All-School End-of-the-Year Party will be Friday, June 17 from 11:30-2 at Commons Beach

Kindergarten-3rd grade will have:

Lego Engineering with Heather Maloy of Bricks for Brains

Art with Alissa Morganti and Sally Osborn

PE with Denise Parker

Mountain Biking with Kim and John Percy

Improv with Kidscape Productions

4th grade will have more intensive study with two main courses:

Outdoor Ed/Native American studies with Eli Miller (including hiking, field trips, leather work, local history, outdoor experiences)

Acting with Kidscape Productions (Improv, as well as script, scene and character study, with performance at the end of session)

The kids will have a bit of mountain biking and PE as well, but the main focus will be the core two courses

5th and 6th will have Outdoor Ed at Squaw Valley Adventure Center with Jesse Desens and his instructors. They will focus on team building, geology, botany, outdoor ed, environmental studies, survival skills,art, PE and more.

Families with siblings attending the two sites may bring kids earlier or pick up later at Rideout (8:30-9 and 2-2:30 supervised playground time). We would also like to help families to carpool from Squaw or Rideout to help with logistics. This will be such a cool opportunity for the older Creekside students- we hope that this change in location will be a great experience for them and worth any hardship in transportation!

Please sign up by paying at school or via the creeksidepto.org site. Note your students name and grade on check or online when paying.

If you are interested in helping every week, your child can attend the classes for free! We will need help with 5th and 6th grade, esp with heading out into the woods. Having a consistent helper each week is really valuable, if you are able to do commit! As always, we need and love having you come and help out just for a day, half day or even lunch time on any Friday!

Please contact Alicia with any questions or comments, or if you would like to sign up to be a class helper. ahen38@hotmail.com. Also, I am retiring from Enrichment Coordinator after this session! Please contact me or someone on PTO board if you would like to be the next Enrichment Coordinator. Thank you to Jesse Desens and Alyson Schreiber for assisting in creating the new outdoor program for 5th and 6th. Let’s have a great spring session of enrichment classes!– Alicia
