Addison Noon Enrichment Programs
Addison has many great enrichment programs for our students, thanks to the help of our wonderful parent volunteers! The noon art, chorus, science, and yoga programs are free for all 1st – 5th graders. (Kinders are also welcome to attend art and science programs under the supervision of a parent due to lunch time scheduling).
Noon Art: A chance to learn a little something or just get busy and create! Enjoy COLLABORATIVE PROJECTS, creative reuse of materials and just plain fun. Offered on alternate Thursdays (schedule subject to change; check the Addison calendar for dates). For more information, please contact Melissa Toteda (mtoteda AT pacbell DOT net), Marina Correggia (marina.correggia AT gmail DOT com) , Kathleen Hart (hart.kathleen23 AT yahoo DOT com).
Noon Chorus: Come sing with us! Each Wednesday during lunch recess children in 1st-5th grades meet to learn new songs and sing old favorites. The chorus performs several concerts throughout the year, including one field trip to the Channing House. No tryouts or singing experience required. For more information, please contact Joanna Finnis (joannafinnis AT gmail DOT com), Sharon Hoffman (sharonahoffman AT hotmail DOT com) Jennifer Ibbotson-Brown, (ibbotson AT gmail DOT com).
Noon Science: On select Tuesdays at noon throughout the year the Noon Science parent
volunteers set up an interactive program demonstrating simple science lessons around a theme. Popular past themes have included “Explosions,” when we set off a Mentos-in-Coke fountain, Alka-Seltzer pops, and a rocket; or “Robotics,” when the Paly High Robotics team brought their award-winning robot and the students built their own simple brushbot robots. Our goal is to get students excited about hands-on science. Noon Science dates will be announced in the Addison Advisor. For more information, please contact Neelam Amin (naminus AT yahoo DOT com) or DiAnn Eisnor (diann AT waze DOT com).
Noon Yoga: Alternate Thursdays during the lunch hour, certified yoga teachers lead 1st-5th graders through a series of relaxing and uplifting yoga postures. Consistent practice offers numerous benefits, including: increased flexibility, strength, concentration, confidence, stamina, vitality, composure, and self-awareness. Students require a signed waiver and personal yoga mat for participation. Student waiver forms can be picked up in the Office. Please visit www.addison.pausd.org/calendar for exact dates. For more information, please contact Sumita Vasudeva (sumita.vasudeva AT gmail DOT com), Beth Wang (ewang AT pausd DOT org), or Carrie Riggins (carrieriggins AT yahoo DOT com).
