Enrichment Class Schedule – Fall, 2014
Mondays – 8 weeks

Here in the woodshop we let the students take the lead, designing and building individual or group projects ranging from simple to complex. The results are often unique and always empowering. We teach safe techniques of basic woodworking and let our students’ imaginations soar! It’s fun, challenging, and inspiring.
Tuesdays – 8 Weeks
September 30 – December 2 (No class October 7 and November 11)

Every session we offer a different curriculum introducing exciting new skills and equipment. Classes include, but are not limited to: fun warm-ups, tumbling and acrobatics, juggling and other object manipulations, equilibristics (stilts, circus globe, rola bola, unicycle), cooperative games, and theater sports (physical comedy, improvisation and clowning). We offer a balance of guided learning and self-directed play and each class offers new opportunities for children to get into their bodies and explore their world using physical expression and creativity.
