    Instructors:
    Chuck Allen, Pre-Primary Physical Education & Experiential Learning / Shannon Lukz, Primary Faculty and Director of the NorthStar Collaborative

    Experience the adventure that all of the girls are raving about! Students love their time in Adventure Girls as they cultivate their resilience through challenging games, outdoor activities, as well as adventure-packed field trips and an overnight camping trip at Butler Campus.

    Research shows many benefits to being exposed to “stress episodes” in building resilience. Adventure Girls not only fills that role but also provides many opportunities for providing humor, which has also been proven to “convey intelligence…and confidence”.

    The leadership and adventure skills developed in primary and middle school can be applied in our multiage Adventure Girls setting. This is a great way for adventurous sixth and seventh graders to sharpen both adventure, survival and leadership skills. The books The Gutsy Girl by Caroline Paul and Strong is the New Pretty by Kate T. Parker are two of the resources used during this semester experience. If you like being strong, courageous, spirited and brave, this is the group for you!

    Pick up on Field Trip days 6:30 or 7:00 pm / no additional cost for field trips.

    Minimum enrollment 8 students / Maximum enrollment 30 students

    For additional information regarding activities in Adventure Girls, contact class instructors Chuck Allen at cAllen@LaurelSchool.org or Shannon Lukz at sLukz@LaurelSchool.org.

  • WEDNESDAYS: Yoga Squirrels [Girls and Boys, Preschool-Grade 3]

    Day: Wednesdays, 3:45-4:30 p.m.
    Dates: October 23-December 4, 2019
    Cost: $70

    Instructor: Yoga Squirrel

    The word Yoga means to yoke, or unite. Specifically, yoga helps practitioners unite mind, body, and spirit. Adults aren’t the only ones that need help with this! Children are at a greater risk of obesity, anxiety, and depression now than ever before. A regular yoga practice tailored to the specific needs of children can enhance child development by teaching healthy exercising habits, stress relieving techniques, and positive thinking. Yoga also improves body awareness, builds self esteem and self respect, and helps children to develop increased focus and concentration. Our kids’ yoga classes emphasize a fun, creative approach to yoga that includes breathing practices, interactive games and activities, music, stress management, and educational activities.

    Minimum enrollment 8 students / Maximum enrollment 25 students
