For our final weekend of Horizons this year, our Saturday program took on an arts-based theme focusing on the upcoming holidays. Check out what we had going on this week!
Lucy Ray and Nia Walker, Harley seniors, brought their passion for art to the program on Saturday morning. Following a holiday theme, students in grades 1, 2, and 3 designed and made glitter snowflakes. Learning should be messy, and the students had a wonderful time making their unique creations. Thank you so much to Nia and Lucy for joining the ranks of Harley seniors who volunteered and gave up a big chunk of their Saturday to enrich our program!
Fellow Englishman, Alex Evans, who is from Surrey just outside of London, returned to Horizons after a two-year absence to teach third grade. We are thrilled to have him back. Alex teaches third grade at Urban Choice Charter School in the City of Rochester. His Horizons’ students made holiday cards for their parents and participated in other holiday themed crafts. Cheers Alex!
Kimma Enerson, maker-educator, and Seth O’Bryan, Commons Co-chair, spent Saturday’s time working with our middle school students on the second phase of building their Foosball tables. Using Tinkercad, students created designs to begin 3D printing the players for the tables. Once the players finish printing, which actually takes quite a long time, they will be installed onto dowels. The printing lag time will give our students something to look forward to during Spring Session.
In the blink of an eye, our Saturday School has come to an end for 2021. On behalf of everyone at Horizons at Harley, thank you to the staff and volunteers who have made the last couple of months so much fun. We deeply appreciate you and hope that you all have a wonderful end to the year. See you in 2022!
