KEVA Planks

Amazing things happen in a room full of children and KEVA Planks....Attention spans lengthen, concentration intensifies, creativity is focused, voices are muted, teamwork happens, excitement builds, projects flow, children yearn to learn.

KEVA activities can be challenging to both a five year old and an accomplished architect.  Children who play with blocks tend to do better in mathematics and science. KEVA Planks help children learn socially, physically, creatively, and intellectually.

They add a tactile element to meet specific educational goals in almost any subject – teamwork, creative thinking, ELA and communication, math and engineering concepts, art, or social studies.

Engaged students hard at work :) These kiddos are so awesome!
 Good teamwork!



On October 19th, we celebrated LIGHTS ON AFTERSCHOOL with an Open House and Showcase. The students shared their afterschool project with their parents and guests. All the pictures were so fun to see, but the best part was the hands-on science they did that day, including a lesson on polymers and exploding canister rockets!! Wahoo! Lights On Aferschool is a day dedicated to celebrating the difference afterschool programming makes in the lives of young people across the country. Our day also celebrated the difference afterschool is making right here in our community!!!
