BFA teachers offer a number of fee-based, FUN after-school activities. Please see below to read about a few of the options currently available:
It’s time for STEM club! This year, Mrs. Lewicki is offering two after school sessions, one for students in grades 2-4, and another for kids in grades 5 and 6. Both clubs will meet from 4 – 5 p.m. on select Thursdays, to focus on the Engineering Design Process and explore the concepts of structural engineering. Students will experiment with different geometric shapes used in structural designs and determine how design choices affect the height and strength of structures, such as skyscrapers and bridges.
The cost is $75 per club session, and is due the first day via cash or check (made out to Jennifer Lewicki). (There is also a drop in option if your student is only able to come on one of the dates. For drop in classes, $20 per session due on that date.)
Session 1: Thursdays Sept. 12, 19, 26, and Oct. 3; Register students in grades 2-4
Session 2: Thursdays Oct. 24, 31, and Nov. 7, 14; Register students in grades 5 and 6
Please email Mrs. Lewicki with any questions.
