Friday Reading Explorers

This is the registration for Exploris Elementary Friday Explorations “READING EXPLORERS” SESSIONS 1-6. Costs vary by the length of each session, but are $6 per day.

Session 6 is “A Tale Dark and Grimm” - Once upon a time, fairytales were awesome.  Join Hansel and Gretel in walking out of their story into the forest where they (and you) find the truth about breadcrumbs, gingerbread houses, witches, dragons, and much more.  Readers will experience a fun twist on Grimm's original fairytales, write their own mixed-up versions, and create projects such as dragon eggs, witch's brew, and art canvases.

Registration for your session must be paid before the session begins. There is a minimum of 5 and maximum of 10 students per session.

If you would like your child to purchase a book for themselves during their session, we recommend buying an online Read With Me gift card instead of sending cash.

Thank you!
