CAMP FIRE AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAM AT THE ROOST
Friendships and social space are an important part of the middle school years. Not every part of the non-school hours of the day could and should be filled with organized activities, spent in front of electronic media or out at shops and parks. Sunnyside Swap Shop Co-op and Camp Fire Columbia collaborate to provide one of the few places specifically for middle schooler's that students love and parents feel good about: The Roost. New site on facebook.
The Roost is perched on top of the Sunnyside Methodist Church building across from Sunnyside Environmental School. The Roost is funded by family and local community donations. Families who can afford to do so, donate $55 per month for each day of the week their student Roosts. No families are turned away for lack of funds. Full and partial sponsorships are available. Your student can Roost for the day without charge their first visit. To find out how . . . www.sunnysideswapshop.org or contact Karen Hery, Sunnyside Swap Shop Co-op facilitator/coordinator (503) 407-2667.
NEW!!! ROOST AND SKATE:
New at The Roost in 2012 . . . come to The Roost on Wednesdays and have the option of spending part of your Roost day at Commonwealth Skate Park (with transportation to and from The Roost) starting the second week of school in 2012.
