EXTENDED SESSIONS/ABOVE AND BEYOND!


SIGN UP NOW!

November 1-30, 2017

11:45-2:00 Monday - Thursday

 

We are going “Above and Beyond” by providing another year with additional enrichment programs for our students.  November is “smART and ARTful" Fun and “Tasty and Yummy” month! Please don’t miss out! 

Your children will have an opportunity to attend up to four different Extended Sessions each week based on a theme. Each full session can be prepaid with your on-line application. (Please see “How to Register” at the end of this letter.) You may also choose a day your child does not attend their regular class.

Our “Extended Sessions” will run Monday thru Thursday from 11:45 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Your child will be escorted to Room 2 for lunch bunch and will either remain in that room on Tuesdays and Thursdays, or be in Room 3 for their Monday and Wednesday, for their Extended Sessions. Please pick up your child/children promptly at 2:00 p.m. Sessions can be 2 to 5 weeks long depending on the month. 

The Lunch Bunch charge will be included in all sessions. The children will go to Lunch Bunch first, but will continue with Extended Sessions with a lengthened playtime & learning time that includes exploring, story time, songs, and activities.

The head teachers for Extended Sessions are Phoebe Ostergren and Lisa Roncaioli. Lynn Sunshine will assist if the classes are large enough. Excellent programs have been developed filled with enriching and fun activities.

The weeks are organized by themed days that will build on each other for the month. This will give the children a variety of experiences throughout the week, if they choose to attend all the sessions.

During the month of November, we are offering two different art classes on Monday and Wednesday, and two different cooking classes on Tuesday and Thursday.

smART Monday
Creative Kids, Creative Hands

November 6, 13 and 27

Your young artist will create their way through the alphabet. Each day has its own letter, i.e. A is for Andy Warhol, B is for Romare Bearden buildings and C is for Alexander Calder sculptures just to name a few. They will learn about artists and art techniques using a variety of materials in fun and unusual ways. Some of the work will focus on the finished product, and some will be more about the process. This enrichment class is sure to be an enjoyable (and sometimes messy) time for all!

Tasty Tuesdays
Cooking Through the Alphabet

November 14 and 28

Your little “chefs” will be given opportunities to participate in fun, developmentally appropriate cooking experiences by creating delicious goodies.  They will learn about recipes, ingredients, measurement, tool safety and expanded “cooking vocabulary.”  In this program your children will cook through the alphabet as they make tasty treats. We’re already on letter “F.”

 ARTful Wednesday 
Art through the Alphabet

November 1, 8, 15 and 29

Your young artist will create their way through the alphabet. Each day has its own letter, i.e. A is for Andy Warhol, B is for Romare Bearden buildings and C is for Alexander Calder sculptures just to name a few.
