Spring Clubs are Springing Up! Bounce into Spring at HMS!

It’s no cruel April Fools’ Joke — spring is officially here in Northeast Ohio. The birds are chirping, the days are longer, and the Browns are being hailed by some as Super Bowl contenders (also, not an April Fools’ Joke). This spring, clubs will begin the first day back from Spring Break on April 1st (no joke, I promise) and will run through Friday, May 24, the Friday right before Memorial Day Weekend, which marks the beginning of the last week of school — where did the time go? Then, it is time to enroll for HudsonMontessori.org/Summer! It is our hope that your children find these activities enriching because they continue to reinforce the intrinsic values of a Montessoriinspired education.

Please feel free to contact me at anytime as we look forward to having a fun and enriching spring ahead! Best, Tim McQuait Auxiliary Programs Coordinator

Module: Gold Medal Engineers Behind every athlete, there are many hours of practice, dedicated coaches and innovative equipment that contribute to their success. In sporting competitions, it is often a single point or fraction of a second between the winner and the loser. Top athletes have to make sure that they have the best equipment possible, and sports engineers are in charge of designing this equipment. Everything from hockey pads to gymnastics floors and baseball bats to ice skates has been improved over the years. In this Engineering Club module, we will learn about the work sports engineers do to both protect athletes and improve their performance at all levels of competition. We will study muscles and how they enable up to do cheerleading flips and kick soccer balls. We will also experiment and design with different padding like scientists have done in order to create safer football helmets. Join the team!
