Dear Brooklyn Collaborative Studies Families,
What a wonderful opportunity for students to learn a new skill, make new friends, discover a passion, participate in a safe and supportive environment, promote their physical health, have fun, and so much more!!
For our Lower Grades students (6-8), we are delighted to have partnered with the YWCA NYC for the past 9 years to bring students a rich variety of clubs offerings, including cooking, film, podcasting, dance, STEM, chess/legos, art, and soccer, academic support, workshops, and field trips. Please email Director Ashley (firstname.lastname@example.org) or stop by Office 405 for more information or to sign. Your child can stay for one day or all five days.
For our Upper Grades (9-12), we are excited by our new partnership with Inspiring Minds NYC to offer students boxing, music, cooking, film, art, cosmetology, SAT Prep, drumming, and drama. Please email Director Fox (email@example.com) or stop by Office 410 for more information or to sign up. You can stay for one day or all days. Students can build their resume for college and career with extracurricular activities!
YWCA NYC - LOWER GRADES (Grades 6-8)
Students are engaged in an interdisciplinary STEM and Art project called Skeleton Hand. They took a dive into the skeletal system, combining science with art. Students traced their hands, added see-through bones to their picture, and made their own skeleton hand.

INSPIRING MINDS NYC - UPPER GRADES (9-12)
Students made pop out pictures to represent each club.
Students learned how to throw a proper jab and a proper cross jab. They also practiced how to target the body and test their power. Students kicked off class with a quick warm up by jump roping.
Students filmed a short movie on Iphone.
Students learn about face, eyes, and lip shapes. They use this knowledge and apply it to mannequin heads.
Students make a variety of dishes, including fish and chips--as we see here.
SAT Prep Club
Students do many fun activities to help improve their understanding of math. They play games and go over everything that might be confusing. There is no pressure to get everything right.
