2019 Spring Enrichment Class Listing

Updated 12/29/18

Spring class signup day is Tuesday, January 8, 2019 @ Farmington Baptist Church in the sanctuary. Due to adding a 4th period and needing more time during signups, we are doing things differently for signup day so please read the signup times below carefully.

Teachers ONLY sign up at 9:00 am.

Everyone else signs up at 1:00 pm. That is 1:00 pm in the afternoon, after lunch. You must be a member of EAGLE to sign your child up for classes.

As much as we love our kids, we know that signups are a lot easier without them in tow! If it is possible for you to leave your children at home or with someone, we encourage you to do so. If not, we will have limited childcare available for those that need it. If you are willing to volunteer to help with childcare during the part of the day that you aren’t signing up, please contact Amy as soon as possible (see contact info below).

Spring classes begin Tuesday, January 22, 2019, and will end on April 2, 2019. We will not have classes during spring break week, March 12, 2019.

Class times are as follows:

  • 1st period (11:00-12:00)
  • 2nd period (12:00-1:00)
  • 3rd period (1:00-2:00)
  • 4th period (2:00-3:00)

Each child will be able to take a maximum of 3 periods. If your child is not in a class, he/she must be with you. We do not have childcare during their off period, and they cannot be roaming the church building or campus without adult supervision. This also applies to teenagers. If your teen drives themselves to classes and needs a place to stay during an off period, he/she will need to sit in the sanctuary during that off period. Your student may bring schoolwork from home to work on during this time or just sit and visit quietly in the sanctuary. They can consider this their study hall time.

As a reminder, these classes are co-op classes, meaning that we all cooperate together to offer these classes for our children. For your child to participate in classes, you must volunteer in some way the day of enrichment classes. Unless there is an extenuating circumstance, the volunteer needs to be a parent. We do welcome teens to help with set up and clean up, and we are very thankful for them because many times they are the ones doing the heavy lifting of moving chairs, tables, etc. However, this does not let the parent off the hook from helping/serving. If you have a valid conflict with volunteering the day of classes, please see Bevin or Amy. Even though “me time” or “a break” always sounds good, during classes is not the time for it. Just to be clear, this is not a school or a drop-off program. Eagle only works when we ALL work – thank you for doing your part!!

Also, your child needs you, the parent, on campus during classes. We need to be able to find you if your child needs something. We recognize that OCCASIONALLY you may need to run an errand during class time. If this is the case, please make sure you have an ADULT that is willing to be and knows that she is responsible for your child while you are gone.

Along this line, we are changing the registration form to include a section for you to add where you will be each period so that we will know where & how to reach you if your child needs you. We will explain this further the day of signups.

Your clients are The Extraordinaires and it’s the job of EAGLE students to design the inventions they require to fit their worlds. Our clients range from a rap star to an evil genius.  With each client, we will learn more about them, their world and their needs. Then we will each individually design the product they desire.  It could be a communications device for a soldier or a drink carrier for a circus acrobat. And we will learn that a good designer always asks lots of questions. Pick a Think Card to guide you through the 3-step design process to Research, Design and Improve. Could your object be made portable? Larger? Could it be made with more sustainable materials? Using the Think Cards helps develop design-thinking skills which are essential in the 21st Century. With over 200 design combinations, you will be able to bring home your studio kit to finish working for more clients once our 10 weeks is up. And no need think you should be a good artist or good reader to participate.  Good design is all about great ideas! Mrs. Stacey will be our guide as we tackle each challenge.  Students will each receive a design station with materials for both in class use and to take home after the semester.
