After School Enrichment Classes
Enrollment for Session II of Covenant’s lunchtime enrichment programs is beginning. These programs give children additional curricular and social opportunities in an environment they are already comfortable in as well as creating an extended day for children (particularly great for those children going on to full-day kindergarten the following year).
SESSION II Enrichments (Begins the Week of December 4th, 2017 through March 2nd, 2018 )
**NEW THIS SESSION** ALL CHILDREN ARE TO BE PICKED-UP IN THE FOYER AFTER ENRICHMENTS!
DANCE, DANCE, DANCE!
Kids LOVE to move! This class will be offered on Mondays this session from 11:45-1:15. Our creative dance class is for both boys and girls, offering ample opportunity to hop, run, leap, jump, turn, kick, stretch and dance! We'll improve our flexibility, listening skills, patterning and body awareness while we're rockin' and rollin'. Children will also have the opportunity to eat a parent-provided sack lunch and have time for free play. The cost for this class will be $15.00 per class for a total of $135 for session II (9 weeks). Daily drop-ins are accepted if space allows. **Dance will not meet Jan. 15th and Feb. 19th - CNS Closed due to D65 Closure**
MIX IT UP!
This lunch program will be offered on Fridays from 11:45-1:15. Using a variety of mixed media, children will experience a number of sensory explorations. It will be a little bit cooking, a little bit science, but mostly it will be about having fun! Some of the things they will mix up include: Goop, sculptures, playdough, model magic, shaving cream, the list is limitless! This enrichment may not be best for children with tactile sensitivities or those who do not like to get a little bit messy. Children will have the opportunity to eat a parent-provided sack lunch. Session II of this enrichment will cost $15 per class for a total cost of $150 (10 weeks). No daily drop-ins are accepted. **Mix It Up will not meet Feb. 16th - CNS Closed due to D65 Closure**
NEW! STORYTIME COOKING
This enrichment will extend the day for children from 11:45-2:00 pm and will be offered on Wednesdays this session. Children will experience a fun class that not only encourages reading and math, but will provide opportunities to prepare a menu item that interests them. Children’s books come to life as we create original recipes inspired by the stories, as they chop, taste and explore. Children will also have the opportunity to eat a parent-provided sack lunch. Session II will cost $25 per class for a total cost of $250 (10 weeks). No daily drop-ins are accepted. **Storytime Cooking will not meet Feb. 28th due to the Family Fun activity**
This lunch program will be offered from 11:45-1:15 on Tuesdays to any child in our 3 Day Three’s and multi-age classes. Turtle Tunes is a joyful time for the children to listen to sounds, explore instruments, participate in instrument ensembles and engage in singing games and dances. Instruments will be used in class for exploration, steady beat and improvisation. Songs and music from varied sources both traditional and contemporary will be used in the class. Children will make their own rhythm instruments from time to time so that they can enjoy making their own music at home. Music instruction is a wonderful way to encourage children’s large and small motor skills, their listening and patterning skills, creativity and social interaction. Children will have an opportunity to eat a parent-provided sack lunch. The cost for this professional music instruction is $15 per class. For session II (11 weeks), the cost will be $165. No daily drop-ins are accepted.
LUNCH AND MORE
