Class Descriptions:

American Girl Doll Club

Does your child love dolls? Let them explore, through dolls, what is was like to be an American Girl in different times and places throughout history. Each week students will participate in an activity that reflects the historical theme of the week and of course play with American Girl Dolls! Students are welcome to bring their own dolls, but dolls and accessories will be provided for play during class as well. Students will have fun playing while discovering the similarities and differences of children throughout history as well as today.

 

Animals Around the World: Become a Zoologist

Grab your passports and come on a WILD adventure as we explore different animals around the world. We will travel to each continent and discover animal characteristics and their behaviors. Students will be immersed into different animal habitats and fill their discovery journal with fun facts for each animal. In addition, students will create an animal craft each week using paint, clay paper, and/ or other mediums. If your child has a curiosity for exploring animals and a love for crafts, get buckled up and join us for a ‘ROAR’ing adventure!

Cardio Sharp/Cardio Sharp Jr.

Physically fit students perform better academically, behave better at school and home, and are simply more comfortable in their own skin. While we know the roles diet, homework, and sleep play in ‘powering up’ a student’s ‘network’ for the classroom, the last 20 years of scientific research has revealed a new, major player in the ‘ready‐to‐learn’ domain – cardiovascular fitness. Cardio Sharp is driven by this relationship between enthusiastic, vigorous play and cognitive and behavioral development. Modified games, sports, and challenges equip students with exciting, efficient tools for realizing the promises of cardiovascular conditioning. Happy, comfortable kids with better grades – that’s our business, that’s our mission. Cost includes T-shirt, hat, and water bottle!

We will learn to draw different styles and different types of pictures each week all while adding our own details and style to each piece. We will begin to appreciate the differences in our artwork and in those around us and learn how drawing can help us in every aspect of life- even if we aren't the most gifted artist! This fun class will see our students bringing home different drawings each week and ideas of how to use this skill in school and in life.
