The Call of the Wild

Call of the Wild Class for FOCUS students and interested others

SPACE: Science, Physical, Academic, and Cultural Enrichment will offer Call of the Wild class for FOCUS students and interested others. Open to everyone ages 7-18 but the class is capped at 12 maximum students. This class will be taught by an experienced, highly-qualified educator. It will use the materials provided by The Big Read as well as other supplemental materials and activities. The class will also include attending some of the age-appropriate events. This class is the first event and has already been promoted some (and will be promoted more) and has some enrollment already. It starts before the major Kick Off events so that the students will have already read, or had the book read to them, ahead of when their art work is due so they have time to conceptualize images in their heads, etc. For more information or enrollment, call Lanette Oliver at 972-835-6039.
