 Running with the Stars 

This program involves students throughout Loudoun and Fairfax Counties. Participants train before school two times a week with a coach, typically a parent or teacher, to prepare for a 5K run/jog. This is a non-competitive activity where we encourage the kids to strive for their own personal best. Our goal is to promote overall health and an interest in exercise. Ultimately, the kids will have a great time being active with their friends and build confidence along the way. 

 


 Spanish: Level 1

This class will provide an Introduction to Spanish language and culture. The instructor will use a variety of fun activities such as songs,  word search, coloring, writing words, and crafts to teach the children Spanish. The program is primarily oral. The basic goal is simple communication related to the child’s experience and exposure to the Spanish language and culture.

 


 Spanish: Level 2

This is the next class in the Spanish sequence. This class is appropriate for students who have some basic Spanish skills. They could have obtained these skills from taking (one or both terms of) Spanish I last year or from elsewhere (e.g., having exposure to Spanish at home, etc.). The FCPS instructor will use a variety of fun activities such as songs, word search, coloring, writing words, and crafts to teach the children Spanish.

 


 Chess Club

Chess club meets every other Thursday, alternating weeks with Green Team. Chess club is under the supervision of MRES staff. Students are partnered with other students to learn and practice this ancient board game.
