Class Description: Parkour will be at the center of this movement class but it will also include a variety of vocabularies, including disciplines like kickboxing, rough-housing/rolling (eventual light/slow contact), dance, yoga, calisthenics, and hopefully climbing in some way. If we had a pool we'd swim! By training with natural movements, we better integrate reflexes, better coordinate our mobility and timing, and better understand our human form than we do with a sports-based physical education alone. Emphasis is always on healthy alignment to promote lifelong stability, mobility, and range of motion. Students will be moving athletically with agility, intention, confidence, creativity, control, power, and purpose which will not only make them better at these class activities, but also prime the brain with endorphins and neurotransmitters, oxygen and nutrients for more effective learning following the class. There will be units of martial arts that are non-contact and units of rough housing, which are contact. There will be games that replicate some of the ground skills of wrestling and jujitsu. Rough housing is common and normal juvenile behavior and important developmental movement throughout the mammal class of vertebrates. Aggression and violence will not be tolerated.

Homework: Approx. 3 hours a week, typically listening to selected episodes from the AstronomyCast podcast and watching selected YouTube videos.
Skills: Students should be curious about the universe we live in, and have an ability to absorb and synthesize new information quickly. While this not a math-based class, we'll be covering a lot of material at a fast pace and the weekly homework will require some time and dedication to complete.
Class Description: The universe is filled with amazing and mind-boggling stuff! How do satellites get into orbit and stay there? Why do stars explode, and how does a supernova manage to outshine entire galaxies for days or weeks? What would actually happen if you fell into a black hole? To answer these questions, we'll conduct a survey of astronomy and astrophysics and along the way we'll learn about velocity, gravity, atomic structure, electromagnetism, nuclear fusion and fission, quantum mechanics, and relativity theory. We'll cover these subjects in a conceptual, discussion-oriented manner that avoids difficult math. This class is appropriate for two types of students: those in 8th-9th grade who are already enthusiastic about STEM and want a conceptual overview of physics and astronomy (kind of a pre-physics) before taking rigorous math-based classes later; and those in 10th-12th grade who don't intend to pursue STEM education but still want to become scientifically literate in an accessible way. Prepare to have your mind stretched and your scientific understanding expanded!

Bags, fantastic wearable creations, toys, and gifts; There will be many fun projects to build your skills and to help see the possibilities in everything around you. We will cover basic (and more advanced) sewing machine usage, hand-and-needle techniques (dexterity skills), environmental awareness, design planning using color theory, and active creativity.

We will ask students in this class to have access to a sewing machine. Ideally, each student will have access to a *mobile* sewing machine, that could be brought to the Co-op on those Tuesdays when we are machine sewing (roughly estimated 1-2 times a month). We will have 3 older practice machines, to share as needed. We will be learning a set of key skills that will be useful to know in many creative ventures. With this set of skills, you will be able to repair, renew and reinvent many of those things we otherwise send out to the trash. Each project will be personalized. There will be advanced techniques introduced as needed, to make sure every student can advance their skill level. There will be three teachers for this class. Marilyn, Jessica, and Tara; triple the experience, triple the helping hands as we learn and create together.

Homework: Optional
Skills: Tenacity
Class Description: Parkour will be at the center of this movement class but it will also include a variety of movement vocabularies, including disciplines form SE Asia,, South America, Europe, Central Asia, and of course, North America. Parkour will supplement with rough-housing/rolling (eventual light/slow contact), dance, yoga, calisthenics, martial arts, and hopefully climbing in some way. If we had a pool we'd swim! By training with natural movements, we better integrate reflexes, better coordinate our mobility and timing, and better understand our human form than we do with a sports-based physical education alone. Emphasis is always on healthy alignment to promote lifelong stability, mobility, and range of motion. Students will be moving athletically with agility, intention, confidence, creativity, control, power, and purpose which will not only make them better at these class activities, but also prime the brain with endorphins and neurotransmitters, oxygen and nutrients for more effective learning following the class. There will be units of martial arts that are non-contact and units of rough housing, which are eventually slow/light contact. There will be games that replicate some of the ground skills of wrestling and jujitsu. Rough housing is common and normal juvenile behavior and important developmental movement throughout the mammal class of vertebrates, and I welcome parents and grown-ups to observe these classes. Aggression and violence will not be tolerated.

Class Description: Yoga is a physical movement practice that builds strength, enhances flexibility, and improves our mind-body connection. Created long ago to assist in preparing the practitioner for stillness in meditation, yoga today has grown to include thousands of different 'asanas' or postures, which can be combined into countless sequences for any body. Students will start class with quiet, mindful breathing, move through a gentle but challenging 'vinyasa' style yoga class, and end in a few moments of stillness.
