Hello After School families!

This past month we have been enjoying our time together through games and play. Recently, we switched groups; Ms. Phoebe has become the group leader of the K-1 group, and Ms. Lauren has become the group leader of the second grade group. Both groups are adjusting well to the transition.

Lately, more time has been spent inside. However, we are looking forward to the sun being out longer and enjoying more time outside in the coming weeks/months. In February, we began weekly science clubs on Tuesdays at 4 p.m. A couple of UW students have led this club on-site featuring projects revolving around STEAM and children can participate if they are interested!

We are looking forward to our Family Night that will be held in April with a theme of game night! If you enjoy any games with your family that you would like to share, please feel free to email me at plister@wisconsinyouthcompany.org so we could possibly incorporate them at our Family Game Night.

Thank you!

Phoebe
