Is there a theme or focus for our 21C Extended Learning Program?

Yes, hands on learning opportunities that engage imagination, promote health and creativity, and build excitement for learning. Our guide in doing this will be the exploration of science topics, the use of technology as a learning and communication tool, the application of engineering concepts, the exploration of the arts, and the principles of math (STEAM). Learning will be active and occur within and beyond the walls of the regular classroom. Collaborating with us to develop this programming are the Montshire and Fairbanks Museums, Catamount Arts, Lyndon State College, Northern Skies Observatory, and the St. Johnsbury Athenaeum.

How will the afternoon be organized?

From dismissal until 3:30PM: students will be settling in, having a healthy snack, and completing homework; from 3:30PM - 4:30PM: students will choose from various clubs, recreational activities, and hands on learning in the arts and sciences. Parent pick up will be at 5:30PM.
