What Is Club158?

CLUB158 is an optional after-school program that is run by the Parents’ Association in support of PS158. There is a fee to participate, which will vary based on the number and type of classes your child(ren) are registered for. CLUB158 fees vary by class but they are competitive with market value.

 

If you register your child(ren) to participate in CLUB158 you must review and agree to all CLUB158 policies and procedures. This program is held at PS158 and therefore is in alignment with many of the guidelines set forth by the school but CLUB158 also has its own set of guidelines, policies, and procedures in place, which are outlined below. 

 

CLUB158 is available to all students in grades K through 5. For our families in PreK (and other PS158 families looking for additional options), we have identified two community programs that will pick-up students at school and bring them to their location for programming.

  •     Hex & Co (https://hex-east.jumbula.com/#/home)
    • Variety of programs offered from end of school to 5:30pm
    • Option to extend to 6:00pm for additional fee
    • Programming runs 9/8 – 12/23 and follows DOE calendar
    • Hex & Co also offers 9:00am – 4:30pm programming on holidays when school is closed
  •     PingPod (http://pingpod.com/ps158)
    • Programming runs Wednesdays 9/14 - 12/21 or Fridays 9/16 - 12/23; 13 classes total, with breaks for school holidays
    • Program is 2:50pm to 5:00pm

 

Policies & Procedures

CLUB158 fosters a harmonious environment where children feel safe. Please review these guidelines with your child so they may enjoy the program. All children should:

  • Follow the PS158 school guidelines for behavior including respecting others, our school property and adhering to all safety rules set forth during the school day.

  • Cooperate with CLUB158 supervisors and instructors.

  • Remain at their designated space while waiting for CLUB158 instructors to take them to class.

  • Remain with their instructors during class, until their parent/guardian signs them out at pick-up.

Unacceptable behaviors include using profanity, disrespecting others and their space, failure to comply with directions, excessive horseplay, and inappropriate or violent physical contact. 

 

There is a STRICT no cell phone / digital device policy; any students who have a cell phone / digital device must have it turned off and put away during CLUB158 hours. Students are prohibited from filming or taking photos during Club158 hours.   

 

CLUB158 will report incidents of unacceptable behavior to the parents/guardians of all children. If your child becomes disruptive or does something dangerous it may result in a suspension of the child’s next CLUB158 class. If the behavior continues it could lead up to dismissal from CLUB158. CLUB158 reserves the right to remove a child from the program for unacceptable behavior at any point in time. No refunds will be given if a student is removed from the program for disciplinary reasons. Students are upheld to the same standard of behavior expected during school hours for students of PS158. 

 

Check In and Attendance

 

**If your child was absent from school, they cannot attend CLUB158 classes that day**

 

Children must be in the building at the time of their PS158 dismissal to attend after-school programming. Students are allowed to be signed out of school (in alignment with school policies) but they must be signed back in the building by their school dismissal time to attend their after-school programming. Any students not in the building at 2:50pm will not be allowed to attend CLUB158 that day.

 

At school dismissal, children enrolled in CLUB158 classes will be escorted to a designated area (pending their grade/class). They will be separated by CLUB158 class and assigned tables to wait at until picked up for the after-school programming. Our CLUB158 supervisors will take attendance.

 

At 3:00pm, CLUB158 instructors will escort the children to their designated classroom. If you know your child will be absent, please email the CLUB158 SUPERVISORS in advance.

 

Dismissal & Pick-Up

CLUB158 dismissal is 5:00pm.

 

Students must be picked up at 5:00pm. There is NO late/extended day program offered at this time.

 

All CLUB158 classes end at 5:00pm, at which time, the instructors will bring the children to the yard for pick-up. Parents/Guardians will pick up their child(ren) in the yard. 

 

The guardian or adult picking up must show their PS158 badge (issued to families at the start of the school year) to have the child released to them. If you need additional badges, please contact the PA (pa@ps158.org).

 

Additionally, parents/guardians will be required to sign out the student(s) as well.

 

We cannot release your child to anyone without parental consent. Please include all acceptable pick-up parties when registering your child on your CLUB158 online account. If the person picking your child up is not on that list, we CANNOT release your child to them. If you anticipate a person who is not on your list of authorized parties will pick-up your child, please notify CLUB158 in writing ahead of time. Please note, this person will be required to show a picture ID at pick-up.

 

For those with older children, if you would like your child to be dismissed to walk home, please email CLUB158 (club158@ps158.org) with your approval. Students will only be authorized to walk home based on the written consent of parents which must include the specific days/dates or approval for the entirety of the semester. 

 

 

Early Pick-Up

CLUB158 must be notified ahead of time in writing for all non-emergency early pick-ups. Parents/guardians should enter through the school’s main entrance and tell the guard at the front desk that they are there to pick-up the child. The guard will alert a CLUB158 supervisor who will bring the child to the parent/guardian. Under no circumstances is a parent/guardian to go through the school to find a child.

 

 

Late Pick-Up

You must pick your child up from the yard immediately at dismissal. There is a grace period of 5 minutes, after which a late fee is charged. A fee will be charged for ALL late pick-ups: $20 for the first 6-15 minutes; $35 for each subsequent 15 minutes. Calling DOES NOT eliminate your obligation to pay this fee; although letting us know if you’re going to be late is greatly appreciated.

 

All children must vacate the building by 5:30pm by order of the School Safety Department/City of New York, and any person in violation of these procedures will be suspended from CLUB158 activities.

 

 

Other Attendance Protocols

We cannot refund for missed classes and no make-up classes are offered, this is inclusive of sick days (COVID and NON-COVID) as well as general absences.

 

 

Refund & Cancellation Policy

Please note: CLUB158 is not in session on holidays, school closures, half days or days when school is closed due to inclement weather. CLUB158 is unable to offer make-up classes or refunds for classes canceled due to holidays, half days or inclement weather. 100% of the tuition will be refunded (less prorated fee for classes attended) if you withdraw the student AND notify us, in writing, within the first two weeks of classes. ($20 registration fee is non-refundable).

 

NO REFUNDS will be issued after the third week of classes.

 

Transfers will be allowed between classes, on the same day you are registered, through October 7th. AFTER THAT DATE, NO TRANSFERS WILL BE ALLOWED. There will be no exceptions.  

 

We reserve the right to cancel classes with insufficient enrollment. If a class is canceled due to low enrollment, we will be happy to place your child in an alternative class or refund your tuition.

  • Registration fee per student, per semester (non-refundable): $20.

  • Tuition per class/per semester: $640-$820, as specified.

  • Late pick-up fee (up to first 15 minutes after dismissal): $20.

  • Late pick-up fee (for each subsequent 15 minutes): $35.

 

Health & Safety

There will NOT be a nurse on-site during CLUB158 hours.

 

If a child falls ill during CLUB158, the designated guardian will be called for immediate pick-up. The child will be removed from their classroom and will remain with the supervisor until the designated guardian arrives.

 

Supervisors will address any minor injuries or medical needs that arise (e.g., bandages, ice packs, EpiPens, etc.) Anything more urgent or requiring the attention of a medical professional will be addressed by calling 911 and the child(ren)’s guardians.

 

 

Snacks

Snack time will take place in between school dismissal and the start of Club158 classes. It is the family’s responsibility to supply snack for their child(ren). Families are not able to drop off snack during the day; if you want your child(ren) to have a snack, please send it in their backpacks to school.

Did you know that the brainpower inside your favorite smart device now houses over a billion transistors? These transistors are the fundamental building blocks of modern electronic devices. Small size yet more functionality has driven the technology roadmaps for electronics. In this program participants explore the world of hardware ...electrical and electronic circuits. Participants learn basic concepts of an electric current, voltage, conduction, resistance while building circuits to do simple tasks like light a bulb, power a fan, make a functioning radio. From there they will look into electronics with transistors and integrated circuits. Note: Program is specifically designed for young students. No soldering! Circuit designs use regular 1.5V batteries.

Every video game must follow a basic story line which has five parts: setting, plot, characters, interactive objects and goal. Just like an interesting movie or a book, these five parts together give the story a purpose. The Video games our participants create will allow users to experience and control that story! Our video-gamers-in-training, learn about:

  • landscaping and environmental fabrication capabilities in video gaming to create the setting and mood.
  • designing and programming characters to move in their game worlds.
  • capturing event triggers to shift behaviors of the characters.
  • adding power-ups, health and timer.
  • creating multi-level games.
