Welcome to MyZone
We are so excited to welcome you to MyZone for the 2022 school year, starting on
Monday, September 19, 2022.
What is MyZone?
A Youth Activity Center – Newberg Campus
MyZone is a community partnership, after-school program for middle school students. MyZone is hosted by Northwest Christian Church. This is the 8th year that MyZone has been operating. MyZone is open to all middle school students in the Newberg area regardless of where they attend school. Public, private and homeschool students are all welcome at MyZone.
When does MyZone happen?
Monday - Thursday | 3:45 to 5:00 PM
MyZone happens every Monday through Thursday from 3:45 to 5:00 PM and follows the Newberg School District Calendar. When Newberg schools are in school, MyZone is open. When Newberg schools do not have school, there is no MyZone.
MyZone starts on Monday, September 19, 2022.
What Do Students Do at MyZone?
The reason it is called MyZone is because students are provided several options or “zones” for different activities. Students can play games like basketball, volleyball, and wall ball in the gym. They can learn how to cook, play music, and make art. Students can hang-out outside, toss a football or kick a soccer ball. And, there is always the option to relax, enjoy snacks or get help with homework. And then… there’s video games (X-box, PS4, Nintendo Switch), 9-square, foosball, gaga-ball, corn hole and lots of smiles and laughter.
Getting Signed Up
All students must have registered online via this form and have parent/guardian permission in order to attend MyZone. This permission slip is also required to ride the bus to and from MyZone. You can get a permission slip from the main office at MVMS or CVMS or from Northwest Christian Church.
How does my student get to MyZone?
Chehalem Valley MS and Mountain View MS both have buses after school drop students off at Northwest Christian Church for MyZone. All students must have a signed parent/guardian permission to attend MyZone and to ride school provided transportation to MyZone and home from MyZone. Students may also walk, bike or get a ride to and from MyZone.
How does my student get home after MyZone?
Newberg School District has buses that pick students up at 5:00 pm and takes them home. For more details about transportation to and from MyZone, talk to your school office. Students may also walk, bike or get picked up from MyZone.
