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.

Final Session of the 2014-2015 School Year!

 The 2014-2015 school year has been incredible!  It has been so much fun working with all of the talented, creative, innovative and adventurous kids in our classes!  I continue to be amazed by the fascinating, out-of-the-box thinking that comes from your children's untethered minds when giving the chance to solve problems, design solutions and create art without restrictions.  I feel a sense of relief knowing that these will be the minds of the future resolving the challenges we will undoubtedly face.

Our last sessions of the year will begin in the next few weeks; 5/22 for Booksin and 5/27 for River Glen. St. Timothy's has a minimum day c and I class on April 22nd from 12 - 3PM.  Please see the right side column for more information.

Your kids can enjoy Create and Innovate at summer camp!  This summer I will be teaching C and I in week long sessions at STLC summer camp. Each session runs from 9:00 - 12:00 PM and cost is just $95 / week.

Each class I offer is a Create and Innovate structured class but with a specific theme.  For example, the class may be called Arts and Crafts, but this will be done the Create and Innovate way! The subjects are as follows:
  • June 15-19 - Superhero Kids
  • July 6-10 - Carnival Fun
  • July 13-17 - Lego Mania
  • July 27-31 - Spy School
  • August 3-7 - Arts & Crafts
  • August 10-14 - Crazy Cooking
