FIELD & DRAMA PROGRAM INFORMATION
*Everyone who is a Westfield resident who had a child who participated in the field/drama programs in 2019 and has a child ENTERING grades 3rd-8th, will be receiving a mailing from us sometime the next few days. This summer, we are limiting the field program registration to 100 participants (25 for drama). We are also limiting registration to children who are entering grades 3rd-8th. Once again, we will only be signing up Westfield residents at first. Non-Westfield residents will be put on a waiting list. In addition, all 2nd and 3rd grades' students at WACS will be receiving the same mailing (since they were too young to participate in 2019). All returning participants as well as current 2nd and 3rd grades' students can sign up for the field/drama programs starting at 8:00 a.m. on MONDAY, JUNE 7TH. We are encouraging everyone to sign up ASAP as we have limited spots this summer. Information on how to sign up is below.
We will be limiting the field program to 100 participants this summer, so we encourage everyone to SIGN UP AS SOON AS POSSIBLE (more info below). Registration will be limited to participants who are ENTERING grades 3-8 this fall. We will be separating our participants into groups of 25. We will have two groups come in the morning each day (Monday-Friday) from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and two groups come in the afternoon each day (Monday-Friday) from 1 to 5 p.m. Participants will only be allowed to come to the program during the time their group is scheduled. The same groups will stay together all summer unless attendance becomes low or state guidelines loosen up.
In addition, the playground will be CLOSED to all kids under 13 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. unless they have adult supervision. We will give our participants a chance each day to play on the playground while under the supervision of our staff. For afternoon participants, they will still be able to participate in open swim at the pool if they desire. We will be limiting registration for the drama program to 25 Westfield residents ENTERING grades 3-8 in the fall.
If you have any questions, feel free to call or text Andrew at 753-6842, or message us on Facebook.
This program is for children pre-school and up and is co-ed. The program runs from late June through early to mid August and sign-ups are in early June.
We usually split this program into 2 groups:
8 to 10 Years Old
11 Years Old and Up
Throughout the summer, participants will take part in various activities/rehearsals which will culminate in an end of summer performance/recital.
*Please note that the cost of this program also includes all swim programs (lessons, open, swim team, etc.) as well as our field program.
We usually have 1 drama leader and in the past different parents or student volunteers have helped out. Last summer, our drama leader was Lucy Knappenberger who is a musical theater major at SUNY Fredonia.
This is a program in which WACS students can gain community service hours.
