Mindful Mornings (Ages 5-9)

Lean into some time for yourself over the busy winter vacation week – for a quiet break, an errand, connecting with friends or family – whatever serves you best. While you enjoy this time each morning, we invite your children to join us for an hour of mindfulness. We’ll practice mindful relaxation exercises, stretch through mindful movement, read some fun tales, and create crafts to take home. Mindfulness gives us all – including our children – time to relax, reboot, and tap into joy and gratitude. 

Winter SAT Prep Intensive 

This class is geared towards students planning to take the SAT exam. In our sessions, we will cover all aspects of this critical college entrance exam. This course focuses on teaching strategies, reviewing important content, and covering test taking techniques. Students will take practice tests sourced directly from the College Board, between class sessions to simulate the actual test. The instructor will provide feedback on the student’s progress in both the math and verbal sections of the SAT. The required text: The Official SAT Study Guide is available for purchase online.
