Bridge Club (for Upper El & Adolescent Aged Students)

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!

And through it students are learning focus, self-control, discipline, patience, and the life lessons required to be successful in the classroom and in life.  Email Ms. Laurel for more info!

After School Music Classes (for Primary Aged Students)

Primary Music Classes

Who:  Primary Aged Children

When:  Wednesdays from 3:45-4:15

Cost:  $40 a month (additional children in the same family

Step Into Music classes are a delightful musical adventure with themes that invite music making, movement and pretend play. Each class is designed to build attention and self-expression while building musical skills. Small instrument exploration, singing and dancing, focused listening and musical games highlight each day together.

Music awakens and stimulates neural pathways in the brain that are associated with higher forms of intelligence, such as abstract thinking, empathy, mathematics and science. Music’s melodic and rhythmic patterns provide exercise for the brain and help develop memory. Remember singing the ABC song to learn your ABC’s?

Studying Music helps children establish good listening habits, which are essential for achievement in school.

Overall, music activities are perfect for child development. Music immerses the child in language, evokes movement, stimulates the brain and fosters physical coordination-all in a group setting that builds community-a holistic experience.

Bricks 4 Kidz (for Elementary aged students)

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.
