SAC SPRING BREAK – March 27-31, 2017
Everybody needs a break now and then, so when kids ages 5-8 and 9-12 have a chance to take a break together … well, exciting things happen.
Spring break for Colorado Springs School District 11 runs Monday – Friday, March 27 – 31. During that time, the School Age Programs at the Youth Center will offer some pretty cool activities.
Three big events to look for are:
(1) EDUCATIONAL MAGICIAN – 1-2 p.m. Monday, March 27
It features Inspector Magic and his show about “Super Heroes.”
Yes, just for fun, dress for the day as your favorite super hero. But, no masks, please!
Offered by the Colorado State University Extension, Ag Fest is an educational festival that addresses the concern that children are losing sight of the importance of agricultural food production and the STEM components found in every day agricultural processes.
Ag Fest will focus on the science in food production for fifth grade students. They will be offered hands-on learning opportunities as they rotate between these learning stations: Dairy Production, Global Positioning Systems, Embryology, Water Quality & Erosion, Microbes & Bacteria, Plant Science & Biotechnology, Pollination & Honey Bees, Power & Simple Tools, Range Land Ecology, and What’s Your Beef.
Staff from Colorado State University will be at the Youth Center to help our School Age kids make a Quilt of Valor from 9-11 a.m. Wednesday, March 29, in the lobby of the Youth Center. The quilt will be given to veterans when they are done.
Please call 719-556-7220 for space availability, and note that programs like these will be offered in the summer and fall for our School Age youth. Parents are always invited to join us for all events and field trips.
Here’s our cool calendar of events for Spring Break week, March 27-31.
