Acting Up With Drama Kids

FALL Calling all Actors-To-Be! Our classes are the fun, no pressure way to find out if theater is for you! Whether you’re a natural ham or a little shy, we’ll help you build confidence. Every week we will create new scenes and improvisations where you use your imagination and learn how to act. We love silly faces, funny gags and drama kids of all kinds. At the end, parents will come and see the scenes you voted as your favorite!

Astounding Drawings/ Cartoons

FALL, WINTER, SPRING We’ll capture seasonal colors and more in our fabulous drawings. Our drawing practice will capture the entire spectrum of colors in very stylized drawings. We provide art instruction in a safe, non-judging space where our instructors encourage and support each student in their artistic learning. All this and more await your artist in a Young Rembrandts classroom!

Chess Club

FALL, WINTER, SPRING A wide variety of chess skills will be taught and students will participate in competitive matches within the club. New and returning students are welcome!

Drama Kids Showcase

WINTER Drama Kids use the winter to polish their acts. We will create a large group scene, an amazing verbal showcase and plenty of scenes for pairs and small groups to present to parents at the end. Our instructors work with each student to build their confidence and show off their talents in the best way possible! Shy or dramatic, we help every student shine!

Fun PE Games at Concord

FALL Play a game before school starts. You’ll develop coordination and flexibility as you play games like Capture the Flag, Busy Bee, floor hockey, basketball, and tag. We will meet in the MPR (lower gym) at Concord Elementary. Mrs. Michelle Darr is a PE teacher at Concord Elementary and loves to see kids moving daily!

Intramural Floor Hockey

WINTER Teams will be formed and schedules will be posted outside the upper gym at Concord. Games will be 10 minutes in length. At the end of the regular season play, the two teams with the best record will play in the “championship” game - winners from this game will play Concord staff. Michelle Darr is a PE teacher at Concord Elementary who loves to get kids moving every day.

Fantastic Forces

WINTER Come along on a Mad Science tour de force! Feel angular momentum move you, and investigate inertia in action. Observe how the forces of flight affect airplane performance and use air pressure to levitate ping pong balls! Learn about structural engineering when you build a bridge, and electrical engineering as you build circuits. Discover the forces required to shape a gemstone and how to use density to clean up an oil spill.

Learning Spanish: Introduction Levels I/II, Levels III/IV,V/VI and Advanced I, II FALL, WINTER, SPRING Levels I/II and III/IV are for students with little or no previous Spanish experience.
