After School Program News
Our Westminster After-School Program (ASP) has been having fun out in the snow! ASP students have been searching for tracks, looking at different trees, building, and playing in the snow with our Outdoor Adventure Club. The students have been having a great time in our Arts & Crafts Club making different animals out of toilet paper rolls. Our Painting Club students really showed us their artistic side by painting beautiful nighttime winter barns. In our Active Games Clubs, the students have been running, playing, and learning different team-building games. We have two Junior leaders from our very own school that have been guiding ASP students around new skills with bracelet making and box building.
On March 7th we will be offering new ASP clubs! We will welcome two more junior club leaders who teach younger kids how to make slime. We will be adding a Sports Club. We will offer a Building Club that will include some carpentry skills. We are pleased to announce that for the first time, Main Street Arts from Saxtons River, VT, will be coming to work with students related to performing arts! In addition to our new clubs, we will continue to have an Arts & Crafts Club and an Active Games Club. The WCS ASP community is very excited about this next session!
If you have questions about the After-School Program at Westminster Center School, please contact Kim Budzik the WCS ASP Site Coordinator, or Sarah Doran, the WNESU Director of After-School Programs.

The Kindergarteners returned to Studio Y just in time to help Matilda Mapletree support her friends, The Gaurdian Owls. Our Kindergarteners, full of creativity and imagination, made beautiful, artistic owls. Best of all, their art owl wings actually moved. Our young students showed such kindness and collaboration on this project. Our Kindergarteners really took flight in helping others.
Stay Tuned for more adventures at Studio Y.
