In order to accommodate more students, Imagination Club will be moving from after school to during school! So many students have commitments after school, trouble organizing rides, and brothers and sisters who have commitments. Therefore, we've made a change!
Currently, Imagination Club takes place on Tuesdays and Thursdays until 4:30. Starting after Spring Break, we will be moving Imagination Club to a two hour block of time on Tuesdays from 11:05-1:05. The first hour, everyone in class will participate. If they are having fun and wish to continue the activity, they can eat their lunch in class and keep going until Math class starts. Those who prefer to eat lunch in the cafeteria are encouraged to go eat with their friends from other classes! Since the weather is warming up, I would imagine some may choose to go out for recess as well!
Any parents who wish to remain involved are still welcome to come and help out! The format of the activities might look a little different, but having extra adults in the room can only help!!!
If you have any questions, please ask! Thanks!
