Before and After School Enrichment

*For a complete list of After School Enrichment please see the UNDERscore page at http://undercroft.org/underscore.*

In order to assure the highest level of care is provided for our children, Undercroft offers a wide range of after school enrichment programs.  We also realize the drain extracurricular activities can have on parents and children. So, rather than fill up one’s week with driving to activities scattered in various locations around Tulsa, why not consider enrolling in any one of Undercroft’s wonderful before and/or after school options? Although most programs have already begun, it isn’t too late to join.

images Before Care is available for those children whose parents need to drop them off to school prior to 8am.  In Before Care children are allowed to eat their breakfasts and to ease into their mornings.  Primary Before Care is provided by each child’s guide in their classroom and Elementary Before Care is provided by Lower Elementary guides in a roation. Look for the green Before Care sign for the correct classroom beginning at 7:30 a.m. each morning.

After Care is a favorite among Undercroft children.  To quote one child: “Hey, Dad, can’t you pick me up later so I can go to After Care with my friends?”  After Care begins at 3:15 p.m. and ends promptly at 5:30 p.m. During this time children are allowed to relax after a long, hard-working day in the Montessori classroom.  They are provided a nutritious snack, time with friends, outdoor play time on the playscape (weather permitting) and fun indoor activities.

IMG_9442After Care is organized according to age and grade level.  Primary After Care is held in a primary classroom with easy access to the playscape.  Lower Elementary After Care is in the Fine Arts Building.

Upper Elementary After Care is caters to the specific needs of this age group.  Students in the program are able to complete homework assignments and receive extra individualized lessons in the various subject areas.  Students also have access to outdoor free time with friends.

These yoga classes are specifically designed for children.  Each class begins with a series of stretching and breathing exercises, proceeds to yoga postures and concludes with a relaxation exercise.  Benefits include increased flexibility, strength, balance, concentration, coordination, stress reduction, a sense of accomplishment and, above all, a sense of well-being and peacefulness.

Classes are led by Misti Vekas.  Classes for 4-6 year olds (Primary students) will be held on Mondays from 3:05 – 3:40 p.m. in the Primary Music Room.  Classes for 6-12 year olds (Elementary students) will be held on Tuesdays from 3:20 – 4:05 p.m. in the Primary Music Room.

Classes fill quickly and are limited to 14 children due to space restrictions.  If you have any questions please contact Misti Vekas at 918-230-4977.

Undercroft students ages 3-8 are eligible to play.  Each team will be comprised of 6-8 players and includes one volunteer team representative/coach.  Saturday Soccer Events will consist of a 30-minute skills clinic for all participants and a 30-minute 4-on-4 soccer game.  Saturday Soccer Events will be scheduled for 10-11 a.m. on the field directly north of the Undercroft campus. Don’t be surprised if you meet children and parents from other private schools in Tulsa because Undercroft soccer is a very exciting Saturday morning program for many families. League cost is $45/student.  This fee includes a t-shirt, team pictures and a trophy.

images-5Japanese Lessons
Ms. Maiko Kasparek is offering Japanese lessons!  Young children are in a sensitive period for language, so learning multiple languages usually happens very quickly and easily.  In Ms. Maiko’s class, children will learn how to attach words to real immediate objects, events and actions.  Maiko uses visuals such as puppets, models and pictures as a concrete, multi-sensory approach to language develpment.

The class will meet in her classroom on Monday from 3:15 – 4:00 p.m.  If you have any questions please contact Maiko at 918-269-3771 or maiko.kasparek@undercroft.org.

images-6Guitar Lessons
Mr. Justin Kasparek is offering individualized half hour and one hour guitar lessons on a weekly basis.  Every person is different in the way that he/she learns to play, so Mr. Justin develops a lesson plan for each individual student.  Technique is the first obstacle that students learn because a firm foundation in proper playing is key to later on understanding music theory, and how to read music.  To accomplish this firm foundation, Mr. Justin employ scales, rhythm studies, and songs that the student enjoys (this is purely for fun)! To enroll please contact Justin at 918-812-5293 or justin.kasparek@undercroft.org.

Please note that enrollment space is limited in each Enrichment Class.  Enrollment will be honored on a first come, first served basis.  Most classes are still open to new students. Enrichment classes will be offered only with sufficient enrollment.
