YMCA After School Program

As you already know we are running out of space at Elder Gove School. Our projected enrollment is about 600 students. We ended last year at 565. With the growing enrollment we need to free up space. With the added numbers, we need the gym space in the elementary. I have been working with the YMCA Afterschool Program to come up with a solution that will ensure the best afterschool program for our kids. The Y did a great job of finding a place ¼ mile west of our campus at YBGR. They will have a little kitchen, play area and a designated room for activities. The site is by the water tower on the east side of 72nd off YBGR's main campus.  The students will now have a designated space to meet every day and will be in a safe environment. You will no longer have to guess if they are in the gym, classroom or outside. I truly believe this will enable the Y Afterschool Program to be the best it can be. The one downfall is there will be an increase in tuition for the program due to the Y having to lease space at YBGR. There will be more information on this later, coming directly from the Y.

Summer News

Parents,

I hope everyone had a safe and fun 4th of July. Hopefully you were able to spend quality time with friends and family as well as to light some fireworks. My family attended Laurel’s firework show and WOW!  The LVFD knows how to put on a show!

The administration has been busy getting everything ready for next year. We are expecting to have around 600 students enrolled by August. Last year our middle school had 170 students, this year we are expecting 200+ students. This means we are running out of room fast. 

The growing enrollment requires that all classrooms and spaces must be utilized throughout the campus. Choir will be in the concession area. We hired an additional special education teacher who will be doing 4th and 5th grade special education in the two breakout rooms in the elementary wing. We added another middle school teacher who will be in the middle school computer lab. The middle school has laptop carts in each classroom so the students will be able to use technology to access the internet. These adjustments mean that every classroom and space will be utilized.

I hope everyone stays cool and continues to enjoy the summer. Remember, just because school is out doesn’t mean learning stops. In order not to lose ground, students need to continue reading. I encourage you to use the school library, which will be open on July 10th and 24th, and August 7th. Bring your student, check out a book, and READ! Your child can also come into the main office to take A.R. Tests every Tuesday and Wednesday.
