After School Clubs

Spring Clubs

In the springtime, we offer a wide array of after-school clubs.  In our ever-popular Blacksmithing Club, students bend, forge, punch and draw metal into art and tools. Participants in our Archery Club learn how to safely handle and operate a bow and arrow. For our junior golfers out there we offer a Golf Club to help build the foundations of play. In Reading Club students will work on essential skills like spelling, sight word recognition, and reading fluency through games and collaborative activities. Lastly, we offer our Spanish Club with acclaimed instructor Victor Zevallos.

Blacksmithing Club

Participants will gain an appreciation for the skills, physical demands and challenges blacksmiths and metal workers face in the shop. Each class will involve heating steel pieces to workable temperatures, then using anvils, hammers and smaller tools to bend, forge, punch and draw these pieces into art and tools. Participants will walk away with finished products like bottle openers, marshmallow skewers. Return smiths will create more elaborate metal works.
