JUMP ROPE GROUP
We’re proud to support our kids in living a healthy lifestyle while having fun with Galileo’s Jump Rope Group! Jump Rope Group meets Fridays after school at Galileo. Space is limited to the first 35 students who are registered and paid. More information about registration coming soon. Jump Rope Group is open to grades 1-5.
Please provide a snack for your child to eat before Jump Rope Group begins. They will need the energy! Jump Rope Group will end promptly at 5pm. Please remember that only those children who are registered and paid can attend.
We are looking for a volunteer to facilitate this group. If you are interested, please fill out the volunteer form. If your student is interested in this group, please indicate here to be informed when registration opens up.
MEET THE MASTERS
Meet the Masters is an art program for our elementary students where parent volunteers teach about some of the great master artists. Whether you are a seasoned or new Art Parent, the tools provided to you make it quite straightforward to execute in the classroom. You need not be creative or artsy to teach this program – if you can read a recipe, you can do it. Plus, your teacher is there to manage the classroom.
Volunteers are needed once a month during the school day January-May to facilitate Meet the Masters. Curriculum and supplies provided through the PTA. Volunteer here.
The Galileo Chess Group is open to all K-8 students and all skill levels! Chess Group meets every Wednesday morning before school from 8:40 – 9:20 in the Galileo Cafeteria. If your student is interested, please indicate here.
Parents are asked to volunteer for two mornings a year. It’s easy and you don’t need to understand the game either! You will be asked to sign up at registration but if you need to change your volunteer day later you can do so. Volunteer here.
There’s nothing better than watching a rocket you made soar into the sky! The Galileo PTA loves to see our students’ dreams soar along with their rockets!
Rocket Group is open to all 7th and 8th grade students and will be held on Mondays after school. Express interest here.
Sign up to volunteer here.
