Grades K - 5


Piano Lessons

Piano is a fantastic way for your student to unplug and learn rhythm and coordination in a creative and tactile way. Music taps into a different part of the brain and is just plain fun! These lessons are for students of all skill levels.

Buy a pass for ten classes and coordinate with Ms. Sheila Zuccarello to schedule lesson times on Tuesdays and Wednesdays that work with you and your schedule. Then, you may purchase a new pass if you'd like to once those ten have run out!

Grades K - 2 Offerings


Upcycle Art 
Put those creative brains to work in an exciting and experimental environment! Your students will learn to use recycling and found materials to create art, structures, and make their ideas come to life. Build problem-solving skills, perseverance, and confidence while using imagination to repurpose everything from boxes to buttons and more.

Creative Engineering
Come join the educators from RIMOSA (Rhode Island Museum of Science & Art) as they turn your students into little engineers! Each week students will learn new engineering skills using a variety of mediums and hands-on projects. Some skills and projects may include: architecture using non-traditional materials, aerodynamics and paper airplane flight, harnessing wind energy for transportation, biomimicry (building like animals and insects using the materials within reach), and buoyancy! 

Eco Explorers #1
Everyone’s favorite, Miss Melissa from 15-minute-field trips, is back for after school programs all revolving around nature right in our own backyard! We are offering 2 sessions of this per week, and each one will be different. You can sign up for 1 or both to get the most out of this program!

Grades 3 - 5 Offerings

Homework Club (offered Monday–Friday)
Why do homework at home when you can do it at school!? Students in grades 3-5 will have the opportunity to work on their homework assignments under the supervision of one of our Lower School faculty members. This is a calm and quiet environment for students to work in with minimal distractions and a chance to get to meet with and get guidance from rotating teachers from our Lower School. On Fridays, there is no homework assigned, so students will have the chance to participate in academic-based activities with their classmates.

STEAM Zone
Join Ms. Broderick to explore a variety of STEAM based projects. Students will code, design, build and create as they learn how to use new technology tools. Mini projects will be offered each week and students will have the option to explore individual topics of interest to them. Digital storytelling, robotics and STEAM design/build challenges will be at the core of their classes.

Thrown for a Loop 
Knitting is a lifelong craft that is both relaxing and fun! Get away from technology for a bit and learn this traditional skill. Students will learn the basics of knitting and complete a small project. Skills taught will include: how to cast on, how to make a knit stitch, how to bind off, and how to sew together seams. Students will select yarn to make a fun knitted toy to keep at the end of the session! All supplies (including yarn and needles) will be provided. Great for beginners who want to learn how to knit and those who may have already had a bit of practice and just want to relax and enjoy knitting with their friends
