If we don't need both make up days for regular classes, Nov. 22nd will be a performance and workshop day, with workshops scheduled around the performances so that students can perform, see peer performances, attend workshops, and celebrate end of term with their friends.

Indoor classes will be masked. Masks are not required for most outdoor classes. Some outdoor classes will move inside in the event of bad weather and some will use the make up days. Please see our Covid Guidelines for additional information.

In this class, we’ll use drawing, painting, and collage to build mythical animal sculptures. First we’ll draw our creatures by using a schematic of shapes like triangles, circles, squares.

Cezanne famously said that all nature could be seen in terms of basic shapes and forms. We'll practice seeing those shapes as we study observational drawing, forms in perspective, and combining forms for realistic drawing. During the second half of the class, we'll use Van Gogh's best known paintings, Sunflowers and Starry Night, to learn about showing textures with impasto method of painting, designing patterns with varied brushstrokes, and using color temperature and value to show relative distances in aerial perspective. Students will have an opportunity to display artwork from this class in our end of term art show.

Trial by Jury
GUILTY! Or maybe innocent? That's what we all think about when we hear about trials, juries, or anything related to the court system, right? The judicial branch of our government encompasses all of this and so much more. In many cases, trials do not involve someone who has been arrested, but instead deal with civil issues such as property disputes. Sometimes, a case makes it all the way to the Supreme Court, paving the way for our constitution to change, such as granting women the right to vote. In this class, we'll examine real cases (and a few fictional ones), determine the outcome of each, and compare our verdicts with the actual results.
Notes: Masks are not required unless social distancing cannot be maintained. This class will be held outdoors, weather permitting. In the event of inclement weather, we'll use a classroom inside.

Dino Dig
Dinosaurs lived millions of years ago, walking an Earth much different from the one we call home. Many scientists say they're extinct, but are they really? For several years, scientists thought the reptiles of today evolved dinosaurs. Now we think dinosaurs are the ancestors of birds - complete with feathers! Scientists are the detectives of the natural world. As we uncover new evidence, our scientific knowledge changes. In this class, we'll observe our living dinosaurs, excavate clues using our own shovels and brushes, make our own fossils, and much more!

Teen Writing Workshop: Bad Writing
"Good writing is bad writing that was rewritten," writes scientist Marc Raibert. "The only way I can get anything written at all is to write really, really shitty first drafts," says writer Anne Lamott. This writing workshop for teens will focus on writing as a process. To get to the good stuff, we will first write the bad stuff. Clumsy phrasing, incomplete thoughts, dangling modifiers, run-ons, purple prose, total garbage--bring it! In-class activities will include free-writing, writing from prompts, and analysis of different types of prose (expository, persuasive, academic, creative--fiction and non-fiction). Students will also learn how to give and receive constructive feedback. In addition to short writing and reading assignments, each student will complete one writing project of their choosing. This could be an essay, a piece of memoir, a short story, a game, film, or book review, a news article, a diatribe, the backstory for a D&D character, or a manifesto. Whether you love to write or hate it with a soul-ravaging passion, this course will help you embrace bad writing and turn it into good writing.
Notes: Students should bring a laptop or a notebook and pen to class and be prepared to write. Students will need access to Google Classroom for assignments. Class is outdoors. In the event of bad weather, class with be cancelled and rescheduled on the make up day.

Fairy Tale French: Le petit Chaperon rouge
Learn French while making your film debut! In this elementary-level French class, we will prepare a performance of the French fairy tale "Le petit Chaperon rouge" (Little Red Riding Hood) and film it over Zoom. New and returning French students are welcome. In addition to speaking and listening, students will practice their reading skills and I will incorporate some light grammar lessons. We will spend roughly half of our time reviewing basic French (greetings, saying your name, talking about likes and dislikes, talking about age, talking about and asking for food) and the other half preparing our performance. Students will also have the opportunity to rewrite the story and the script collectively. Will Le Petit Chaperon rouge fall for the wolf's ruse? What does she have in her basket? Who will save the day? There will be speaking and non-speaking roles, plus opportunities to help with props and costumes. I will do my best to accommodate students who prefer to not appear on film. Come join me in this fun, project-based way to learn French. As we say in French: Venez nombreux!
Notes: Parents will need to give the instructor permission to film portions of the classes. The final edited film will be shared privately via YouTube. No personally identifying information will be shared online. This class will meet for 40 minutes on Zoom twice a week.

Letter-Sound Detectives!
Students put on their detective hats! They will use their sleuthing skills to find common letter patterns that match given sound targets. By the end of this course, students will understand why the common -ed ending sometimes sounds like "t" at the end of words vs. "d" at the end of words (hopped vs. hummed). They will also understand why some consonants are doubled in the middle of two syllable words while others are not (ex. hoping vs. hopping). These and other common sound-letter patterns will be explained, practiced, and solved by our sound detectives; helping them become improved readers and spellers.
Notes:
Prerequisites: Students must be able rhyme. Though not required, it is preferred that students can blend and segment CVC (ex. bat), CCVC (ex. spin), and CVCC (list) words. Students should also be able clap/tap/identify the number of syllables within 2 and 3 syllable words. It is best if the child can navigate Zoom and basic computer functions relatively independantly.
