The spring session will begin March 10 and will end June 9. This 12 week session is open to everyone in grades K-3 on a first come serve basis.
The Neighborhood Nature Program is available to students in K-3 grades at Genesee Community Charter School on Friday afternoons from 12:45 – 2:45. This program will offer structured learning and free play activities on the RMSC campus. Rochester Ecology Partners is working with the school to offer this program.
The Neighborhood Nature program is a social emotional well being and academic enrichment program from Rochester Ecology Partners. We will engage students in nature based activities that are designed to cultivate their relationship to the natural world and their community. We will venture outside whenever possible, and bring nature into the school on days when outdoor activities are not possible. For our fall program at GCCS, students will explore the colors of autumn and learn about the changing seasons.
