The Ecotarium's "Journey to the Stars"

Thursday, April 22nd at 10:30 AM


Long-distance travel might be tough right now but that doesn't mean we can't rocket through space! Join the EcoTarium as we tour the solar system, explore asteroids, stars and nebulae, probe the outer limits of the universe, and discover what's in our sky tonight.

Springtime Storytime and Craft Consortium

Thursday, April 29th at 3:30 PM 


She's back. Wendy Valentine will join us again for a craft where kids will actually get their own pots to plant seeds. It's an activity that can really "grow" on you. And don't forget the stories - Mr. Mark will have a few of those as well.

Storytime's in the past - you've just been bumped up to the Big League of Books.

The Big Kid Book Club will be a virtual Zoom activity where I'll read the first chapters of three new books and you'll get to vote on the one you want to hear. Then, after each chapter, we'll talk about what's going on in the story and I'll read the whole book.
You'll be taking the next step up the literary ladder.


Remember, today, The Big Kid Book Club, tomorrow - your driver's license.

Zora won't read to you but you can read to Zora (via Zoom). Just email Mr. Mark at and he'll send you a link to have your own ten minute session - just you and Zora. She doesn't care how well you read, she just wants to listen. If you don't have a dog you can have Zora, at least for ten minutes.
