What to Know about PCH Afternoon Classes:

The Purchase Community House provides a drop-in center and afternoon classes for the children of Purchase and surrounding communities from mid-September through mid-May. To participate in the drop-in center or afternoon classes, an annual After School Program Membership fee must be paid. An Emergency Contact Form and Release Form is also required for each family. Those forms can now be submitted automatically while signing up for Membership online. Once the After School Program Membership fee is paid, the child's name is added to our sign-in list. Each child is required to sign in and out each day.

Exciting Afternoon Classes ranging from sports to crafts to cooking and more are offered in Fall, Winter and Spring Terms of 7 sessions each for an additional fee. Descriptions of the current term's classes are listed below. Registration for classes and drop-in is accepted in person at the Purchase Community House on or after the opening registration date for each term.

Parents are responsible for arranging their child's transportation to and from the Purchase Community House after school. Bus transportation is available after school for students from the Purchase Elementary School to the Purchase Community House for a fee. For the 2018-2019 school year, the Purchase Community House will be managing the transportation including registration, daily attendance and fees. The Purchase Community House will provide a 24 passenger mini-bus for the approximately 145 days the PCH is open. You can find more information about the bus here.

Ultimate Kickball ( Everyone Tue. 4:30-5:15, $105 for 7 weeks )
The team up to kick is trying to score as many runs as they can each inning. Once a runner is on 2nd or 3rd base, the base runner has a choice to capture a flag or continue around the bases toward home. On the kick, they are allowed to run off the base and try to retrieve one of the four flags. If this choice is made by the base runner, they are no longer safe on a base and must run to home plate without being tagged by the ball. If they are successful in making it home, they have scored 3 runs for their team and that flag is out until the switch in the inning.
