The Nantucket Community School has
enjoyed a full and active year offering a wide variety of programs to all of
our Islanders...from itty-bitty to wisdom-filled!
Our winter session is in full force with
an extensive list of high-quality classes offered though our Adult Education,
Community Pool, Early Childhood, Extended Day and Youth Enrichment Programs.
Help keep those winter doldrums at bay by joining us in one, or several, of NCS's fitness and enrichment programs. Islanders have enjoyed our many options including guided meditation, language classes, culinary arts, computer courses, Real Estate pre-licensure classes, GED testing, Driver's Education classes, CPR, personal awareness, yoga, aerobic and aqua fitness programs and Learn to Swim classes. January has brought back your winter favorites: Co-Ed Basketball and Volleyball for adults. And, check out our newest fitness program, Abada Capoeira, a Brazilian Martial Arts form that combines music and dance. Capoeira classes are available for children, teens and adults! This is sure to become your next favorite!
Our Child & Adolescent Enrichment Program kicked into high gear in January. Be on the lookout for our brochures and registration forms located in your child's backpack and on our website. Elementary School children will have the opportunity to enjoy a plethora of Arts & Discovery programs this Winter and Spring including Volleyball, Mythology, Critter Creations, Drama, Art, Knitting, Cooking and expanded options with FUNtastics!, NCS's newest, non-competitive, tumbling and movement program. Middle school students can look forward to newly added enrichment activities including Abada Capoeira for Youth, Science Wizards, Volleyball, Fashion related FUN and our newest teen leadership initiative, Youth Empowering Lasting Leadership (YELL) - What do YOU want to YELL about?!?
Our Early Childhood team continues to bring you activities that encourage literacy development, parenting support, resource connection and school readiness skills for all of our youngest Nantucketers and their families. Please plan to join us for our 3-part Parent Development Series. Jeanine Fitzgerald, renowned speaker and author, will present Parenting With Style which will be followed by two Parent Café discussion groups. You can connect with other caregivers while adding more strategies to your parenting toolbox. Babysitting is available with registration. Also, be on the lookout this winter for additional Family Friendly Fun. We're adding programs to our schedule so that you can add fun to your winter weekends. Do you have a child starting kindergarten next year? If so, please check out our Ready, Set, SCHOOL Spring program! Please remember to register your children for one of our many Early Childhood Center (ECC) activities. ECC Winter Registration is ongoing and can be done via phone or in person. We look forward to hearing from you!
NCS's Extended Day/Afterschool program at NES is filled with smiling, playful and very active children! If you are looking for a caring, balanced and fun place for your child's after school environment, please call or drop in for a conversation. Registration is ongoing and open throughout the school year.
