Educators are putting together their FALL offerings right now. Keep your eyes on the website, and May 1st the Fall Class Listing will be available. You can plan for your Fall classes soon.
Thanks to the dedicated parents in our community we have been able to create a safe space where we and our children can explore, experiment and thrive. I am happy this year one of the many long term goals we have achieved is to have all of our lighting transitioned over from fluorescent to LED. LED lights are more cost efficient, environmentally sound and better for all of us working in the space. Thank you, Mehdi, for putting in hours of time to make our space healthier for everyone.
Well...if you have gotten this far, and you already knew Different Directions, you will have noticed our new website. This is the beginning of our new community space. We will be able to post news, links, events and commentary now to this central space. It offers a way to showcase HOW MUCH is happening everyday at Different Directions, how vital we are for many within the homeschooling community, and how excited we are to continue to grow.
The Thursday Afternoon Kid's Club program offers diverse programming for children, with seasonal fun injected wherever we can find the space. Here members of the group carve pumpkins in anticipation of Halloween fun.
The students and I are also happy to announce the renovations on the Ramone Aponte Playground next door to the Actors Temple are completed. After watching with baited breath all winter, this June 2016, during our summer adventure camp we attended the dedication ceremony for the playground. We also planted flowers in anticipation of many happy hours spent playing.
As many of you know, in 2015 we relocated to 47th street in the lower level of the Actors Temple. September 2016 we moved up(stairs) and into the light! The Temple has generously renovated the 3rd floor which has two beautiful big rooms, new windows, office, storage space and a waiting area for parents.
