Boys & Girls Club of Ellettsville

Good afternoon Parent & Guardians, Staff & Volunteers,  

As the winter weather keeps getting colder and colder I thought it prudent to send out a reminder of our snow day policy.
If Richland-Bean Blossom Community School Corp. closes for a snow day the Boys & Girls Club of Ellettsville will also be closed.
This means the BGCE will be closed for youth programming/child care. When RBBCSC opens back up so will the BGCE. I understand this is an inconvenience to all our families but we are thinking about the kiddos safety, your safety, as well as staff and volunteers safety.
The BGCE will continue to operate as normal on day that RBBCSC operates on a two hour delay.     
We will make every effort to communicate our Snow Day closing through local media (TV, radio, online news). We will also make a post on our Facebook Page   if you have not liked our page please do so now. We use our Facebook Page as a newsletter to keep our Club families and friends informed.

As always I thank you for the trust you give us with the care of your children. This is a responsibility we take seriously and are proud to have.

Sincerely
Oscar Gonzalez 
Ellettsville Unit Director

A special thanks to our three (wildly popular) food vendors: The Big Cheeze, La Poblana and 812 BBQ! Despite the rain, they were kept busy throughout the evening!   Thank you also to all our community partners: Science fair judges, Baxter Scientific, Cook Aviation, Go Green, Ray Amos Plastics, Parks and Recreation, Scaily Tailz, Ivy Tech, Boys & Girls Club of Ellettsville, Purdue Extension/4H, LEAP, IU Makerspace, and our own EHS engineering students!  Thank you especially, to all of our student leaders had the courage to step up, share their work with peers and families - they're sure to be representing STEAM-related community partners themselves some day!  

We hope you all enjoyed the showcase of hard work and innovative learning your children were able to share with families!
