Fall Class Offerings


We are updating our policy and are opening up Fall classes to Kindergarten students as well. We will have a Fall and Winter sessions of classes this year and wanted to allow all students the opportunity to take part. 

 

Speak Easy (1st-5th grades)

Public speaking has been rated the worst fear in adults. Why not conquer that fear as a child when inhibitions are low and learning new skills comes naturally? Our children will be required to make presentations and command an audience as soon as junior high. As they go through higher levels of education presentation skills become the key to success. Through engaging interactive games and fun activities, students will learn to get past their fear, embrace their audience, write and deliver an effective speech, and improvise. Students will be coached, recorded, and critiqued individually. Class will culminate with a speech presentation for family and friends.

Students must be picked up on time and be signed out by an adult. See below for specific dates (no class on half days or holidays).
