RANDOLPH TWP. - The Randolph YMCA will host an after care program for students at the Randolph Middle School beginning in September.

Parents and students of the middle school are invited to an open house at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, June 7 at the Program House on the hill at the Randolph YMCA.

This new program is designed for students to learn, exercise, play and have fun with new and old friends until 6 p.m. every school day, all in a supervised environment.

Parents and students at the open house have the chance to tour the facilities and meet program staff leadership.

When the new school year begins, a school bus will transport middle school students directly to the Y at the end of the school day for a variety of activities focusing on socialization and dedicated homework time. Tuition includes transportation and a wide range of changing programs to keep everyone engaged and active.

Activities

The students will gather at the Program House on the hill at the Y where they will participate in pickle ball, ZUMBA, spinning classes, basketball, yoga or Pilates. Homework help and tutoring in language arts is also available.

Water activities are held a short walk away at the Y’s main facility. Aqua basketball and volleyball as well as exercising in the Y’s unique underwater gym provide opportunities for all interest groups. Swim lessons will be available for a fee.

This fun and safe school-year program is the result of a collaboration between the Y and the school district and is partially funded by Randolph Municipal Alliance Committee.

Financial assistance through the Randolph YMCA Annual Fund may be available.

Initially, enrollment in the after school program will be limited to 54 students, as there will only be one bus to transport students from the middle school to the YMCA.
