Open Hearth After School is in its fifth successful year, providing care, support, and enrichment to the children of the Mad River Valley.
Dear Waitsfield and Fayston Families,
The 2015-2016 Afterschool Program will start on the first day of school (Tuesday, August 25).
Whether your child is joining the program for the first time or returning, we ask that you complete a registration form, which includes the contract on page three.
If you are unsure of your child's schedule, you might choose to register as a drop-in, and later update the contract as needed for specific days.
All after school participants need to furnish updated immunization or exemption records to have on file with the Open Hearth After-School Program.
State law requires that all licensed after school programs maintain these records in addition to those maintained by participating schools. Plan to include a copy of the updated records with your child’s registration form.
Here is the link to access our 2015-2016 OHASK Registration Forms.The forms can also be found on the sites for both Fayston and Waitsfield Elementary Schools, or requested by e-mail at email@example.com.
This year we would like to welcome back Katie Doherty to our 2015-2016 OHASK program and welcome two new staff teachers. Mary Seaberg is currently on the Fayston Elementary School staff, and Malcolm Piper is a substitute teacher at Waitsfield Elementary School.
Mary comes to us with a degree in English and Elementary Ed from Norwich University and a wide range of experience working with children. Mary loves being outdoors and loves mentoring kids. She has been a member of an AmeriCorps team in the Midwest, serving communities in areas of education and disaster relief, has worked at the Sherman Lake YMCA Outdoor Center in Michigan, and currently directs the Fayston, Girls on the Run program.
Malcolm is a graduate of Colgate University with a major in Environmental Geography and a minor in Education. Malcolm also has a wide range of experience working with children. He has done volunteer teaching in Thailand, designed an outdoor education curriculum, and worked in many schools in Vermont substituting in K-12 academic settings. Malcolm is also a lover of music and directed and sang with the Colgate acapella group.
I would also like to remind you that ALL past due balances must be paid before the start of the 2015-2016 After School year in order for your children to be able to be registered.
