Dear Parent,

The SAY Detroit Play Center (SDPC) 2021-2022 School Year afterschool program will provide engaging, thoughtful, enriching, and dynamic academic, artistic, and physical education and social engagement.  We will provide afterschool meals and snacks.  Our staff will be trained, loving, and engaged.  Our facility is fantastic: a full-size court donated by the Detroit Pistons, a softball, and baseball field donated by the Detroit Tigers, a full-size football field donated by the Detroit Lions’ quarterback, Matthew Stafford, a professional music studio provided by the national organization Notes4Notes, a dance studio, an art studio, and a spacious learning area. 

The SAY Detroit Play Center, thanks to funding from the SAY Detroit, is happy to announce that we can provide this program free of charge.  However, since spots are limited, we are asking for the following commitments:

❏    Students must be engaged participants in all activities.

❏    Students must exhibit excellent citizenship.  This includes all participants being respectful to all young people in the program, all adults and interns, and to themselves.

❏    Students will report each day to the afterschool program no later than 4:15 p.m.  A student who is tardy more than seven times may face suspension and/or dismissal from the program. 

❏    Students who are absent more than five times may face suspension and/or dismissal from the program

If your child joins SDPC for the 2021-2022 School Year afterschool program you are agreeing to support a loving, safe, and active community where students are expected to build their academic, social, creative, and athletic abilities. In so doing we thank you for helping to create a stronger, safer, smarter community for all of us.

Thank you,

The SAY Detroit Play Center Staff
