Chess Club (Tuesdays 8:00 – 9:00 a.m.): Do you love chess? Do you love playing chess with dozens of your friends as you all develop your skills in an environment that’s both educational and fun? You’ve come to the right spot. There are numerous studies supporting a correlation between playing chess and other academic and life achievement skills, but the real reason to join is for the fun of the game and the friendships. SIGN UP NOW!

Chess Tournament Training (Wednesdays 7:45 – 9:00 a.m.): All of the fun of the Chess Club with the added oomph of more learning and more fun. This is the slightly-more-rigorous older sibling of our Chess Club at Floris. Come join us! SIGN UP NOW!

Girls on the Run (Mondays and Wednesdays 8:00 – 9:00 a.m.): Over a period of 10 weeks, girls in 3rd – 6th grade participate in a before-school program like no other. Designed to allow every girl to recognize her inner strength, the Girls on the Run curriculum inspires girls to define their lives on their own terms. Throughout the season, the girls make new friends, build their confidence, and celebrate all that makes them unique. Physical activity is woven into the program to inspire an appreciation of fitness and to build habits that lead to a lifetime of health. At the end of each three month session, the girls participate in a Girls on the Run 5K event. This celebratory, non-competitive event is the culminating experience of the curriculum. This program has already begun. Last registration is open through October 8th. SIGN UP NOW!

Cartooning – Young Rembrandts Grades K-2 (Thursdays 4:15 – 5:15 p.m.): Students learn and develop their ability to draw cartoon imagery, including action, irony and emotional expression of characters. We use stepwise instruction to encourage students to create their own independent versions of our cartoon lessons, with animated characters in humorous settings. Our curriculum is varied and challenging, with new, engaging cartooning lessons every week, and every session. Our goal is to provide students with a fun introduction to cartooning techniques such as exaggeration, caricature and personification, to make playful art of their own. SIGN UP NOW!

Intro to Computer Science and Coding (Tuesdays 4:15 – 5:15 p.m.): Intro to Computer Science and Coding teaches programming logic without the requirement of learning a new language, making it the perfect foundation for any other computer science or technology subject. Students start with hands-on activities that help them learn vital concepts in a tangible way. Then they use our easy drag and drop interface to put their new knowledge into play, to create programs, solve problems and even make games. With the help of our experienced instructors, students will learn functions, variables, conditionals and more in a fun environment. Students will leave the course with their final project and a strong base for future technological learning. SIGN UP NOW!

Minecraft Modding (Wednesdays 4:15 – 5:15 p.m.): Minecraft Modding teaches students important problem-solving and design skills by making changes to the popular multiplayer game itself. Programming fundamentals are reinforced by designing and implementing large scale Minecraft modifications. Our instructors offer individualized attention and mentorship throughout our course, so students will learn at their pace following their personal learning style and interests. Students end their time with us with their mods, which they may add to their personal Minecraft games. SIGN UP NOW!

3D Printing (Thursdays 4:15 – 5:15 p.m.): 3D Printing is a premier class that not only teaches students how to create 3D models, but also teaches them engineering. Because the models will be printed, our instructors teach students what to consider in the construction of the model to produce the best quality print. Students will observe a 3D printer during each lesson to learn proper 3D printing standard and processes, all while creating their own models that will be printed for them. The course ends with students taking home their own accounts so they may continue modeling at home, along with at least four model prints that they designed themselves during their time with us. SIGN UP NOW!

Sports Spectacular (Tuesdays 4:15 – 5:00 p.m.): Do you love to play sports? Then you’ll love Sports Spectacular! Each week we’ll play a different sport or game including: basketball, soccer, flag football, kickball, capture the flag, tag games and MORE! Get moving with games like Bump and Bite, Knights and Dragons, the Numbers Game, and Safe Base. We’ll work on teamwork, sportsmanship and fitness, all while having fun! SIGN UP NOW!

Odyssey of the Mind (Meeting Times TBD): Odyssey of the Mind is an international creativity competition. Teams of 5-7 students (facilitated by teacher or parent coaches) decide upon a challenge problem to develop a long term solution. Some problems are theatrical, some are technical and some are both! Teams write their own plays, create their own scenery and props, and address the challenge as creatively as possible given a limited budget! On competition day teams present their solution and also solve a spontaneous challenge. Read more about it in the flyer. SIGN UP NOW!
