Balancing knowledge with luck, Numberella allows children of different abilities to play together with an equal chance of winning. Trials show Numberella helps students 'process faster,' and 'think outside the box.'

Ozobot- This program will be starting up during our 3rd week, hopefully.  Until then we will continue to create and have fun.

Skillastics- Mr. Prude is doing a great job in helping make sure our scholars get a little physical activity in their life. Most are having lots of fun doing so.  They’ve been playing dodgeball, basketball, and doing calisthenics.

Kidslit- AfterSchool KidzLit is a reading enrichment program for  that is designed for out-of-school settings. Children hear fiction and nonfiction books read aloud or read books independently and make connections between the stories and their own lives.

Working with partners or in groups, children have opportunities to express their feelings and explore big ideas through discussion, drama, art, movement, and writing. The program promotes literacy growth and thinking skills and supports social and emotional development.

Music-Mr. Prude is helping to create the new music artist by teaching students how to create and edit music.  For those that aren't musically inclined he's teaching them how to play chess.
