Expect to have a lot of fun as we dive into a story together and discuss its characters and plot. Each meeting starts with members having the option to have/make a snack and meet to connect with other members. We read the story together as a group (all reading levels welcomed) taking turns. Melissa Paull, our facilitator will use strategies that are inclusive to all. During the school year, Melissa is an instructional support teacher and provides academic interventions for students in both literacy and math. Thank you to UPS for DownS for financially supporting this club!


Participants will also participate in a fitness activity. This session, Pam Tokowitz will be teaching Yoga and Rhythm of Life. Pam is a certified yoga instructor. In Yoga, there will be a focus on breathing, relaxation, a variety of poses for all levels and abilities.
