Roy Cloud Enrichment Programs Fall 2017

The Roy Cloud PTO is proud to offer an exciting assortment of high quality Enrichment Programs for Fall 2017.

Enrichment Program Overview

All classes are held on the Roy Cloud campus where students are able to stay in a safe and enriching environment, while also continuing to build community through sharing a common interest. For scheduling flexibility, students attending Workshop or Kids Corner after school can also attend after-school enrichment classes and return to Workshop or Kids Corner when the class is over.

Some of our classes also offer supervision for k-2 students when classes begin on or after 2:50. Please see visit the website above for class descriptions. These classes are offered by invidual vendors. All payments and responsiblities for attendance, questions, and other issues can be directed at the individual vendors by clicking the link to their websites.

Other questions regarding the PTO Enrichment Program can be sent to the PTO Enrichment Co-ordinators Mary-Elizabeth Redner or Tiffany Gonzales.

Young Rembrandts – Our elementary-age curriculum is designed to teach basic to advanced drawing skills, art techniques and vocabulary. We believe that drawing is the bedrock skill required for future artistic success. We give them skills to express their creativity, and believe that all children can – and should – learn to draw. You’ll see increased art abilities, learning skills, self-confidence and self-esteem. Our budding artists will have the opportunity to flex their creative muscle as they take on fun, artistic challenges like our Jack Russell Terrier and even More Emojis in the month of January. February brings fun and culture into the classroom as our students’ learn about masquerade and dive into the mind of master artist Romero Britto. And in the month of March, get ready for some dinosaur-sized excitement as your elementary student recreates the ferocious T-Rex Young Rembrandts style!

Science and Technology Classes

More Minecraft Adventures – LET’S TAKE WHAT KIDS LOVE ABOUT MINECRAFT AND WEAVE IN LEARNING, COLLABORATION, AND TEAMWORK. Whether your student is new to Minecraft — or has taken other Sparkiverse Minecraft classes – they will absolutely love this class. In Minecraft Adventures, we explore MinecraftEdu with guided activities and learning adventures. Sparkiverse emphasizes building and exploration, encouraging students to put their Minecraft skills to creative use. As part of this class, teams of students create replicas to contribute back to the thousands of students and teachers around the globe that use MinecraftEdu. For example, one team of students may decide to create a model of the Golden Gate Bridge. Students are challenged to explore different materials and power sources. Students can use materials like Redstone to build electrical circuits and mechanisms inside their replica or world.

Let’s bring teamwork and imagination to Minecraft and watch the creative juices flow!

Creativity and Circuits – WE’VE GOT A LAB FULL OF ROBOTS WHO KEEP ASKING TO GET TO KNOW OUR YOUNGER STUDENTS! So, we’ve designed a class specifically for our younger students in grades 1-3.

It’s a great way to continue the hands-on activities from our circuits classes … or a great way to get started with robots and coding. In this Starter Lab, we introduce students to programming principles by using our codable robots. And we roll in a lot of creative fun – like using our Thymio robots to imitate animals and our Dash robots to compete in obstacle course races. It’s wonderful mix of robots, coding, and creativity that both girls and boys love. This class has NO prerequisite, so it’s a wonderful class for students new to Sparkiverse or previous students in any of our circuits classes.
