2021-2022 BGSD Calendar
Afterschool Programming - Fees
BGC Leduc Membership Year officially runs in accordance with the school year. For summer registration purposes (i.e. to recieve member rate discounts) a membership for the upcoming school year will need to be purchased. Fees for the 2021-2022 Membership Year will be $390.00 for the first child and $225 for each additional child and must be paid in full upon registration. In addition, we must receive all required bond cheques and/or agreements (volunteer, late pick, bussing) within one week of registration or you risk your registration being cancelled. Registration fee for the first child will include 1 West Jet raffle booklet and 1 Poker Night ticket that parents may choose to sell to recover some of the registration fee costs. Payment options are available, please contact Leslie at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
BGC Leduc follows the Black Gold School Division Calendar, meaning that when their Leduc schools are closed, the Club is also closed. This include school holidays, PD days and closures due to inclement weather. In addition, BGC Leduc may be closed to accommodate a special Club activity (i.e. retreat), but parents will be advised of this closure at least two weeks in advance. In addition, our Club programming ends approximately one week prior to the completion of the school year. This allows our staff time to prepare and transition into summer programming.
Regular hours of operation for the After School Drop-In Program are weekdays from 3:00 pm to 6:00 pm and 2:00 pm to 6:00 pm on early dismissal days. This is our foundational program and the one through which all of our other programs operate. We offer daily, after school drop in activities with social, recreational and educational components. Activities include (but are not limited to): field house, sports and fitness opportunities, green space play, homework assistance, computers, arts and crafts, and free play.
Afterschool Programming - Volunteer Commitment
All parents are required to complete a set number of volunteer hours per membership year. The number of hours required are adjusted yearly based on such factors as registration numbers, activities planned and Club fundraising needs/goals. These hours allow us to keep our costs down, plus they allow parents the opportunity to actively contribute to their children’s Club experience. These hours are essential to the function of BGC Leduc and represent the minimal volunteer commitment required for us to operate efficiently and effectively. We, of course, welcome and appreciate any volunteering our parents are able to contribute over and above this requirement. All volunteer opportunities will be sent through Track it Forward, as they occur. It is your responsibility to ensure you are receiving these emails as we have no way of knowing if you are not.
Our 2021 - 2022 volunteer commitment is as follows:
Our Semester One (September 1st, 2021 to December 31st, 2021)
You must complete the following:
If the full commitment is not met by December 31st, deposit #1 of $400.00 per child registered will be cashed 1 week after session end date.
Semester Two (January 1st, 2022 to May 30th, 2022)
You must complete the following:
If the full commitment is not met by May 30th, deposit #2 of $400.00 per child registered will be cashed 1 week after session end date.
Our programs are enriched through the generous support we receive from our parents and the community. Occasionally, at our discretion, we may offer to credit volunteer hours in lieu of a donation or specific service (i.e. securing of sponsorship on our behalf). Parents are also encouraged to bring forward to us their own creative ideas for meeting their volunteer commitment which we will evaluate on an individual basis.
One of the luckiest things that can happen to you in life is, I think, to have a happy childhood.
Childhood is a tricky business. Usually, something goes wrong.
To have your childhood dream realized is a really big deal.
Childhood is a short season.
