Forces of Nature, Bricks 4 Kidz
Grades K – 8th
Fasten your seatbelts; we’re in for some wild weather! This unit is all about the amazing and powerful forces of nature, as students explore the when, where, how, and why of all kinds of natural phenomena. There is a lot of geography in this unit -- we’ll examine a map of the Pacific “Ring of Fire” where most tsunamis occur, view a diagram of the tectonic plates and learn how their movement creates earthquakes, define the area known as “Tornado Alley” in North America, and find out what hurricanes are called in different parts of the world. These lessons are designed to improve your child’s understanding of the forces of nature while taking care not to alarm. Each model represents the motion of that particular weather or event, with a seat for a mini-figure to take in the action! Take cover because we’re about to take a trip through some wild weather! Kids will love to build moving models of a tornado, a tsunami, an earthquake, and a cyclone. Learn how they move, why they happen, and what you can do to stay safe! Don't miss out on this Bricks 4 Kidz® action-packed after-school class!

Violin Lessons - CURRENTLY FULL
My name is Lauren Pulcipher, and I am excited to be teaching Suzuki violin lessons at St. Paul this year. I received my Master’s in violin performance and chamber music at the University of Michigan, and am a registered Suzuki Book 1 teacher. I am excited to teach the Suzuki method because I think it is a wonderful way to be introduced to the violin. Key components of the method include parent involvement and support, the opportunity to begin at a young age, peer learning in addition to individual lessons, and an emphasis on listening and repetition. I grew up a Suzuki student myself and I still use many of the skills I cultivated in my early education including problem-solving, collaboration, and appreciation for the act of learning.
Violin lessons are currently full. To be added to the waitlist, please email Lauren at: [email protected]
Piano Lessons - CURRENTLY FULL
Grades K - 8
My name is Julie Pierce and I'm excited to be able to offer piano lessons at St Paul this year. I am a long-time St Paul parent with my youngest child beginning eighth grade this year and I have an even longer history as a pianist, music teacher, choral director, and singer. I received my degree in Music Education, with piano as my principle instrument, from the University of Michigan in 1992 and have been teaching piano, music directing, and singing ever since.
I love teaching students to love music through the piano. Rather than teaching piano simply from a set method or curriculum, I prefer to cater to the musical needs of each child. I do like to use a standard method book or series as a guide, but I also draw from a wealth of musical resources outside the method books specific to each student's needs. In addition, I incorporate music theory & history, ear training, and sight singing to fully round out the learning experience.
Learning the piano can be a great springboard to a lifetime experience with music! It would be a joy for me to be a part of that musical journey with your child.
Piano lessons are currently full. To be added to the waitlist, please email Julie at [email protected]
