One of our goals this year is to offer more activities after school. We now have three extra-curricular activity clubs (archery, chess, and 4-H) for students, and we are continuing the large room meetings for parents. Please make sure to send an extra snack with your child that day. All clubs are free except for 4-H which requires a $10 sign-up fee and may involve additional costs depending upon the project selected.
Archery Club (click here for Facebook photos) - Archery Club meets from 2:30 to 3:30 pm on the first and third Tuesday of the month. Students in third grade and above may participate. Kristie Anderson and Casey Connors are certified by SC NASP to teach archery. April Anthony helps out with instructing the children as well.
Chess Club (click here for Facebook photos) - Chess Club meets from 2:30 to 3:30 pm on the second and fourth Wednesday of the month. Students in all grades may participate. Jennifer Connors and Jamie Nance instruct the children in the rules and strategies of chess.
4-H Friendship Club (link to photos will be provided once posted) - 4-H Friendship Club meets from 2:30 to 3:30 pm on the second Tuesday of the month. Students in all grades may participate. Mary Margaret McCaskill of Clarendon County's agent for Clemson University Cooperative Extension Service has helped us get organized. So far, the club has elected officers, studied the 4-H oath, and has done handwork. Students are gearing up toward starting their spring projects. We are thankful for the teachers and parent volunteers who help at the meetings: Janelle Beane, Jennifer Connors, Tina Profit, and Vanessa Gause.
Large Room (click her for our events page) - The Large Room, which is for parents, meets from 6:00 to 7:30 pm typically on the fourth Tuesday of the month. Since we sometimes meet on a different Tuesday, we create an event on Facebook. Behind our unique style of education is a detailed philosophy of life, parenting, and teaching. These meetings are open to Harvest friends and families as well as anyone interesting in learning more about the ideas of Charlotte Mason. The more you learn about them and apply them, the more your child will thrive at Harvest. Tammy Glaser leads the discussion and tries to pick topics that will help parents the most.
