October gave a party;
The leaves by hundreds came,—
The Ashes, Oaks, and Maples,
And leaves of every name.
The sunshine spread a carpet,
And every thing was grand;
Miss Weather led the dancing;
Professor Wind, the band….
The sight was like a rainbow
New-fallen from the sky….
~George Cooper, “October’s Party”

and movements for a variety of sports like baseball, soccer,
basketball and hockey!
2. Color Me Healthy – This program is designed to teach children about how to take
care of their bodies by eating healthy and staying active!
3. Art History – This program teaches your child about an Artist and allows them
to try to replica their work by using a variety of art materials
and techniques!
4. Makin Music – Makin’ Music offers the children a variety of songs and movements that
match the seasons and help teach rhythm and tempo!
5. Geography – This introduces the world to your child and helps them learn about
different places and cultures in Europe and Asia!

We are looking forward to watching your children learn these enrichment programs with us and their friends!
