Anyone still looking for a camp on January 16th? Don’t forget that Digital Gym is offering a day camp from 8:30 – 3:00 pm. Extended care is available until 5:00 pm. It’s open to children ages 6-14. Students will learn storyboarding, stop-motion animation, green screen and other digital video techniques and editing software.

Our volunteer-run program can accept up to 70 students, including stage crew. Grades TK-3rd are more likely to be placed in group numbers. Lead roles will most likely be cast from grades 3-5.
Cast and crew are expected to commit to scheduled rehearsals and performances. Once the cast announcement is made, all families will be presented with a variety of volunteer opportunities to contribute to the success of the show.

Learning a new language is fun. Studies also show it’s great for the cognitive development of our children. We’re very pleased to offer an After School Spanish Club presented by the IES Language Foundation.
Classes meet on Thursdays from 12:20 – 1:20 and will start on Thursday, September 22, 2016 and run until Thursday, May 18, 2017 on the McKinley campus.
The cost is $405 for the full year, or can be paid in three easy installments of $149 (due 9/16/16, 1/13/17, and 3/17/17). This program will supplement the Spanish language class your children already receive during the weekly wheel.
You can sign up online here. By phone by calling 619.584.7956. Or by email at email@example.com.
Please note that this program is separate from our After School Enrichment program that you can learn about here.
