S.T.E.M. (Science Technology Engineering Math) Club (Grades 2-5)
Fridays | 8 – 8:40AM
STEM club challenges the idea that math is just arithmetic. By engaging in projects, explorations, games, and math competition problems, children will exercise their creative and analytical minds. Students will have the chance to pick from different math, science, and engineering “stations” where they will work with friends, teachers, and parent volunteers to build, create, and solve. This fall children will make straw gliders, rubber-band harmonicas, and tin foil boats, among other things, as they learn about thinking like and engineer.
Start date: September 23, 2016

Read To Me (Grades JK–5)
Thursdays | 8:10 – 8:40AM
Do you love getting read to? Come and listen to picture books read out loud while you look at their illustrations projected on a screen. Up to 22 students grades JK-5th can come up every Thursday morning from 8:10AM until the first bell rings at 8:40AM. Leave all your stuff neatly outside of the art room, enter in total silence (if you arrive after 8:10AM a story might be in progress), sign in, and sit comfortably, anywhere. We’ll read as many books as the time allows. Like in a library or a movie theater, quiet is of the utmost importance and will be required of all the students who want to join. Start your Thursdays with stories!
