Hilltop's Big Kids Summer Program
Sign ups for Big Kids Summer are now open! We have two, four week long sessions. Each child will have STEM, art, cooking, and outdoor activities in each session! The two sessions instead of weekly sign ups are our COVID response to our summer program.
What better way for your child to jump into summer than with a camp that offers the opportunity to explore the outdoors, visit various sites around the city, and then incorporate those experiences into in-depth projects constructed with friends?
Stories from the classroom: Leadership
This week we thought about ways that we see the Big Kids working together and showing their leadership skills. This is an area that many kids are great at, and we treasure the ability to work with them to sharpen their skills. We spent some time hearing from them about what makes a good leader and what they contribute to the group.
Leadership is more than just “being in charge”. What are some of the ways that you talk about leadership at home? How do you bring up leadership/compassion/values at home? This age range is a time for social growth and it is a time that leadership and friendships build. Are there ways that you are able to blend friendships and leadership conversations with your children?
