What to Know about PCH Afternoon Classes:

The Purchase Community House provides a drop-in center and afternoon classes for the children of Purchase and surrounding communities from mid-September through mid-May. To participate in the drop-in center or afternoon classes, an annual After School Program Membership fee must be paid. An Emergency Contact Form and Release Form is also required for each family. Those forms can now be submitted automatically while signing up for Membership online. Once the After School Program Membership fee is paid, the child's name is added to our sign-in list. Each child is required to sign in and out each day.

Exciting Afternoon Classes ranging from sports to crafts to cooking and more are offered in Fall, Winter and Spring Terms of 7 sessions each for an additional fee. Descriptions of the current term's classes are listed below. Registration for classes and drop-in is accepted in person at the Purchase Community House on or after the opening registration date for each term.

Parents are responsible for arranging their child's transportation to and from the Purchase Community House after school. Bus transportation is available after school for students from the Purchase Elementary School to the Purchase Community House for a fee. For the 2016-2017 school year, the Purchase Community House will be managing the transportation including registration, daily attendance and fees. J & R Tours will provide a 24 passenger mini-bus for the approximately 145 days the PCH is open. You can find more information about the bus here.

When: Thursday 3:45-4:30

Fee: $125 for 7 sessions

 

Build it! Fly it! Keep it!

 

Take your building and flying skills to the next level and join us for Hobby Quest's Extreme Flight! This session we are going to build really cool planes that know what it means to be Extreme! Of course every pilot needs to start out with a little training, so first we'll build the J3 Piper, a lightweight balsa wood glider used for training pilots! Next we'll build the ultra-cool balsa wood Airhawk. The Airhawk was a fighter plane that was used during the Second World War. Some of the most extreme flying machines are the ones we see flying in space. The super cool glow in the dark UFO is going to magically fly being controlled just by the palm of your hand! Not only will it light up like a real spacecraft, but it will fly as high as 10 feet! If that wasn't extreme enough, you'll also be well on your way to knowing everything there is to know about flight when we teach you how planes fly, and what each part of the airplane is for. Pretty soon you'll be ready to start your own flight training!
