Noon Programs

Addison has many great enrichment programs for our students, thanks to the help of our wonderful parent volunteers!  The noon art, chorus, science, and yoga programs are free for all 1st – 5th graders. (Kinders are also welcome to attend art and science programs under the supervision of a parent due to lunch time scheduling).

Interested in volunteering?  Go to Noon Programs on the Addison PTA web site.

Noon Art:

A chance to learn a little something or just get busy and create!  Enjoy COLLABORATIVE PROJECTS, creative reuse of materials and just plain fun.  Offered on alternate Thursdays (schedule subject to change; check the Addison calendar for dates).  

Noon Chorus:

Come sing with us! Each Wednesday during lunch recess children in 1st-5th grades meet to learn new songs and sing old favorites. The chorus performs several concerts throughout the year, including one field trip to the Channing House. No tryouts or singing experience required.  

Noon Science:

On select Tuesdays at noon throughout the year the Noon Science parent volunteers set up an interactive program demonstrating simple science lessons around a theme. Popular past themes have included “Explosions,” when we set off a Mentos-in-Coke fountain, Alka-Seltzer pops, and a rocket; or “Robotics,” when the Paly High Robotics team brought their award-winning robot and the students built their own simple brushbot robots. Our goal is to get students excited about hands-on science. Noon Science dates will be announced in the Addison Advisor. 

Noon Yoga:

Alternate Thursdays during the lunch hour, certified yoga teachers lead 1st-5th graders through a series of relaxing and uplifting yoga postures.  Consistent practice offers numerous benefits, including: increased flexibility, strength, concentration, confidence, stamina, vitality, composure, and self-awareness.  Students require a signed waiver and personal yoga mat for participation.  Student waiver forms can be picked up in the Office.
