St. Sava's new Learning Center is hosting an Enrichment Program for Pre-Schoolers, an extension of our Sunday School. The facility has bright new classrooms and a kitchenette, and is supervised by Lela Damnjanovich, experienced in early childhood education. Also volunteering their talents are Darlene Sever and Ljubica Popovich. Parents, grandparents, or caretakers are encouraged to participate in this classroom setting. Classes are well organized and include music, story time, arts & crafts, and indoor & outdoor activities. Children are encouraged to participate, share, and socialize, and they'll learn something too. It's never too late to join these 10 week sessions: Friday morning classes from 9:30 am to 11:30 am. More classes will be added in the future as the need grows. For additional information call (219) 736-9191 or email email@example.com. (Click photo to enlarge)
RIGHT START ENRICHMENT PROGRAM
Dear Parents (and Grandparents),
This fall, St. Sava Serbian Orthodox Church is offering a unique opportunity to its members and community parents through its Right Start Enrichment Program. While a structured school year is filled with course studies and formal learning, the Right Start Enrichment Program is geared toward discovering individual learning pursuits of your toddler and pre-schooler through fun and innovative classes.
Some of the classes offered this Fall include arts and crafts, reading and music, languages and sports. These classes allow kids to spend substantial time having fun, making new friends and exploring their interests. They also allow moms, dads (or grandparents and babysitters) to have a little time to themselves, knowing that their children are in a fun and safe environment.
Our primary objective is to offer innovative programs with a variety of topics that both interest and challenge students, while creating a fun and friendly environment that fosters a love of learning. Classes will begin September 15 and run through November 21, 2008. Class size will be limited, allowing each student to receive individual attention from our dedicated staff. We aim for each student to have a memorable and rewarding experience.
Enrollment for the classes begins August 10. Registration forms will be available at the church office or online. Classes are offered at reasonable rates, allowing parents to sign their children up for more than one activity.
We strive to offer the most interesting and popular classes to students and parents. If you have ideas for future classes, feel free to contact us and tell us at Enrichmentprograms@yahoo.com. We are in the process of developing a St. Sava webpage where you can access class information, registration and class updates. Hopefully, it will be up and running by the end of July. In the meantime, we will keep you informed with periodic updates via mail. Registration forms will be available in the church office August 1, 2008.
Attached is a preliminary list of classes and times they are being offered. Take a look at them and write to us with any suggestions that you have. We look forward to seeing you in the Fall!!
