Fit2Excel 530920 B

This is an introductory strength and conditioning class that is specifically designed with 3rd, 4th, and 5th-grade students in mind. This comprehensive class is perfect for improving coordination, balance, agility, and, ultimately, athletic performance. Participants will come out of this class with faster feet, better coordination, improved agility, and a whole lot of smiles. A GREAT way to stay active between sports seasons and have fun with fitness.

Knifty Knitters 530925 A

Does your child like to knit or often ask to learn? This is the class for them. In a relaxed atmosphere, your child will learn to knit or start to improve their skills with the basics (knit, purl, cast, etc.) or even work on something a little more challenging with the help of our instructor. All participants will create a project of their choice and receive knitting needles to keep!

*3rd graders are welcome to participate but they must provide their own transportation to Fleming.*
