Superstar Tennis Preschool
Superstars tennis will not only focus on the fundamentals of tennis, but also on building life skills, education, balance, and exercise. During this six-week program, students are encouraged to develop individual and team-building skills that will last a lifetime.
Bullet Journaling for Grades 3-8
Welcome to the world of bullet journaling, a place to track memories, doodle and, best of all, stay organized! Say goodbye to boring planners and hello to creativity. The bullet journaling process shows students how to focus on gratitude and the important things in their lives. It will give them an outlet for how to deal with struggles, challenges, and arguments. A bullet journal is a great place to write down goals and hopes and dreams for the future! Successful people write down their goals because they can see and feel the words come to life. Also, they can refer to their journal for inspiration, for encouragement, and for proof that they have endured, succeeded, and mastered these goals.
