature:
Just a reminder to dress your child/youth for our WI elements. Please have your child/youth bring along a jacket or sweat shirt to place in their bag. ASC states that the temperature is below 70 degrees a coat must be worn by children/youths UNLESS a parent signs a form stating at what degree their child needs to wear a coat. State Licensing requires us to go outside, weather permitting. To ensure that we are abiding by these rules, we need your assistance. We only have a few extra clothes in case of accidents, so we need your help in guiding your child to remember their belongings outside. Enjoying the fresh air and gross motor time are a must at ASC.

Absence: Please call us to inform us if your child/youth will not attend ASC or will not return from a scheduled activity
Just a reminder that if your child/youth is ill or will not attend ASC (by 2:00 on school days or by 9:00 A.M. on non-school days) please call our main office at 835-9808 to inform us. You may also email us at jamie@afterschoolclubs.org janelle@afterschoolclubs.org or myself at lisagits@afterschoolclubs.org. We are accountable for each child in our program and want to be sure that we are informed when a child will not attend at ASC. A $2.00 fee will be assessed to your bill if you forget to call.

If your child attends extra curricular activities and will NOT return from it, please call us at 835-9808 to inform us of this fact.

Sign Out Your Child
Please be sure to sign out your child every day when leaving at ASC. This allows us to be sure we have accounted for each child. It is a good measure to be sure to say, ”Good Bye” to your child’s teacher, so that he or she knows that you are departing for the day with your child.


Help Support ASC with Bill’s Receipts
Please help us raise funds for our June Venden Scholarship fund. It is very easy… When you shop at Bill’s Food Store bring in your receipt and drop it into our fish bowl marked Bill’s Receipts. Thank you for your helping us raise funds for our families we serve at ASC.


October Activities

Please be sure to have your child bring their library card for the Oregon Library for library days as well as socks on bowling days and a swimsuit and towel on swimming days to be able to participate! If your child forgets his/her suit and towel, he or she may rent one for a $3.00 fee. This fee will be assessed on your account.

** The Oregon Pool closes early two Tuesdays this month due to OHS swim meets, so some group will not be going swimming this month.
