Class Descriptions

Once Upon a Time
Literature—Caty Douglas (Once)

Once Upon a Time, in a land far, far away lived a teacher who loved fairy tales and wanted to share this love with little children. But, there were wolves and witches trying to keep this teacher from sharing this love. Come join this class to help the prince save the princess and defeat the wolves and witches so the love for fairy tales can be spread! Once the villains have been defeated, we will look at many well-known tales and even some with a twist! By the end we will be ready to put together our own fairy tale with magic and mystery! Come join the land of Happily Ever After with Cinderella, Jack and the Beanstalk, the Three Little Pigs, and others; you will not regret it!

Space Camp
Science—Alex Wakelyn (Space)

Have you ever wondered what is out there when you look up at the twinkling night sky? Well, let’s blast off into space and discover our universe!  Asteroids, comets, planets, moons, and shooting stars!  Astronauts, let’s put on those space suits and climb aboard our rocket ship as we explore outer space!

The Measure of Things
Math—Mary Anne Struthers

Why do we measure? Is accuracy important? What are some of the tools and units we use to measure? Measurements are everywhere! We will learn all about measurements in our measurement labs and do our own experiments to see just how important accuracy is. Come join us and play with math!
