Tewksbury Elementary School
AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAMS
Whittemore - Community, Culture & Conservation is excited to be partnering with the Tewksbury Elementary School and the Board of Education, in providing After-School programming for the 2022-23 Academic year, to be held on school grounds right after school.
Our programs will have a nature and wellness theme, enriching students on the importance of conservation, the natural beauty available in our own backyard (schoolyard), the importance of being outdoors, while embracing the community in which we live, all the while having fun! Our focus is for the children to be outdoors as much as possible while enjoying themselves and taking the skills learned and using them at home. We look forward to enriching your students.

PACK WALKS -
Grades K-4, Wednesday
3:35-4:35 with Naturalist Ryan Ozolins
Imagining ourselves to be a family of Grey Timber Wolves, we will take a weekly walk patrolling and getting to know our "territory" (Pascale Park & the grounds of TES) - a hands on exploration of a range of natural history subjects; the basic geology, flora & fauna of the local landscape and wildlife, all the while discussing the basics of outdoor survival, all from the perspective of an extended wolf pack & pups!
This program will be held outdoors, weather permitting! We ask that you dress your child for the weather. We suggest layers and sneakers or boots (especially if its been raining). If the weather does not allow us to be outside, the program will be held indoors with fun activities relating to that days topic.
This class will be run by WhittemoreCCC's Naturalist Ryan Ozolins, a youth development specialist and creative coach on a journey full of surprises. When you explore with Ryan, you will discover even more about the world around you and within you. In addition to your five senses, Ryan believes you can also develop your sense of humor, a sense of direction and most importantly, a sense of wonder.
Ryan is a husband, a father to two tween's and a juggler, musician, Eagle Scout, and donut shop owner. WCCC is excited to have him join our Naturalist Team!
Class is limited to 10 students.

YOGA MOVEMENT FUN!
Grades 2-4, Thursdays 3:35-4:35
with Roberta Brassard
Yoga is for everyone and is all about connecting, so join us as we have fun connecting with our friends, ourselves and the world around us through games, stories and kid-friendly yoga poses. We will explore movement, breathing and focus and even find a little time to relax while we celebrate themes around the environment and our emotions. Most classes will include a craft related to theme.
Roberta has been practicing yoga for over 20 years and is hoping one day to figure it out! Roberta's classes are different every time and are always taught to accomodate each individual. A friend refers to her classes as Roga!
At Whittemore Roberta leads our Thursday classes.
Class is limited to 8 students.
