The 2011 S.A.F.E. Summer Program is just weeks away! First session will begin on June 6, at Runge Park in Santa Fe. We will have three fun weeks packed with fieldtrips, guest speakers, games, art, and all sorts of excitement. We are limiting each week to a maximum of 60 students for grades 1-5 (must have completed 1st grade). Your child may attend only one of the weeks in order to serve more youth.

Youth 6th-12th grades will have the opportunity to go on fieldtrips three fridays in June, beginning June 10. Teens will also be offered free archery, golf and tennis lessons throughout the summer.

Space is limited, so fill out your applications immediately and return them (with $5.00 committment fee attached) to the Mark Kilroy Foundation drop box as per instructions. Watch for the applications at your child's (SFISD) school. They should be bringing them home by the second week in May. For your convenience, forms will also be available at the Mark Kilroy Foundation S.A.F.E. Center, 12026 16th Street. A drop box is located right above the forms.

We would like to add a big thank you to our sponsors and members of the Safe Communities Coalition, The Mark Kilroy Foundation, the City of Santa Fe, and Santa Fe Independent School District.

NEWSFLASH!! We are adding a new FREE Hitchcock Summer Program this year. Dates will be from July 11-22nd. Your child may only attend one free week, so that more students may be able to attend. Forms for this new program will be out by the 4th week of May and will be delivered to Hitchcock ISD (as well as having them here at the Mark Kilroy Foundation). The format for this program will be the same as Santa Fe's...four days each week for 1-5th grades and two free fieldtrips for Hitchcock 6-12th grades, on July 15 and July 22.
