It’s hard to believe we are only six weeks in to the new school year. We do tend follow an academic year since all of our programs have an educational component. So many things have happen since we ended our Summer Camp program and closed for a few weeks to spruce up both LIFE Center locations. After a few fresh coats of paint and some major cleaning thanks to our parents and staff we are back in the swing of things.
The children in the After School Program are hard at work. Some new faces have joined the staff as well as the student body. It hasn’t been all work however; Kindergarten and First grade had a special visit from School Superintendent, Sr. Christopher Clouet. He dropped by to read to them and brought along his guitar for an impromptu ‘sing-a-long’.
Second and third grade had the chance to dance thanks to our friends at Sleepy Hollow Performing Artists. Each class experienced what goes in to learning a dance routine and a bit about the hard work that goes into putting on a performance.
October 10th was a half day of school so we decided to do something different. The entire After School program went apple picking-all 120 of us! Loaded on to two buses we headed off for a fun afternoon.
The other Center Programs are well underway as well. A new group joined Parents & Tots; we have over 20 preschoolers in this year’s group.
Our adult learners are settling into their English Classes.
We’ve made a change to our teen program, Friday Night Fever. This year sixth graders are included so we hope this will add a new dimension and be a fun experience for all.
