FALL Classes

FALL VIRTUAL CLASSES 

Cooking & Nutrition * Food & Race * PE Class: (Fitness Challenge, Hip Hop, Yoga, Fitness Fun) * Animal Sanctuary Tours * Food & the Environment

School is in session. Whether at home or in virtual school, these live interactive online classes are designed to be assigned by teachers for days at home or for homeschooling by parents/caregivers.

Our focus is on plant-based nutrition, exercise, and intersectional issues including race, the environment, and kindness to animals. 

Please note that parents/caregivers must agree to supervise their child(ren) in our cooking and exercise courses for safety reasons and that our classes are recorded for others to view and learn.  We are able to provide teachers with attendance lists upon request. 

We offer these classes for free to make it easy to participate, however, for planning purposes we need to know how many to expect. Please sign up only if you are committing your child/students to take the class and let us know if you change your mind.

   

All classes are 1 hour. Classes start the week of October 5th and run through December 11th.

There are no classes on school holidays, including the week of November 23 – 27.
