more fluency and accuracy. Various activities will improve comprehension
through brainstorming, mind mapping and critical thinking. An individual
assessment of the students’ writing will also be completed so that lessons
can target trouble areas. Reading and writing skills will be enriched to pave
the way for future success!
Enjoy making super cool projects or movies about yourself and your
favourite activities! Students will learn to create Prezis, take photos on
Photo Booth to make a video on iMovie, explore safe websites that allow
them to create their own storybook or pictures, and so much more! We will
provide meaningful challenges and exciting experiences for students of all
ages and abilities.

power/hand tools to create your own unique board. Students will choose a
cool board design, cut it out, sand it, design it, paint it and grip tape it. You

left to do is put on the “trucks”. ($45 materials fee)
Young chefs will have the opportunity to create mouth-watering appetizers
and snacks. Students will leave the program with oodles of tasty snack
ideas and be their own “party appetizer planners”. Young chefs will learn
quick snack and munchie ideas and of course be able to sample and taste
everything that they prepare and cook in their kitchens. Students will also
leave the class at the end of the week with a collection of recipes that they
can try at home. ($15 grocery fee)
MATHEMATICS SUCCESS (English) Grades 1–9
Keep the fun in “fundamentals” to build confidence, understanding and
success. Hands-on manipulatives and innovative strategies such as
“Chisenbop” (finger math) will put theory into practice. Students who
had difficulty with units during the school year will receive the necessary
remedial teaching to ensure successful math experiences in future grades.
Enrichment will also be provided by introducing keen students to future
curriculum.

of climbing in a regulated environment. Students will learn climbing skills
and techniques and use new technology with a focus on safety. Harnesses
and ropes with belay partnering, as well as “bouldering” horizontally along
the rock wall will be experienced. Students will develop physical fitness
in a super-charged and electric atmosphere. This is guaranteed to be a
“ROCKING” good time for all levels!
Study/organizational skills will be taught, modeled and reinforced so that
students are able to apply these skills in next year’s courses. Emphasis
will be given on note taking, mind mapping and summarizing main ideas.
General organization tips not featured in most regular courses will be the
focus. Students will learn various strategies that will apply to studying
concepts in ALL subjects.
Students will explore a hands-on “discovery” approach to science through
investigations, experiments, activities and lab experiences (indoor and
outdoor explorations). Invisible magnetism, electron flow, basic chemistry,
electricity and many other interesting projects will be explored. Learn about
science through hands-on interaction in a safe environment and have fun!
Kids of all ages can be great photographers! This is a fun, hands-on,
interactive and creative program where young photographers will explore
their own creativity and self-­‐expression using their own camera. Several
elements of digital photography will be covered – from viewpoint to
framing; subjects from family and faces, to nature and abstract objects.
Photographers will learn to use their creative eye to focus on the world
around them through the lens. Young photographers will also have the
opportunity to use computers and iPhoto (taught by a certified professional
photographer).
