Every MPS school has received monies for the school year to develop and offer extra curricular programs. We will have the opportunity to continue with our Peace Learning Center contract, Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra, and art-based programs. Our parents have been surveyed as well as staff and students to determine what programs to add for additional student experiences.
First Lego Jr. and First Lego
First Lego is an extracurricular activity offered to children in 2nd grade and above. First Lego Jr. is for 2nd and 3rd graders. First Lego is for fourth through eighth grades. Bay View Montessori has offered the program since 2016, begun by the initiative of a parent.
First Lego introduces children to Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. The children work together in a team to problem solve and build models with a robotic element.
Bay View Montessori offers Chess Club to children in 2nd grade and above. Chess Club meets once per week before school. Children who participate in Chess Club may compete in weekly tournaments through the Winter. Our Chess students bring home trophies after every competition.
Our staff and parents work from October to April to teach students songs, dances and dialog to create a well executed drama performance. Our Special Education teacher, Jill Hurst, wrote 6 musicals based on the Montessori history, biology, language and math curriculum. This is offered to 1st through 3rd graders.
After school Spanish is offered through a contract with Futura Language Professionals.
