Dear WSRA Families,
Thank you to all of our participants, family members and staff who joined us for another week of virtual programs!
SPECIAL EVENT: SWSRA is hosting a ‘Spring Formal’ virtual dance for ages 13 and older on Friday, May 14 from 6:30 – 8:00pm. The fee for this virtual dance is $10.00, which will be added to your online account balance if you can attend. To register, please email Tracy Magee at email@example.com by Noon on Thursday, May 6. Tracy will email the Zoom link to registered families by Thursday, May 13.
Below is the schedule of WSRA’s FREE virtual programs for the week of May 3! The Program Lead will open up the Zoom rooms no more than 5 minutes before each program, and each program will last up to 40 total minutes. Though it is not required, participants are encouraged to use the webcam through their computer, tablet or smart phone to assist with social interaction. When logging into Zoom, we ask that participants type in their first name only (not last name). At this time, we will not be requiring families to register in advance, so participants and staff are able to attend virtual programs when able and interested and without advance notice.
MONDAY, MAY 3
(Ages 15 & Older) ‘TALK & DINE’ with Tracy
Let's enjoy each other’s company over dinner (your choice of cuisine) in the comfort of your home. If you won't be eating dinner during the time of this program, please still join us to socialize and catch up with friends! NOTE: We will continue to use a Zoom feature called ‘breakout groups’. With this feature, we will break into two groups to give everyone the chance for more meaningful socialization during the program.
TUESDAY, MAY 4
(All ages) ‘READY…SET…IMAGINE!’ with Amber
Today is your day! You create the story and we listen. Each of us will have the chance to tell our own story. Let’s get our creative juices flowing as we build off each other’s thoughts to create fun mad lib stories. After our stories are told, grab a piece of paper to draw what you believe your story would look like on paper. If you wish, you can share it with the group. Supplies: white paper and pencil, crayons, colored pencils, etc.
