  • Tiny Chefs: Superhero Adventures*

    Does Spiderman like Make-your-Own Spider Web Pizza best? Does The Hulk like our Smashing Mac and Cheese with Broccoli because it has green in it? Will Iron Man share some Captain America’s Apple Pie? After students have spent several weeks creating heroic menus, they will design their own superhero and decide what their favorite food will be. Come join us for some superhero culinary adventures! $420

    Note: This class is nut-free. For questions or concerns about other dietary restrictions or food allergies, contact Emily Hamberger.
  • Spanish Club: Beginner*

    The advantages of learning multiple languages are countless: enhanced reading comprehension and writing skills, more precise grammar skills, appreciation for other cultures, and excitement about travel, to name a few. Learning a new language can also be daunting, and so it’s important to start while we are young – and to make it fun! Spanish club will incorporate games, music, short videos, stories, dance, and cultural education. Bienvenidos! $380
    Limit: 7
  • Spanish Club: Intermediate/Advanced*

    This club is geared towards students who already have some grasp of the Spanish language. The teacher is a native Spanish speaker and will conduct the entirety of the class in Spanish. Students will play games, do art projects, role-play, even cook snacks – all while communicating in Spanish to the best of their abilities. $380

Our students learn about how these animals live in the wild, why being a good steward of the earth is so important, about self-control, and why animals of our earth are so critical to everyone’s future. $525
  • Sculpture Squad: Winter Wonderland

    Sometimes there is just nothing more satisfying than building something with your own two hands – be it out of clay, wood, plastic, metal, paper, Styrofoam, rubber, or even paperclips.

  • Crime Mystery Club: The Case of the Missing Millionaire*

These forensic science activities absorb students from the start and keep them intensely involved throughout. The many crime-lab procedures include thread tests, powder tests, DNA comparison, chromatography, and fingerprinting. We will combine fun and excitement with careful experimentation, logical thinking, and real-life connections to forensic science. As the fascinating connections between science and detective work become clear, students will absorb processes that will be useful in all disciplines. $455

    (Elementary, Intermediate)
    Yoga is a great way to help students stretch their imaginations, learn how to relax, and engage in physical play without the competition. Aymi Ayala has been teaching yoga outside of Lab for years, and is currently teaching a morning yoga class for our Lab teachers! She will incorporate simple poses such as “sunrise,” “butterfly,” and “tree,” and slowly build up to more challenging poses using music, images, and even yoga-based games. So come on and “find your center” before the craziness of the weekend! $385

    (Elementary, Intermediate, Junior High)
    Master Chess Player David Bennett will join us to strategize and play this classic game.

Students will have the chance to play against students of different ages, and to learn about game etiquette and communication. David is adept at teaching students of varying skillsets and levels of experience at the same time; come join us as a “rook-y” or a “king” and let’s play! $420
