Enrichment

NFCNS is proud to offer a variety of Enrichment classes that extend the school day for all students from Bears through Pre-K. For updated availability, questions, please contact the NFCNS Director.

 

Amazing Athletes

A fun-filled sports program that incorporates physical fitness, muscle tone and gross motor skills while playing and learning a variety of sports. Baseball, basketball, hockey, lacrosse, volleyball, soccer, football and golf are some of the featured sports.

Wed Pre-K Enrichment

A fresh pairing of cooking and movement for our Pre-K students. Includes Lunch Bunch (lunch brought from home). Registration includes both classes: Cook’n’Learn – Travel Edition! – We’re taking your preschooler around the world in a flurry of cooking fun. Japan this week; Mexico tomorrow…where will they go and what will they cook? Join the class and see!  Yoga Tales – Our own Jessica Ortega will lead the class in children’s yoga and movement with a “twist” – movement and yoga experiences based on stories! Balance, coordination, flexibility, focus, creativity and self-esteem – all these qualities grow as children stretch their bodies and their imaginations!

Action Spanish

Certified Spanish teacher Jamie Reinberg will keep students on the move as they learn Spanish words and phrases – each class will include conversation over a lunch from home, followed by games and activities designed to make language learning lively and engaging.

Pre-K Enrichment

Designed especially for the NFCNS Pre-K student and taught by one of our own NFCNS Pre-K teachers, this program will provide extensions of the NFCNS curriculum such as handwriting, literacy projects, current events and math activities. Includes Mad Science and Amazing Athletes.

Lunch Bunch

Students enjoy socializing and lunch from home with their friends, followed by unstructured play. A fun way to extend your child’s day!

Cook 'n' Book

Favorite stories provide the springboard for cool cooking projects! From The Gingerbread Man to If You Give a Mouse a Cookie, children will delve into each book with spatulas flying and cook up a special snack to enjoy in class. Books, food and friends – the perfect recipe for fun!

Amazing Tots

A guided, discovery-based off-shoot of the original Amazing Athletes program, designed to engage, maintain, and develop a young preschooler’s attention span and physical abilities. Each session offers a discovery lesson in one sport along with a balanced combination of structured physical challenges and organized physical exploration activities. The session begins with a 30-minute lunch bunch (send a sack lunch, please) followed by 30 minutes of activity and instruction geared to the abilities and interests of 2- and 3-year-olds.

What: Enrichment Registration –we are proud to offer a wide variety of Enrichment programs!

Who:  Children who are members of the Bears, 3-Day, 4-Day and Pre-K classes during the school year are offered age appropriate programs that extends the NFCNS school day.

How:  Demand for Enrichments is high, so we are holding a lottery! Here’s how it works:

    • You will receive a pre-registration form that lists all the classes you may register your child for, and gives you space to indicate first and second choices for enrichment classes. Please complete this form and return it to Heather by January 18 at 3pm, who will give you a receipt. Important note: It is fine to email your completed pre-registration form to nfcnsdirector@gmail.com – just be sure it is absolutely legible! If you complete 2 sides of the form, please attach them both to the same email. Heather will email you an acknowledgment of receipt. IF YOU DO NOT RECEIVE AN ACKNOWLEDGEMENT within 24 hours, please call the school office.
    • Families who have turned in forms will be assigned a random order, and will be enrolled in classes according to that random order. We’ll notify you of the final placements after January 23.
    • Completed enrichment enrollment forms and payment will be due January 29. Enrollment is not complete until the forms and payment have been received.

    Please note – not all classes will fill during this pre-registration period. Any available spots will be filled on a first come, first served basis once the lottery is complete.

NFCNS reserves the right to cancel programming due to low enrollment.
