Throughout the school year, we offer a variety of after school enrichment classes and clubs. Our current offerings include an after school Art class, Fairy & Gnome Houses, for grades K-3.
We are also offering an after school Lego robotics club, as part of FIRST Lego League. Each week, participants work on a collaborative challenge and learn how to program Lego creations using the Lego WeDo platform. This year’s teams will participate in the international FIRST Lego League, Jr. competition at Norwich University.
Please continue to check back for additional enrichment classes throughout the school year. Many of our enrichment classes are open to all students in the community (not just Vermont Day School students!).
We offer a competitive Middle School cross-country team in the fall. Runners practice off campus on trails in the area and participate in local meets with other schools. The emphasis is on building endurance and speed, learning techniques and etiquette for trail running, and developing a passion for running in the outdoors with friends.
In the spring, all students have the opportunity to participate in Ready, Set, Run! This program encourages participants to establish fitness goals and practice good nutrition and sportsmanship in a fun and safe environment. With the support of experienced coaches, each participant tracks mileage and earns incentives as they strive towards their individual running goals. Runners participate in the Ready, Set, Run! Festival at the Burlington Waterfront in the spring.
