Hi Bay Farm Families,

This Friday, January 24th, is the last day of early bird registration for AEF after school class. After that, the prices go up $10 per class. Several classes are already full and others are nearly there, so don't delay in signing up if you haven't already. Three classes start next week and the rest of the Winter classes start the following week. We want to spotlight some exciting classes being offered at Bay Farm for the very first time:
Winter
STEAM Academy - For grades 1-5: Provides the initial experience of Destination Imagination. After finishing our program, participants [Grade 3 and above] who are interested in the tournament level can form their own team.
Race Car Adventures - For grades 2-6: Students build a 1/32-scale mini 4WD vehicle, then compete against each other weekly in a variety of formats, allowing them to modify their cars for the track set-up.
Firecracker Math - For grades 1-3: Theoretical instructions are combined with practical exercises that employ games, hands-on experiments, magic tricks and puzzles to demonstrate mathematical concepts.
Spring
Pastel Drawing: Pattern & Design- A World Tour - For grades 2-6: Explore multicultural art in our world tour from the colorful doorways of Mexico to the design intricacies of African crafts to Paisley patterns, an ancient design embraced by many cultures, to Asian paper lanterns to a mainstay of Russian architecture – the onion dome.
QuickStart Tennis - For grades K-2 & 3-6: An exciting way to learn tennis. The court, equipment and court dimensions are adapted for children. Even the tennis balls are special!
Survival Science - For grades 2-6: Students learn exactly what to do in an emergency through the team-based study of real-world survival skills. From investigating the utility of tools to working through challenging situations, learners use ingenuity to gain crucial skills such as knot tying, water purification and compass navigation. Bringing STEM to the great outdoors!
