Westminster XD is Underway
Learn more about our new after-school enrichment opportunity!
Westminster's new after-school enrichment opportunity, Westminster XD, is well underway this school year! This program is available to current Lower School Westminster students and is split into two different age groups, PK3 to Kindergarten (Westminster XDjr) and grades 1 through 5 (Westminster XD). Both programs consist of after school activities called "xplorations." Xplorations are offered in eight-week sessions, the current session includes; cheer practice, soccer, art class, STEM activities, Spanish class, golf, robotics, tap dance, karate, and Mandarin class.
The vision behind the new extended day program came from two of Westminster's amazing Lower School teachers (and now Westminster XD Directors) Jenni Shaver and Chrissy Almodovar.
"We wanted to give our students better opportunities to extend their learning with smaller projects beyond the classroom," Mrs. Shaver stated.
Entering into its third week, the XD program is a success among parents and kids! Jen Romero, Westminster's PK4 teacher and Westminster parent stated, "It's absolutely a better opportunity than having them sit in a room and play with toys. I love that Westminster XD provides options that keep them learning. My kids are having a great time!"
Photos taken during the first eight-week xploration session can be found here.
It's not too late to sign up! Westminster XD is available Monday- Friday with additional After Care for those who can not be picked up after xplorations. Be sure to visit our Westminster XD and After Care page at wsa.net/westminsterxd to learn more and to sign up!
