    SUN Community School:

    SUN Community schools transform schools into full-service community centers that help youth and families succeed.  They build upon positive assets already in communities and tailor their events, classes, services, activities to what the local community wants.  There is a broad range of activities provided at the SUN Community Schools, the primary activities are considered to be:

    • extended day academic and enrichment programs that are linked to the school day
    • family involvement and strengthening programs
    • health and social services for students, families and community
    • community events
    • adult education

    SUN School starts after the start of the school year, on Oct. 1st. You register per term, and are not guaranteed a spot. The days your child attends vary, and are usually 2-3 times per week. Applications will go home with your child about a week before the start of them term.

    YMCA: (On-Site)

    The YMCA offers fee-based school enrichment programs to children ages 5 to 12.  It is located at Grout Elementary on school days and off-site on non-school days.  Through local school partnerships they provide opportunities for children to enrich their physical and emotional needs while enhancing their academic needs.  As a result, we create a safe and fun atmosphere that fosters new friendships, improves social skills and provides a chance to learn and grow every day.

    Y Arts: (Off-Site)

    PPS will provide busing from Grout to the Y Arts facility. This is a program like our on-site YMCA at school, they will just be taking the overflow of students from Grout.

    There will be a slightly different fee to account for transportation, but it will be similar.

    Please turn in your registration to our school YMCA, and they will inform you if you will be at the on-site YMCA program or at the off-site Y Arts program.
