Serious Fun After School

“Fun is serious”!

P.S. 150Q PTA in coordination with Ms. Pate and the school administration are working on implementing “Serious Fun After School” program. It will supplement the established after school programs run by The Virtual Y and Sunnyside Community Services – not replace them.

At the April PTA meeting, Sylvia Ramsaywak, Executive Director of Serious Fun, ensured parents that all spaces, class rooms and public rooms will be shared cooperatively. Their experience in scheduling with other shared after school programs have been successful in schools such as PS 300, PS 85 and PS 166.

A description in short, “Serious Fun After School” provides enrichment classes in art, music, dance and sports, as well as homework help and free time after school.

The real beauty is in their flexible scheduling.

Participants can pick the after school attendance days according to preference and are not mandated to attend a full week – unless they choose to. As a family supported program, they can offer flexibility to parents and the fees are extremely reasonable. “Serious Fun” is a fully licensed after school child care and is a non-profit organization.

Campaign For Children

Ms. Mirelys of the Sunnyside After School program was a guest speaker at Thursday’s PTA meeting. The following is a copy of the leaflets handed out to parents to help fight for restoration of funds. The After School program is vital to a healthy community. It provides a stable environment and structured discipline that nurtures development for kids who would otherwise be left to their own devices. Whether or not your child attends After School, please join us – take action and help keep our community safe.

WITH THE MAYOR’S BUDGET CUTS, MORE THAN 47,000 CHILDREN WILL LOSE CHILD CARE AND AFTER-SCHOOL PROGRAMS.

We need YOU to send a letter to City leaders in charge of the budget and tell them to save child care and after-school care and after-school programs – programs that allow parents to keep their jobs while their children get the education opportunities they need to succeed.

Send an email to the Mayor and other elected officials by visiting www.Campaignfor ChildrenNYC.com and clicking the TAKE ACTION button on the right.

AND

Write a letter to the Mayor telling him why child care and after-school are so important to you and your family – and give it to your center director.
