Programs for Grades K-6
Regular Programs 2017-2018
NEW! Building Blocks Lego Club
Children age 5 and up with a caregiver
Imagine, create, and build anything you can dream of with LEGO. We have all the pieces you could need! All children under age 8 must be accompanied by a caregiver.
Paws to Read (Registration required)
Second Thursday of every month
Children in grades 2-6 are invited to come and meet special therapy dogs once a month to practice their reading with a furry friend. Each child is given a specific 15-minute time slot for a “one on one” with their reading dog. Children must be able to read by themselves. This program is not for tutoring or becoming comfortable with dogs, rather, it is a chance for children to become more confident readers. Caregivers may remain in the building but are asked to remain outside the reading area. Sponsored by Therapy Dogs International. *Registration will open online one month prior to the event. You will be notified of your time slot via email.
Art Adventures (Registration required)
Fourth Monday of every month
Join us for Art Adventures, an interactive visual arts program that focuses on a particular artist or style of art. Children will learn about the artist or style and then have the opportunity to create a piece based on what they learned. Children do not need to have any special artistic ability, just a desire to learn and create! Sponsored by Coordinated Family and Community Engagement Program.
