Fall BOKS – Register by Friday September 15th! Starts on Tuesday September 19th!!!

Posted on: September 7th, 2017 by webmaster

BOKS (Build Our Kids’ Success) is a volunteer-run, fun, before-school physical activity program for kids. Each session lasts 6 weeks and meets 2 days per week for 45 minutes. Some of the activities include running, jumping, hopping, hula hooping, learning new skills and so much more!

BOKS will run every Tuesday and Thursday morning OUTSIDE on the back playground from 8:00 – 8:45 a.m. The 6 week fall session starts on Tuesday, September 19th and ends on Thursday, October 26th. Complete one Registration Form for each child and submit with a check for $25 (per child) made out to Haynes Organization of Parents (HOP) by Friday, September 15th.  Scholarships are available. Forms can be returned directly to the BOKS mailbox at the front desk. Approximately 40 children may participate in the session, and the participants will be chosen via lottery (if necessary). Parents will be responsible for transporting their children to school. Children who attend SED are eligible to enroll and participate. Please note, that sessions may be cancelled or moved inside due to inclement weather. We will try our best to give as much notice of cancellation as possible. This will be done via email.

We hope that you will share our enthusiasm for this program and you will, in turn, see a positive impact on your children. Please contact us with any questions, or you can check out the BOKS website ( We are asking each family to volunteer to help out with the program one morning per session – either on a Tuesday or Thursday. A Sign Up Genius will be sent out to all families enrolled. Please contact us if this is a hardship for your family.   Many hands make light work!
