Early DISMISSAL 

Count on the YMCA to hold an event on PLC Early dismissal days for youth grades k-5 at the Western Elementary.  We provide activities and snacks from 12:30pm-4:00pm.  Pre-registration is required and flyers are sent home with all eligible students.

Emotional Support Group

In cooperation with Bursting Bubbles Foundation we offer a weekly support group.  They meet the first Tuesday of each month at 6:00pm in the Coffee Room.  This is a safe place to share any emotions you are struggling with, allowing you to work through your problems. Other members can help you work through your struggles by providing you with strategies that have worked for them.
