Some new activities that have started up for 2018 at Harrison include:
- Green Iowa
- Spin Art
Through yoga, the students are learning breathing techniques and new ways to cope with behavior. They can in turn take this learning back to the classroom or to their learning lab groups. This has become a great way for the students to see their enrichment learning being incorporated into their day-to-day life.
Green Iowa has been working with students to teach them what healthy meals look like and how and where they are able to get these items. They started with learning about how to grow their own produce and what items they could use from the environment. They were given tools so they can teach others around them what a well-balanced diet would look like.
Spin Art is a fun, hands-on way for kids to be creative and use their imaginations to make artwork they can display at home or at school. Introducing kids to new methods of creativity can spark an untapped talent or provide a break from paper and pencil work.
We look forward to seeing the students come together through new learning and experiences.
