SJND program sizzles for youths

The student body at St. Joseph Notre Dame High School is significantly younger during the summer months. The Alameda campus welcomes third- through eighth-graders to Summer Discovery, a program of enrichment classes offered during June, July and August.

For the first time this summer, the school is partnering with the well-regarded Berkeley Chess School to offer Chess Comes Alive, with instruction available at various levels.

This summer, students will again have the opportunity to cook with professional chef Mitch Costanza. In addition to Cooking with Mitch and Stage a Dinner Party, students will be able to take Just Desserts. A bonus in a class dedicated to pies, cupcakes and ice cream will be the treats to take home daily.

Students receive a map and learn the fate of their nation is in their hands in Historical Games. A needlecraft arts class will offer the opportunity to try out the time-honored crafts of cross stitch, needlepoint, trapunto, applique and embroidery.

With an eye toward back to school, Middle School Strategies for sixth-, seventh- and eighth-graders is offered in August, as is Back to School Boot Camp for third- through fifth-graders.

Sports clinics on campus during the summer play to the school's traditional strengths in cross country, basketball and volleyball. A strength and agility class is also being offered.

Summer session begins June 10, and runs through the week of Aug. 12. Opportunities for buying lunch on campus, and morning and afternoon sessions are available, as is an early bird discount for registration by May 15.
