Course: Critical Thinking and Skill Building Games
Grade Level: 3-6
Day/Time: Monday 1:30 – 2:45 OR 2:55 – 4:10 (the 1:30 – 2:45pm section is full)
Instructor: Eddy Hilger
Cost: $20 per month + $10 application fee
Description: We will use a variety of fun games to help students learn how to critically think, strategize, plan, and collaborate with others. Students will learn how to play Chess, Backgammon, Settlers of Catan, Hive Pocket, Carcassonne, and other board games in a fun-filled environment. We will also incorporate various games, such as 24 Game, Analogy, Lost Cities and Forbidden Desert. Our goal is for students to have fun as they learn different games, play and collaborate with one another, while increasing various skills used in learning and life. The only “homework” assigned will be for students to practice at home with mom, dad, grandparent or sibling on the game we incorporate every 4-6 weeks. While this is listed as a class, it will be treated very differently than our typical academic course and students will not be graded. Of note, your child must be involved in at least one other HHL class in order to apply for this class. Last, this class has a limited number of spots (12) and fills up extremely fast!
Course: Study Hall
Grade Level: 3-6
Day/Time: Monday 12:05 – 1:20pm OR 1:30 – 2:45pm
Supervisor: Trista Plantholt
Cost: $10 per month (no application fee)
Description: This opportunity is ONLY available to students who have a class before AND after the study hall, OR have a sibling taking a class during this time. More specifically, this study hall is for students who have a class that ends at 1:20pm, but need to stay on campus until Elementary Choir or Middle Grades Art starts (2:55pm) OR their sibling’s class finishes. It is our hope and desire for the student to make the most of this occasion, using the time to study diligently, take a mental break, or read quietly.
