The second half of the academic year is finally here. We have some great programs lined up for our members and some exciting pilot programs designed to help families in a rush. As a reminder that all members who attend schools in Webster, MA a bus fee of $20 per month must be paid for your child to attend the bus and the Boys & Girls Club. Statements are printed every month the week of the 15th for distribution to parents, and payment is due by the 1st of the following month.
As a reminder a majority of our programs are included in your child’s membership fee but a few are subject to a charge. Below you will find our Spring Program Schedule. All programs require registration, which you can find in the entryway (in the blue file holder). Programs officially begin the week of February 12.
