Create and Innovate Summer Camp

The first week of summer camp was a blast (in more ways than one!)  Willow Glen Elementary students "blasted" one another with Nerf darts and huge bursts of water in the many battles and challenges they enjoyed during the week. The summer temperatures soared but we stayed cool and refreshed with shaved ice, frozen fruit pops and the abundance of shade provided by sails, huge trees, awnings and an outdoor misting system in our 2,500 square foot yard.

Sorry -I couldn't remove the music so you have to turn down the volume to get rid of it.

St. Timothy's Lutheran School
Schedule TBA

Welcome to the 2015-2016 school year!

I am so excited for Session 2 of Create and Innovate.  I have decided to downsize a little this Fall so I can enjoy more family time while my kids are still interested in it. Thus, I will only be offering Create and Innovate workshops at St. Timothy's and Booksin Elementary until further notice.

SESSION 2 of Create and Innovate will be on Tuesdays, beginning Nov. 10th  – Dec 15th. Start time for 1st-3rd  2:05-3:30 PM - and cost is $180.   Start time for 4th-5th 2:25-3:30 PM - $150 

There is a new format at Booksin this year since 1st - 3rd grade students are released at 2:00 PM while 4th and 5th graders are released at 2:25 PM.  This is PERFECT for Create and Innovate because it allows us extra time to introduce the project and assist the littler kids with getting started.  By the time the 4th and 5th graders arrive, the younger children will be busy working so we can focus on introducing a modified version of the project which will be more challenging for the older kids..

Since the 1st – 3rd grade program includes 20 extra minutes for thorough instruction and extended work time, the session will cost $180 while 4th and 5th grader students will pay $150 for the 6 week workshop.

Registration is now open for Session 2 of Create & Innovate
Christmas Creations & Holiday Celebrations

and will be on Thursdays, 11/12, 11/19, 12/3 & 12/10 from 3:05 - 4:05PM in the cafeteria.  Cost is $100.  Open to K – 5th grade students.
