"Our Quality of Life Fosters Opportunity"

NewsWelcome Back to S.T.A.R.S.

The 2017/2018 academic year has begun and students in grades TK-8 have returned to the City of Yucaipa Community Services Department’s “S.T.A.R.S.” (Science, Technology, Arts, Recreation for Success) Before and After School Program.  Since its inception in 2014, the “S.T.A.R.S.” Program provides a safe, affordable, quality before and after school program, which strives to assist students in achieving higher grades through homework completion, and encourages school attendance with engaging activities.  Now located on eight local school campuses, students will consistently be involved in a variety of educational activities throughout the school year.

“S.T.A.R.S.” staff creates opportunities for children to actively participate in extracurricular activities.  A 2016/2017 “S.T.A.R.S.” parent from Valley Elementary School recently shared her appreciation for the program as her son attended “S.T.A.R.S.” during his kindergarten school year. “He loved the program so much he would ask that we wait to pick him up until closing. He loved the activities provided by the staff, as well as the outdoor time. The staff who works with the kids are excellent and friendly. My son will be enrolled in STARS next year as well – without a doubt!”

The City continues to accept enrollment applications for the 2017/2018 academic year.  Parents interested in enrolling their child may contact their school site or the Yucaipa Community Center for an application and parent handbook.  For more information regarding the Yucaipa “S.T.A.R.S.” Program, please contact Sarah Martinez at (909)790-7460 extension 322, or visit our website at www.yucaipa.org.
