Dear Club Members, Parents, and Families:

The new school year has started, and the Club is bursting with familiar faces, new members, and really wonderful programs for all to enjoy, kids and staff alike. 

Since we opened the new building last Fall, we have enrolled over 200 new members and counting!  That is great news, and we couldn't be happier.  Because of that, we are continually looking at the best practices to serve our members and families. 

Teaching, coaching, and providing programs are our main goals for the kids, but safety is always our primary concern.  As you most likely know,  all volunteer and staff members are child-safety compliant which means they have been background checked and fingerprinted with the Department of Justice via LiveScan and educated for child protection issues. 

With that in mind, and effective immediately, we have initiated a new policy for adults in the Club building.   

  • All adults on staff will be identified with a laminate badge so members and families recognize immediately who works and volunteers at the Club.   
  • All non-staff, non-volunteer adults who enter the building will have access to only the Second Floor Reception Area which is located between the Lounge and the Office, in front of the Donor Wall.   This includes parents, guardians, and family members who are picking up children from practices and activities.   This means that parents can no longer walk through the building to locate and pick up their child.  
  • All adults picking up children will wait for their children in Reception.  We suggest that you and your child plan a meeting time for pick up with the pick-up location being the Front/Reception area.  
  • As you enter the building, please proceed to the Front Office and ask the Front Desk person to call the room where they might likely be located (i.e. Homework Club, Dance Studio, Martial Arts, and the Black Box Theatre). If you are not sure, please ask them to page your child. 
  • Clearly, special events including sports games, plays, tournaments, tours, and recitals will slightly alter this procedure and will be handled properly and accordingly by the Staff involved in those activities.

Bottom line:  Adults must be accompanied in the building, especially the Third Floor, by Staff who are identified by laminated badges. 

We know you share our concern for the safety of all the children in our community, and we welcome your participation in this new and necessary policy.

Thank you very much.  

Best regards,

On Behalf of the Salesian Boys' and Girls' Club Organization

Dear Salesian Parents,

We are very excited to share that our very own Salesian Musical Director, Carl Oser (HairsprayAnnie Jr., Lion King Kids, Taming of the Shrew, and Spring Musical TBD) will be offering piano lessons for all Club Members and vocal coaching for middle schoolers and older Friday afternoons at Salesian Boys and Girls Club. If there is interest, these lessons could be offered between 2pm-4pm on Thursdays too. Carl is an all-star teacher and the students who have worked with him have grown leaps and bounds in terms of their confidence and self-expression. His students have gone on to achieve great things including studying music at the the Marin School of the Arts and the Berklee College of Music. 

On Friday September 16th, he is offering free introductory half-hour lessons for Club members who are interested. To schedule an initial lesson on the 16th, please contact Carl directly at Beyond the 16th, his standard rate is $40/lesson for a 30-minute lesson and $80/hr for an hour lesson.
