After School Winter & Spring Program

Our After School Program ON-LINE or ON-SITE Options are fun, engaging classes & clubs that will be more than resources to read or activities to try on your own, but real time with teachers who are excited to share their passions and expertise in a new way.  Thank you for jumping into our After School community as we meet the challenges of this transformational year! 
We have teachers offering classes On-Line for those who wish to connect as we have been this year, while some other teachers are willing to meet in person with limited numbers, required mask wearing, and safe distancing both outside and in our building. Teachers offering in-person classes will be keeping in close communication regarding any changes which might occur.
Our schedule is different, cost is reduced, and there are fewer offerings available, however we still hope to connect and explore, to try some new activities, or have a place to keep some favorite arts & activities alive and available. See the list below for more details, and sign up to register here:
"Creativity involves breaking out of established patterns in order to
look at things in a different way." 
Edward de Bono  
Create new, interesting art pieces to keep or give as gifts! By the time we are starting, we hope to be meeting In-person/On-site, if it is safe, though notification about online or In-person decision is pending. Enjoy your favorite dance music while we experiment and practice working with a number of different mediums, making fabulous art. Painting, journaling, jewelry-making, clay, print-making, felting and more are all on the list this spring.

On Tuesdays OR Wednesday, Ms Holly will be offering a selection of fun Radio Plays depending upon the term. See descriptions of each play below. These plays will be worked on and rehearsed in the Commons with a final Radio Play that gets recorded so it is available to friends and family to keep!
Aunt Lottie's LeftOver Cafe  (Term 3)  full cast
A comedic radio play commercial that tackles family mealtime. When a typical family can’t decide where to go for dinner, they are introduced to a very unusual restaurant. Aunt Lottie’s Leftover Café doesn’t actually cook their own food, but sends their “chefs” around town collecting the leftovers from the kitchens of more “fine dining” establishments.
Mad Tea Party  (Term 3)  full cast
This radio play was adapted from the tea party scene in Lewis Carroll’s ‘Alice in Wonderland’. It offers students a fun chance to play some of the characters in ‘Alice in Wonderland’ without performing the entire play.
Treasure Island  (Term 4)

Treasure Island, by Robert Louis Stevenson, is a classic tale of young Jim Hawkins who finds a map of a pirate treasure island in the mid-1700's. He and his compatriots find the island, overcome a crew of mutinous pirates and return to England with the treasure! This radio play adaptation stays true to the original story/dialogue and gives young performers an opportunity to explore this theatrical style!

The exceptional CPM Math program is featured in our daily classrooms, as it will be in this tutoring session with either our amazing Math teacher at SLArts, Norma Iglesias, as well as former SLArts student, now UofU student, Andrew Ferdon. Both have been offering extra assistance in our Math Tutorial After School classes in prior years, and are excited to assist students with their growth mindset while developing strategies to understand math concepts and solve mathematical problems. Whether brushing up on concepts from last year, gaining proficiency for current curriculum, or going into more depth for something coming up, working in either small groups or one-on-one via ZOOM provides that extra piece of assistance.
