Embark on an adventure that turns a familiar space like a classroom into a screening event that strongly encourages thinking and reflection. The film selection is based on contemporary French film and culture.  Kids will be able to watch one film each week from start to finish and be able to talk about what they saw and how it made them think and feel. Students can share ideas that may not normally be their topic of discussion but are things that shape our lives.

Creativity and Leadership

During this course, students will be challenged to express themselves in new ways as they learn self-awareness, empathy and emotional intelligence. Each week they will participate in hands-on learning activities such as making “para-cord” bracelets and calming jars to learn about coping skills. They will also make tie-dye t-shirts as they learn about self-expression and how to be their most authentic self. Students are challenged to think creatively, and self-expression is highly encouraged. By the end of this 6 week course, your children will step out into the world more confident in themselves, and have a stronger sense of their personal leadership identity. 

 

Yoga 

Tuesday and Thursday

Instructor: Michael Johnson

Ages: (PS-K) (1st-5th)

Tuesday 3:30 to 4:15pm (PS-K)

Thursday 3:30-4:30pm (1st-5th)

Cost: $120 6 classes (1/7 and 1/8 to 2/11 and 2/12)

During Mr. Michael’s Yoga after-school program, children will become familiar with the body, balance and movement through yoga poses adapted to their bodies. Each week, children will learn poses grouped in one subject. For example, if the week’s theme were The Ocean, we might explore balance and strengthening poses related to aquatic life. After movement and flow with each set of poses, we will then play games around them. An example I have out of a plethora is Yoga Free Style Freeze Dance where the children dance to music and freeze in a pose of choice from the day. To exercise creative thought and application, Yoga Detective is played where the children are given a clue like “a pose with two hands and one foot on the floor” and the students can show any pose they’ve learned that matches the description to find the pose! These two are examples of many fun games. Each week’s game will be detailed and sent before the after school program each week. “I look forward to posing with you”
