Calling all 4-6th Graders who love to read and write! This after school club will give students the opportunity to let their imaginations wild on the page. The club will read, write, and workshop (talk about their writing in a constructive and supportive setting), culminating with a finished piece of writing.
The Club will meet Wednesdays starting April 17 – May 29 from 2:15 – 4 pm. Cost is $10/student, which covers snacks and materials (15 spots available.)
If you have questions or would like to register, please contact Season Evans.
DebateAble is offering an after school debate club every Tuesday, 3:15-4:15pm, beginning March 6th through June 5th.
Debate builds kids’ confidence, critical thinking, and public speaking skills. Spring Debate Club includes participation in DebateAble’s Annual Citywide Tournament, an exciting event that gives young debaters the unique opportunity to practice their skills in a real tournament environment. DebateAble is the only elementary program of its kind in the country, making debate fun for kids– no experience required! Students will prepare for the tournament during regular club meetings, engaging in games and other activities that build critical thinking and public speaking skills, then working with fellow debaters to formulate, practice and respond to arguments around this year’s (still top secret!) tournament topic. (The tournament is not a St. Alphonsus School sponsored event but the St. Al’s debate team will participate.)
DebateAble encourages kids to find their own voices and to listen to the voices of others! For more information, visit www.debateablekids.com.
