We are partnering with the Scrap Exchange for this year's Spring Break Camp! Elementary students will take things apart...every child's dream! Then we will transform pieces back to a new form, a new building, or a new machine. Early Childhood students will explore different materials to build art in all sizes, shapes, and forms! The Scrap Exchange Instructors will work with the children for an hour during the morning between 10 and 11 am. They will be guiding our Early Childhood children on Monday and Tuesday, and then the Elementary children on Wednesday and Thursday. During the afternoon, the children will continue working on their projects if they wish. The rest of the week will be filled with outdoor games and indoor activities with friends. Registrations can be made through the online portal.
Early Childhood and Elementary families: If you need care on March 14-16th, you can sign up for No-School Camp through the parent portal. Class will not be held on the conference days.
