Pre-Summer Program Descriptions - Week 1

Early Childhood

Stemtastic In this class we'll dive deep into the deep blue sea where we'll explore the midnight, twilight and photic zones of our oceans. We'll build angler fish, sharks and coral reef habitats. We'll make underwater volcanoes and visit yeti crabs that live in the environments they create. It's going be FIN-tastic!

Happy Feet!  Leap, jump, run, kick, roll, twist and even hula into summer!  We will "travel to Hawaii" and make our own hula dance, put on cowboy hats and create a line dance, and do the "swashbuckle slide" with a pirate's "Arrrrrgh!"  We will swing and sway scarves, like we are painting the air, jump in and out of hula hoops like we're getting reading for the Olympics, and roll and make shapes under a parachute like a ninja.  We will kick off summer with our best moves yet!

Lower School

Multi-Sports This is a great opportunity to build athletic skills, improve your game, and make new friends. Play up to 8 different sports in one week!! You will really enjoy a variety of fun sports and activities such as basketball, soccer, dodgeball and more!

It's going to be JawSOME!!!

Dance & Move! Leap, jump, run, kick, roll, twist and even hula into summer!  Take dances you already know, like the Macarena or the Cha Slide, and turn them upside-down.  Hitch kick into a country line dance, surf and do a hula dance, and spin sports into choreography.  We will kick off summer with our best moves yet!
