St. Mary School Kids C.A.R.E.
St. Mary School is pleased to announce the opening of our new before and after school student care program, St. Mary School Kids C.A.R.E.
(Creative, Academic, and Recreational Engagement).
Kids C.A.R.E. will be available to St. Mary School students registered for grades K-8, and will be in operation from 6:00am-7:30am, and from 2:40pm-6:30pm when school is in session. Detailed information about the availability of Kids C.A.R.E. during late start, early dismissal, and calamity days will be announced later this summer. Weekly rates are comparable to similar programs within our area, and discounts will be available to families with two or more children attending each week. Two rates will be used; “drop in” for those who attend the program 1-3 days per week, and “full time” for those who attend the program 4-5 days per week.
Drop in rate (1-3 days per week) = $15.00/week/child
Full time rate (4-5 scheduled days per week) = $ 25.00/week/child
Drop in rate (1-3 days per week) = $35.00/week/child
Full time rate (4-5 scheduled days per week) = $45.00/week/child
We are thrilled to welcome Mrs. Susan Tooill as the Program Coordinator and Team Leader for the 2012/2013 school year. Mrs. Tooill has been teaching at Blessed Sacrament in Newark for the past thirteen years. She has experience working for Action for Children Head Start in Columbus, served as a teacher in a private preschool, and holds a Kindergarten-Elementary (K-8) professional license with a Pre-Kindergarten Endorsement from the State of Ohio. Mrs. Tooill is a Lancaster resident and St. Mark parishioner.
Kids C.A.R.E. will begin on the first day of school, August 22, 2012.
Families that would like to use Kids C.A.R.E. at any time during the
2012/2013 school year must pre-register for the program by completing a registration packet. Pre-registration is necessary in order to collect required information for students participating in the program.
Registration will open August 1. A $25.00 supply fee per child must be paid in full to the Kids C.A.R.E. Coordinator before August 22, 2012.
Supply fee discounts will be applied for families with multiple children registered in the program.
Kids C.A.R.E. will provide wonderful opportunities for St. Mary students while meeting the needs of our school families. Many thanks to the St.
Mary’s Feasibility Committee for gathering data and preparing for this program, Mary Beth Ah of St. Cecilia for her experience and insight, and St. John School Extended Day Program for their model policy book.
