Family Math Night, September 27 6-8pm
Co-sponsored by Mathnasium here in Ann Arbor, our Family Math Night event is all about exploring math in ways that are fun and rewarding, and it’s open to the public. At our campus from 6:00pm to 8:00pm, games and activities that test kids’ logic and math skills will be available for ages K-8th grade. Children can learn to balance risk and reward in the game “Playing the Odds”, work on their multiplication skills at our multiplication game table, and test out their logical thinking with the game “Nine Squares”, which requires them to strategically fit nine numbers within nine squares. Want to encourage a love of math and learning in your student? Join us at Family Math Night!
“Is The Writing On The Chalkboard? Does Your Child Need An Academic Change?”, October 11, 6pm-7:30pm
Is your student already frustrated, distracted, or struggling at school? School doesn’t have to be difficult or frustrating—in fact, it should never be! Come learn about your many options at our school-wide open house on Tuesday, October 11th at 6:00pm to 7:30pm, where Clonlara advisors and enrollment specialists for both the Campus and the Home-based programs will be available. The event will be an open forum with access to all of our K-12 Campus teachers, and is all about exploration. Clonlara School’s programs have a place for every kind of student—whether you’re interested in full campus enrollment, full home enrollment, blended scheduling, dual enrollment between our home and campus programs, or dual enrollment with another public or private school, we have something for your learner, no matter how old he or she is.
We want everyone to know that no matter where you are in your education, if you are struggling, there are options—many of them. If your current educational choice isn’t the right fit for your student, come see what Clonlara has to offer. Our students’ curricula are completely tailored to their individual strengths and interests, and our educational programs are designed to give students and their families control. Even though school has already started, it’s not too late to come see what Clonlara is all about and to learn how we can help turn things around.
Pint Size Heroes Blood Drive, October 14, 1:00pm-6:45pm
On Friday, 10/14, we invite the community at large, and our parents, to join our students in the Pint Size Heroes blood drive as volunteers and, for those eligible, as donors. Individuals who are 16 years old may donate blood with a signed consent form, which can be obtained from our Campus Administrator, Martha Rhodes. Students who are older than seventeen are able to donate without parental consent, but should still discuss this with their parents. We have sent home the parent letters for the event in the past two weeks’ newsletters. Parents, friends and community members can sign up for their donation appointment at www.redcrossblood.org using the sponsor ‘clonlara’. We highly encourage everyone, mostly parents, to donate because we need 31 donations in order for each of our Campus students to be named Pint Sized Heroes.
This event will provide not only the opportunity to help save a life, but also an opportunity to learn about an important medical service. Students will learn about the many benefits of giving blood at an assembly given by the Red Cross beforehand: they will learn about blood and how it is used as a medicine, how blood is given and received, and what American Red Cross Blood Services does. To learn more about this community service project, take a look at their website.
