EXTENDED SESSIONS/ABOVE AND BEYOND!


SIGN UP NOW!

OCTOBER 2-31, 2017

11:45-2:00 Monday - Thursday

 

We are going “Above and Beyond” by providing another year with additional enrichment programs for our students.  October is “Alphabet Fun” and “Thinking Outside the Box” 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 remain in that room for their Extended Session. 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 through-out the week, if they choose to attend all the sessions.

During the month of October, we are offering two different art classes on Monday and Wednesday.

Art through the Alphabet Monday

Creative Kids, Creative Hands

October 2, 16, 23, 30

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

October 3, 10, 17, 24, 31

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.

 Art through the Alphabet Wednesday Day 2
Creative Kids, Creative Hands

October 4, 11, 18, 25

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!

Thematic Thursdays
Thinking out of the Box

October 5, 12, 19, 26

A box can be so much more than a box!  We will paint using boxes, use our deductive reasoning skills to guess what’s in the box and incorporate boxes into imaginative play and action.  By taking inexpensive, readily available materials (boxes) we can build on your child’s sense of wonder and excitement!  All activities will be developmentally appropriate. 

Registrations and payments are due by Wednesday, September 27. Our Lunch Bunch/Extended Session charge is $24 per day. *Please note: When you select the day/days, you are registering for the entire month. Classes are limited to 16 students per class.

Those families, with more than one child attending, will receive a 10% discount on the total cost for both children. To receive the discount, when you register online, please choose the “In Person” option for payment. See Pat to get the amount of payment by either check or cash.

Children may attend one or more themed sessions each week/month. Children registered for all Monday through Thursday sessions will receive a discount.

If our school closes, due to inclement weather, on Extended Session days, you will be credited for future sessions.

Warmly,
Vickie
