The first drop doesn’t scare him.

Make sure Algebra doesn’t either. Confidence is the ultimate school supply. Whether your child is at the head of the class or needs a little help, Kumon provides the perfect foundation for the coming school year. Children work independently on math and reading programs designed just for them, gaining confidence that carries beyond the classroom. Now’s the time for Kumon.

Hello Ann Arbor Public Schools Community! It is a great day in Ann Arbor Public Schools as we celebrate Ann Arbor Rec & Ed and the gift this program is for our students and families in Ann Arbor! AAPS is fortunate to have such a robust Rec & Ed department in this era of decreased funding, and our Ann Arbor Rec & Ed division is an overwhelming success story (they topped 5,000 camp registrations during Summer, 2014). I am so proud of the impressive quality and variety of programming that Rec & Ed offers. Rec & Ed, for so many Ann Arbor families, becomes the ‘third place’ within the community – a place where students and families connect, explore new learning, have fun, extend their thinking, and build new friendships with peers from other schools. Rec & Ed is all about the experience – it’s about engagement and leveraging a ‘peak’ learning experience that truly adds value and creates special memories for students. There are always high levels of excitement when I visit Rec & Ed classrooms - students are proud of the artwork they create, and they can’t wait to show off the project they are building or share their next steps. The Rec & Ed experience extends beyond traditional classroom to hands-on, real-time learning that grows our students as ‘whole learners.’

You may have noticed that over the past year, Rec & Ed has expanded its STEAM offerings. Students of different ages are able to explore new ideas in Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math, solve problems and, of course, have fun together without having a test at the end. I observed this first hand at the LEGO summer camp I visited in late July – what fun! The children in the camp loved explaining their design process and showing off their interesting creations. Levels of engagement were high, and several students shared, “I am coming back to this camp next summer!” The Rec & Ed staff has worked hard to offer new opportunities for STEAM this fall. See pages 18-19 for brand new LEGO classes, computer programming, robotics, and other science classes. Ann Arbor Rec & Ed is a gift to our community – and to each of us. Sincerely,

Jeanice K. Swift

The real secret to success is that children already love to draw - we just take their love a little further.

The Power of Drawing

FEE: $95

Grades K-5. With its special kid-tested methodology and a foundation of visual skills, The Power of Drawing returns to Ann Arbor with an all new curriculum and new professional design markers. Students experience increased levels of mastery and confidence by drawing topics that they can relate to and learn from. This fall, your child creates caricature cartoons (learning about facial expression and body position), a pirate ship, a macaw parrot and a pizza. As children draw, their eyes are trained to observe, see and make creative choices and the brain is developing critical and cognitive thinking skills. Our classes are designed to build on one another with our 6-year tiered methodology, taking your child from doodles to confidence-boosting achievements. Instructors: Young Rembrandts Foundation of Creative Vision Staff. 5 weeks. LOCATION
