Hello Y-Club Families, We have missed you!

It's that time again! Registration is open for the 2021-2022 school year. Our hope is to be in 9 locations within the Pickerington Local School district for Fall of 2021. Open locations will depend on enrollment and program space at each school. If a determination is made that we will not be able to open a certain location, communication will be sent out the first week of July, 2021. We appreciate the school district's support in serving the Pickerington community for it's 29th year of before and after school programming!

Our Y Clubs include: Diley, Fairfield, Harmon, Heritage, Pickerington, Sycamore, Toll Gate, Tussing and Violet.

At time of registration a $25/child registration fee will be charged to complete the registration. You will receive a 'welcome to the program' email once your child(ren) is registered. Wait lists will be handled in the order in which the registration has been received.

Y-Club operates from 7:00 AM until School starts and from the time school releases until 6:00 PM, on any day that school is in session.

TGMS PTO Virtual Meeting

Join us for the final TGMS PTO meeting of 20-21, Tuesday, May 11, at 7:00 pm. The meeting code is:

7th gr. Immunization information

Immunizations Requirements for all 6th graders

going into 7th grade in the Fall of 2021

Per the Ohio Department of Health, all students entering the 7th grade must provide documentation of receiving the Tdap and Meningococcal (MCV4) vaccines before being allowed to enter junior high next year. You may send the record of receiving these immunizations to your School Nurse until the end of this school year.

The Nationwide Children's Hospital Mobile Clinic comes to either Harmon Middle School or Tussing Elementary on certain Wednesdays during the month. They are also in other areas on the east side for other days of the week. If your 6th grader still needs the required immunizations to enter 7th grade, they can be completed at the Mobile Clinic.

--See attached flyer for the contact information to set up an appointment if needed.

If you have any questions, please contact your School Nurse.
