The Cool Kid Club is a social program for elementary-aged children that focuses on developing the "whole" child. The core components of the Cool Kids Club program are literacy and social-emotional learning (SEL) and exposure.
Literacy & Social Emotional Learning:
Each week, instructors use literacy-based lessons to teach social-emotional skills. Children learn strategies for improving reading and writing while simultaneously learning to develop a positive mindset, manage their emotions, work together, and build positive relationships.
Exposure: (Due to COVID-19 dangers, community outings are cancelled until further notice.)
After receiving instruction at our club site, participants have the opportunity to participate in community outings. Community outings are intentionally designed to allow the real-life application of skills while exposing children to new places, cultures, and lifestyles.
The Whiz Kids Mini-Summer Reading Camp is a five-week reading program for elementary students. The program combines traditional teacher-directed instruction with technology-based resources to help improve children's reading, spelling, and writing skills.
At the conclusion of the summer camp, participants will receive access to an individualized web-based reading program that they can use for one full year. Parents will receive training on the reading program, and teachers will be available by appointment to consult with parents as needed.
This year we are offering a hybrid model. The goal is to put a structure in place that will support children throughout the summer and upcoming school year.
Registration is open until 6/26/22.
