Sing and Sign
3:45-4:45 grade range: K-3
Join Kay and Tonya for a fun hour of singing favorite Evergreen songs and learning ASL signs to go with them! We’ll be focusing on well-loved Evergreen morning song circle music, and American Sign Language to accompany them. Do you wish Friday song circle lasted longer - then this club is for you! American Sign Language is the language of Deaf Americans, and it’s a lot of fun to learn this special language that allows communication through your hands and eyes.
Instructors: Kay Cole, Evergreen EC Associate, and Tonya Jones, Evergreen Music Teacher

Learn to Belay
3:45-5:15, grade range: 4-8
*This Adventure Team club has a cost of $160 for ECCS students, $180 for others.
Like climbing the walls? Like Ropes Courses? Wanna get belay certified? Wanna get ropes course guide certified? This course will provide the opportunity to get on the ropes course and do plenty of climbing on our climbing wall. Along with that, participants have the opportunity to get belay certified and Ropes Course Guide certified. You do not need to have any prior climbing or ropes course experience for this club. We will start at the very beginning (a very good place to start) and work up to more advanced skills. By the end of 8 weeks a student can independently manage fitting gear, anchoring, and belaying another person with confidence.
This club is open to 4-8 grade students that are willing to listen, learn, and apply climbing and ropes course skills. Limit is 12 students.
