 New After School Activity Choices

Spring is coming and with it comes new choices for the after school program.  Magic will continue to be offered on Wednesdays for grades K-5, but photography will not return until the Fall.  Please read the descriptions below and take the one question survey to vote for which your child would prefer.  The new class would meet on Mondays.  

Airplane Builders (Mondays, K-5)
Wannabe pilots, you are cleared for take-off! We’ll make the physics of flying simple and fun; you’ll learn how to build all new model helicopters, gliders and even motorized planes! You’ll even go outside to fly your hand-crafted machines and take them home to fly some more. This class is aerodynamically designed to teach STEM concepts through hands-on learning and flying fun. You build it. You fly it. You keep it. Control tower over and out.

Fashion Trends (Mondays , 1-5)
Have an eye for fashion? This spring, stay on-trend with chic pieces designed and created by you! No sewing experience is necessary. We’ll teach you the skills you need—including hand-sewing and decorating—to take your idea from inspiration to sketch to seeing your vision come to life. To top it off, you’ll model your unique designs in a fashion show for friends and family! Design it. Make it. Wear it. Because life is too short to wear boring clothes.

 

***Please vote on which ONE program you would like to see at Aiken in the Spring!
