Childswork Learning Center

Executive Director April 2016

Dear Childswork Families,

We all hope you and your family had a wonderful Spring Break!

I have a few reminders and announcements to share with you:

  • The deadline for applying for financial assistance/scholarships is April 30th. Childswork partners with TADS (a Financial Aid Assessment organization) to help us administer our financial aid program. TADS provides financial aid worksheets, application forms, assistance filling out forms and ultimately recommendations to Childswork so that we can use our financial aid dollars objectively, fairly and effectively. To apply for financial aid, please start by going to www.tads.com. Please see our website for more information about this process. Scholarship decisions will be made by the end of May/early June.
  • We are looking for people who are committed, enthusiastic and willing to lend a hand to our school Board! Board commitments are a minimum of two years. The current Board meets on the second Tuesday of every month (subject to change based on the needs of the Board). If you are interested in serving on our Board, please send Kim (kim@childswork.org) or Smitha Chadaga (Board President/srchadaga@hotmail.com) a letter describing your background and interest as well as a resume by April 15th. We will vote on the new Board members at our May 3th meeting and new members will begin at our June 7th meeting. Feel free to contact me or any Board member if you have questions.
  • Check out the bulletin board outside of the main office. We are starting work on our exciting new playground project! We will be depaving the small playground on the east side of the school and transforming it into a natural playspace. Part of our Annual Fund this year is being used to get us started on this exciting project. Save the date for June 11 which will be our big depaving party!
  • Finally, Summer Camp offerings and registration is now available in the office an online! We are offering many of the old favorites as well as some new themes. And, back by popular demand…yoga camp will be offered over several weeks as well! Camp fills quickly, so register soon to guarantee your spot.

See you in the hallways!
