Shelburne Community School’s after-school program for middle school students, Shelburne Kids Activities Together (SKAT), offers some new activities along with some old favorites at new times this session. Classes will be offered Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 3 until 4:15 pm. A late bus will be provided for Monday and Wednesday classes. Students may sign up for more than one class depending on the day each class is offered. Don’t delay classes begin Monday, Sept. 16.
Rugby will be available during the first session. Women’s National and current St. Michael’s College and UVM coach Kevin O’Brien will lead the coaching staff. O’Brien brings many years of expertise and coaching experience to the program. This class will be offered on Fridays, a first for the SKAT program.
A literary offering taught by John Curtis – the former head of Lower School at Buckingham, Brown & Nichols in Cambridge, Mass., The International Schools of Bern and Lausanne, and founder of The Winter Term in Switzerland – is another choice this session. The class will focus on creative writing and having fun with poetry on Mondays and Wednesdays.
Art teacher Amanda Feller will teach a class using mixed mediums with a focus on printmaking. The class will experiment with printing on different surfaces, sewing together pillows, making a set of cards, weaving, painting, and more! The class meets on Wednesdays.
Charles Supernaw will offer the ever-popular Lego Robotics class. New, state-of-the-art EV3 kits have been ordered and will be ready for some hands-on programing! Minecraft will also be offered for the first time. Check the school website for details.
Last but certainly not least, Yearbook will be offered for both sessions as an eighth-grade-only class. The yearbook will include grades K-8. Watch for more information! This class will meet on Mondays, Wednesdays, and as needed throughout both sessions of SKAT.
