Madonna Learning Center offers Kaleidoscope, our After School Program, which enhances our core daily academic offerings through the expressive arts. The following classes are offered once a week and include:
Visual arts are an important part of our programming. Visual arts encourage creative expression, allowing each student to develop increased self-esteem through participation in the art-making process. We focus on painting, collage, printmaking, ceramics and sculpture. Student artwork is also available for purchase(link to store).
Students in the drama class participate in a genuinely unique experience. They are taught to explore feelings, emotions and real-life situations using poetry, movement and short drama scenes. The classes provide a foundation for students to express their imagination and provide the ability to relate to their peers in new ways.
Students participate in cheerleading and dance in the Madonna Learning Center gym, using their own personal cheerleading mats. they are able to improve their muscular strength, flexibility, and range of motion while learning various cheers, a dance, and some light tumbling and stunting. At the end of the session the students will come together as a team to perform a small routine for their family and friends.
Seasonal Sports Play:
Another new addition to our after school programming is seasonal sports play. A growing body of research literature finds that in addition to improved physical health, sport plays a primarily positive role in youth development, including improved academic achievement, higher self-esteem, fewer behavioral problems, and better psychosocial.
