This fall the After School Adventures program filled The Elisabeth Morrow School with many interesting sights, sounds and smells during our eight weeks of classes. Students were happy, engaged, creative and challenged. Beginning Chess students enjoyed learning the basics of chess while our Intermediate Chess class challenged their classmates in class tournaments. Students were thrilled to participate in hands-on experiments and observations in Mad Science classes while Mrs. Milne’s “Science Alive” class also helped students learn more about our beautiful EMS Campus and lively animals in the Little School Science room. Recipes from the “Simply Delicious” cookbook were mixed together and sampled in our Little School cooking class and fabulous t-shirt fashions were created in the “Fashion Design Stars” class. Sports in Little School and Intramurals in Morrow House kept our students active and moving and our Creative Dance class in Little School even got parents up and moving as part of an end of the session class share. Students also had the opportunity to learn about the Chinese culture and language in our two Chinese language classes. Other classes included “ Magical Mysteries”, “Friday Fun” and “Epic Adventures”. The next session of After School Adventures will begin on February 4, 2013. Class booklets and registration information will be available January 16. We have many new and exciting offerings for our next session. For more information, please contact the Office of Auxiliary Programs at ext. 7150. Thank you to our students and teachers for a great session of After School Adventures!
