MOSAIC recap: June 2011. Register now for August session

June 26, 2011

Has your child participated in the fun MOSAIC summer enrichment program? We still have a few openings in our August session for kids entering grades 4-8.  You can find registration and course descriptions by clicking here. You can also click the course titles below that are in red and see photos and/or videos of the class during the June session.

“Of all the camps we have done, my son has never come away so excited” said Ellen Lazaroski, parent of a child participating in the MOSAIC Lego Robotics and Wind Generator classes. “We wish it would go past noon so he could take other classes — there were so many he was interested in!”

150 students, from Coppell and throughout the metroplex, participated in the first week of our summer MOSAIC program — June 6-10. MOSAIC happens again the first week of August — register now as classes are filling up quickly.

Karen Cook, our MOSAIC Director, works with CISD to find amazing teachers and makes sure this program is a success. “We truly have a number of talented faculty in CISD with a diverse set of interests. Thank you to the school board and school district for their support. CMS North administration was extremely helpful and supportive of our efforts,” said Karen.

CGA expanded its course selection to include some new favorites: Animation, Ceramics, Logic & Math Puzzles, Mock Trial (with a real Dallas County Judge), Egg Drop, and Wind Generators.  A special thank you to Baylor Hospital Irving for their “Safe Sitter” class that was donated to MOSAIC and prepared a number of middle school students for babysitting neighbors or siblings.

We also offered some very unique classes that you can only find at MOSAIC, including: Critical Thinking with the Bill of Rights, Military History, Origami, Magic (with a real Magician).

Some returning favorite classes included: Lego Robotics, Video Game Design, Writing Studio.

Most of these classes will be offered at during the second session of MOSAIC, the first week of August, with the addition of Improv and Film Making.

It is a wonderful thing to watch students explore an interest, develop relationships with students from other schools, and then apply what they learn to other areas. I have heard of students that only see each other in class each summer, but have developed a special friendship based on unique interests that are rarely shared with their peers. MOSAIC is serving the needs of many students – in many different ways.
— Karen Cook, MOSAIC Director

MOSAIC is also is the primary fund raiser for teacher/administrator scholarships and a gift to parents that would otherwise have to drive their children to Greenhill, SMU or St. Mark’s for these types of classes.
