Havurah Youth Center (HYC), the JCCSF's outstanding licensed afterschool program, can be your child's home away from home. Grattan students are bused daily, arriving each and every afternoon at the JCCSF to enjoy a wide range of activities, including swimming, performance and visual arts, music, planting in the rooftop garden, science experiments or playing a game in the gym.* Our talented and nurturing teaching staff provides a safe environment for children to explore new things and gain self-esteem. HYC parents find community as their children learn valuable social skills and make new friends. Families of all cultures and backgrounds are welcome. Regular Hours: Monday – Friday, 2:00 – 6:00 pm * Special discounts. HYC children receive discounts on most JCCSF recreation classes and are escorted to and from these classes.
The Grattan Community also utilizes the Boys' and Girls' Club (ph: 415.221.6100),
and have an arrangement to pick up children when school ends.
Please contact them directly for more information.
After School Enrichment
The PTA has organized afterschool enrichment classes designed to encourage participation from children from both the on-site after care programs as well as those who return home at the end of the school day. We welcome children from off-site aftercare programs but do not currently have arrangements for pick-up in place so families are responsible for transportation.
Lasting for 75 to 90 minutes after-school, these programs encompass a broad array of different activities aimed at engaging children and enriching their school experience. At the end of each school year, we evaluate the current programs and determine what to put in place for next year based upon feedback from parents and classroom observations.
Sign up for enrichment classes typically starts during the 3rd week of school in the Fall and then in mid January. Registration forms will appear in the PTA folders that get sent home every week and also on the Grattan web-site.
Because we do not want cost to be a barrier, we have arranged for scholarships in every class. We hope these scholarships help to reduce financial barriers, especially for the more costly programs. Ms. Toni, who works in Grattan's front office, administers the scholarship program and also oversees registration. If there are not enough spaces available in the first semester for all of the children interested in a particular class, we give those children first priority when sign up occurs again in January.
