The YMCA also offers 13 holidays of full day Holiday programing and Summer Camp. Programs are offered to students in K through 5th grade. YMCA participants engage in fun hands-on learning projects, STEM, Academic Enrichment, Financial Literacy, Art Knowledge and Team building Sports instruction.

Community Schools offers free afterschool and weekend programming for students in K through 5th grade in areas of performing and visual arts, sports and STM.

PS 38 became an NYC Community School in 2017 when it was awarded a 21st Century Community Learning Centers Grant titles the B.R.I.D.G.E.S. Project (Brooklyn Reaching Integration Despite Group Economic and Social Separation). This is a federally funded opportunity lead by Counseling in Schools, which brings together community organization partners to offer rich academic, extra-curricular and family programming, as well as mental health services all free of charge to the school community. For the 2019-2020 school year, Community Schools will be bringing back LeAP Teaching Artists to run digital media classes with 4th and 5th grades.

Right at School will be providing PS38 with another after school option for the coming year, in addition to PS38’s YMCA program.

The Right At School after school program runs from the time the school bell rings until 6 p.m. Parents will be able to work with Right at School to create flexible monthly schedules to support families’ busy lives. Families are able to create their own monthly schedules choosing 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5 days per week. Drop-in care is also an option. This allows parents to pay only for the days for which care is needed. Right at School also offers a 15% sibling discount.

Every day students will have a healthy snack, engage in dynamic fitness activities, student-driven projects, team building, leadership development, and have the opportunity to complete homework. Right at School also features an enriched curriculum in the form of two-week units. Examples of units include: Getting Down to Business, where students are introduced to money and commerce; Icky Experiments, where students experiment with sticky substances to learn chemistry; and Variety Show, where students rehearse and perform individual talent acts.

We are excited to partner with Right at School to provide this service to our families. Right at School is hosting a virtual “Parent Information Night” next Thursday August 5 at 6:30pm to provide an overview of their program, answer questions and get to know you. Please join us to learn more about Right at School. You can also visit their website at https://www.rightatschool.com/districts/ps-38-ny/. Please also see the attached flyer for pricing information.
