Co-Curricular Class Descriptions

Wonder Workshop K-3rd grade ($500/15 weeks)
Wonder students will engage in creative construction, imaginative engineering, design models and work in collaborative teams. They will be introduced to basic engineering and physics as they problem solve, test ideas and analyze results in a project- based approach. Students will study inventions, designs in structures and tinker with how different things work. They will learn to draft a plan, collect resources and consider possible results, all powered by play. Students will develop a work journal to reflect on project development and the fun adventures of every seasonal STEM lesson as they document the learning process with a sense of wonder. Activities are student driven; they will research their interest and motivations through high engagement challenges. Susan Varghese brings nineteen years of experience in Early Childhood Education, as a classroom teacher, teacher trainer and former curriculum developer. She has taught in Christian private schools throughout Austin. Susan studied Child Development at Texas State University, with an emphasis in early brain development and she is a state certified Preschool Director and has been a school administrator for ten years. Prior to returning to the classroom, Susan launched a preschool from the ground up, hiring an exceptional team of educators, training in curriculum components and building a Christ-centered program primarily focused on collaborative learning. She is currently on staff at Regents as a Kindergarten Enrichment teacher. Her passion is to bring innovation, creativity and wonder into the lives of young students as they develop a love for learning.

Fundamentals of Cookery 4th-8th grade ($575*/15 weeks)
Great cooking is about more than recipes – it’s about techniques.  In Chef Keii’s hands-on classes students will work together, learn essential skills and fundamentals that will boost kitchen competence and confidence.  Classes are 2 hours and each student will enjoy or take home generous tastes of each dish.  Chef Keii is a certified safe serve food manager.  She dual majored as a culinary & pastry student at Escoffier Culinary Arts School. Keii owns a dessert catering business in addition to mentoring.  She was also the culinary assistant for Chef Stephane Beaucamp at Lake Austin Spa. Class meets after school on Tuesdays in the Café kitchen. *$575 includes a tool kit that contains a cake decorating kit, chef knife and case, chef coat, hat, apron, and cut-proof gloves that students may keep.
 
Latin Club 6th- 8th grade ($300/14 weeks)
Latin Club brings together students who have a love for the Classical world and the Latin language to represent Regents at certamina – or, Latin Club competitions. Certamen means ‘struggle’, or ‘contest’ in English and consists of a team buzzer competition where facts about the ancient world have to be quickly remembered by players. We will turn our focus from just Certamen to prepare for Area Tests (Feb 22) and State (April 5th & 6th) costumes, art, etc. Club meets in Mrs. Brown’s Logic Hall room 212 on Thursday mornings. Students in 6th grade will leave at 7:55am.

Science Club 1st-6th grade ($500/14 weeks)
Spend one hour after school each Wednesday learning about cool and fun topics in science; ranging from electricity and circuits to chemistry and DNA and learn about topics in physics, chemistry, and biology. Each student will do a fun experiment and take home their results! Mrs. Taylor first taught Chemistry at Regents from 2002-2004. She now has three children who attend Regents and has worked as a chemical engineer in the Texas oil industry. This class meets on Wednesdays after school.

Logic Games & Coding 7th-9th grade ($400/10 weeks)
This class will teach students a series of fun games and coding challenges to help sharpen their logical reasoning skills and prepare them for the computer science classes in the SOR.  Games will be a mix of board games (classical, ancient, and modern) and the coding activities will incorporate the Python programming language.  The programming skills students learn will directly feed into the concepts taught in the SOR Intro to Programming class, but will be taught in an accessible and interactive way.  After working in corporate finance at GE, Mr. Shufflebarger seized the opportunity to join the Teach for America program and taught Math in underprivileged schools for three years. He spent his first year teaching in the Mississippi Delta, where he led a group of Algebra students to the highest test scores in the district, and his last two years in inner-city Indianapolis. He attended a school similar to Regents in High School that had a profound impact on his worldview growing up.  After completing her math education degree in Ohio, Mrs. Zepeda taught at a Christian school for 8 years. At the end of 7th years she longed to be near family and really enjoyed the thought of teaching at Regents, the school that played a part in the incredible man her younger brother (J.C. Mohler graduating class of 2005) has become. After praying about the decision and sending in her resume, the rest of her transition to Regents fell into place with ease. Class meets after school on Thursdays.

Art Portfolio Development 7th -12th grade ($325/13 weeks)
This class will explore a variety of art techniques and media including drawing, painting, printmaking, and sculpture. This is a wonderful class for beginners who have an enthusiasm for creating art as well as more advanced artists preparing their art portfolio. Kaitrin Mathew, the Rhetoric Art instructor, will give one on one instruction and provide the necessary tools for each artist to develop their creativity and technical skill for the upper level art portfolio. Join us for a fun and exciting semester in Art! Class meets on Thursdays.

Behind the Museum Door (NEW PROJECTS) 1st-5th grade ($350/14 weeks)
Students will learn about famous artists and create projects through that artist’s inspiration.
Topics: Oil and Chalk Pastels Polar Bear Design, Paper Mache Snowman Sculptures, Jim Dine "Things I Love" Shadow Box and Paper Weave Heart Designs, Keith Harring Dancing Dogs Paintings on Canvas, Ansel Adams Nature Ink Blocks, Still-Life Drawings in Graphite and Prismas, and Altamira Cave Paintings. Your teacher, Mrs. Kristen is an experienced Art Education teacher with a background of over 12 years in both public and private schools. She has also created art curriculum and taught students in a private after school art studio for children ages Pre-Kindergarten - 7th grade as well as taught private art lessons and summer art camps. Mrs. Lemon has taught after school Co-Curricular Art Classes at Regents for one year and is also the School of Logic Visual Arts teacher. She has spent her life exploring and developing amazing ways to encourage and engage children in the art of self-expression, creativity and thinking. Class will meet on Thursdays after school.

Dance 1st-3rd grade ($350/15 weeks)
Students will gain strength, flexibility and poise while learning a variety of dance styles including ballet, jazz, lyrical and hip hop.  Dancers will build upon basic skills and grow as dancers and performers.  The session will conclude with the dancers performing pieces for family and friends on May 8.  Mrs. Stevens was inspired by the beauty of dance as a little girl and began training in ballet, tap, jazz, and hip hop. She danced through high school and was an officer on her high school drill team in Alvin, Texas. She received a dance scholarship to Stephen F. Austin University and graduated from the University of Houston with a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology. Mrs. Stevens danced professionally with Planet Funk Entertainment and at Disney's California Adventure Park and continues to work with local artists on various dance projects. She lives in San Antonio with her husband, Daniel, and has three children. Amanda is excited to share her passion for dance, to guide the children in growing their gifts, and to delight in the joy of dancing to glorify and praise our Lord!  Class will meet on Wednesdays after school.

Photography 6th-12th grade ($350/13 weeks)
Lessons will concentrate on both the mechanics of using equipment (camera, lighting/flash, tripod) as well as artistic expression and teaching in the context of using photography in a way that always honors/magnifies God - Coram Deo - bringing out each student’s individual artistic gifts.  Class will meet on Mondays after school.
