The Young Makers’ Club

Do you have a million ideas? Do you like to work with your hands?  Do you like to program robots?  Or paint pictures? Or write stories? Or engineer Rube Goldberg machines?  This is a club for makers of all kinds.  Come to explore, experiment, create, and make!

Day: Monday

Instructor: Ms. O’

Time: 3:30-5:00

Ultimate Frisbee Club

Come join The Grayson School’s Ultimate Frisbee Club!  Ultimate Frisbee is a fast-paced, team-oriented game that builds teamwork, fine motor skill, and hand-eye coordination. Most importantly, it is SO MUCH FUN.  Dr. Matt will be leading this Club, which will focus on building the core skills of Frisbee, including the basic throws, catching passes, and increasing accuracy.  We will be playing Ultimate just between Grayson students for this year, with the hopes of building towards playing Frisbee Golf at the end of the Spring.  In the future, we may be able to play with/against other schools!  To join, the students will need their own frisbee (175g), and must wear. Parent volunteers/players are welcome!

Day: Tuesday & Thursday

Instructor: Dr. Matt

Time: 3:00-4:30

Grades: 3rd and up

 

Cartooning

What runs from ear-to-ear and is contagious? Give up? It’s the SMILE your child will have as they get to explore the fun, artistic world of Young Rembrandts cartooning! Your child will wear the biggest smile as they laugh and learn while drawing our fun superhero expressions lesson in the month of March. Then in April, our students will jump for joy and spring into action with our heroic unlikely heroes lesson. And there’s no better way to prepare for spring than with our bird vs. worm drawing sequence. These and many more hilarious and entertaining lessons wait. Sign up today!
