Learn More About Bridge Club

Bridge is one of the most popular card games in the world, so there must be some FUN to it!”  Our High Desert Montessori Bridge Club started having fun in 2010 in collaboration with Reno Youth Bridge. Many friendships have started as two players, a team, compete against another team.  Children have gained skills that rival many of the local high school teams. Last year, most of our players were within the top 10 bridge players. They enjoyed receiving cash prizes at the end of the year by attending weekly meetings and a couple of tournaments.  David Barker stated that not only is bridge fun but, “children who play bridge perform better on standardized tests than their non-playing counterparts. If you asked our bridge players, they would say it is fun bidding, trumping, and outwitting the other team.  Email Ms. Jamie for more info!  ruby@hdmsreno.com

Learn More About Lego Club

Bricks 4 Kidz® after-school classes build on the universal popularity of LEGO® bricks to deliver a high quality of educational play. Each hour-long class is a fun, enriching experience for your child. Kids build a new project each week using the classic bricks loved by generations of children. Our unique models aren’t the kits you find on the shelves of a toy store. They’re designed by Bricks 4 Kidz® to teach concepts across a variety of subject areas. Each unit is based on engaging themes such as space, inventions, famous buildings and more. We kick things off with a discussion about key concepts related to the model, then get right into the building. Working with a partner, your child will experience the hands-on fun of seeing a model come together piece by piece, from concept to completion. And by using one project kit to create dozens of models, kids learn that with a little imagination and resourcefulness, they can use what you have to create something amazing. Each class ends with free-play time so the kids can create their own one-of-a-kind masterpiece.
