Lower School Kids Keep Learning When Classes End!
October 31, 2011
Lower School students this year are excited to be busy after school in their choice of more than a dozen fun, educational, and creative after-school programs.
Activities are specific to student age and interest. “Creative Studio,” taught by Lower School teacher David Rufo, for instance, is designed for First and Second Graders who want to use their creativity and imagination to explore painting, sculpting, even making movies.
“Holiday Card Creations” is a club for Third, Fourth, and Fifth Graders. Students meet monthly with Lower School world language teacher Nathan Lutz to create greeting cards related to a particular theme – they’ve just made their own spooky Halloween cards for family and friends. November’s theme is Thanksgiving.
“Girl Sprouts,” for First through Third Grade girls, is designed to help them develop confidence, character, and courage while having fun together, exploring new things, and working on service learning projects. Girls Sprouts meets twice a month with co-leaders Karen Brang and Allison Garza.
Whether it’s being on the staff of the Lower School Newspaper, learning the sport of lacrosse, baking cookies, playing chess, becoming more comfortable communicating in Chinese or Spanish, or learning about the Oneida language and culture, there’s something fun for everyone!
