Students will learn recipes, baking tips, and kitchen safety all while getting to try new things. Cooking not only boosts children's confidence in the kitchen and at the dinner table, it also encourages them to explore with their senses.

From coast to coast, join us this session to learn about the amazing recipes America had to offer.

    LITTLE MUSKETEERS Sabre Fencing Program is specifically tailored for children of a young age who have not fenced before.  The goals is to safely teach students the basics of the sport of Sabre by introducing proper actions and lead them through a variety of conditioned exercises that will improve their balance, agility and timing.  The classes are organized into four consecutive, progressive 8-week sessions that enable all students to continue to build upon their fencing skills, techniques and knowledge.

    With your tuition, you will receive lots of parent education materials, your Collection Songbook (different each session), one professionally recorded CD, a downloadable song code to access our on-line Family Music Zone, and lots of activity suggestions for parents to continue musical experiences outside of class.

    Come sing at the first Orchard School-based community singing group, Orchard Owl Community Sing, inspired by the Community Choir Leadership Training (CCLT) I attended in Canada. No matter who you are, if you are connected with Orchard, this is the place for you to learn awesome songs, have fun with fantastic people, and give back to the Orchard Community.

    What will we be singing?
    A huge variety of music. Rounds, canons, partner songs, folk songs, songs from around the world, silly songs, anything under the sun. All songs will be taught in the oral tradition, using techniques such as call and response, and echo. No sheet music, or lyric sheets, will be used. This can sometiimes be challenging to those who are musically trained, but it gets more natural the more you do it.

    What if I can't sing, or someone told me I can't sing? Can I still register?
    YES! I truly believe in the Zimbabwean saying, " If you can walk, you can dance. If you can talk, you can sing." This singing group is safe, supportive and judgement-free. No audition, all levels of singers are welcome. There are almost always people who are more confident singing with others so feel free to take your time with participation as you feel comfortable. I guarantee it will get easier the more you do it.

    Can I come by myself? or Can I being my whole family?
    Yes and yes! You will be welcome on your own, or with your family. Your suggested donation is based on 1 person, 2 family members, or 3+ family members. All children 5 and under are free. All children 12 and under must be registered with an adult. 

    I'd love do this, but I can't swing the cash right now.
    No problem! Give what you can. No one will be turned away for lack of funds. A portion of your payment will go towards scholarships for future Orchard Owls.
