Early-Out Think Team program

CLINTON — Enrollment is now being taken for the first session of the Felix Adler Children’s Discovery Center’s new weekly afterschool program, “Wednesday Early-Out Think Team.”

It’s a great place for your child’s brain to be during Wednesday early-out days.

This educational program is open to children in kindergarten through third grade. Space is limited. With a curriculum designed and led by professional educators, the Think Team program will introduce children to many different topics in science, history, math and culture — all taught with a literacy emphasis.

Participants will keep their own journals and share their writing in small groups. Positive communication and respectful behavior will be the rule, and snacks will be included.

There will be three sessions of Wednesday Early-Out Think Team offered during the school year, which will coincide with Clinton School District’s trimester schedule. Session I will run on Wednesdays, from 2 to 3:30 p.m., Sept. 4 through Nov. 6.

Children may ride the bus from their respective schools or parents may bring them at 2 p.m. Dismissal and pick-up time is promptly at 3:30 p.m. The cost of this program is $75 per session. Children’s Discovery Center members receive a 10 percent discount. For more information or registration contact the Children’s Discovery Center at 243-3600 or email to info@adlerdiscoverycenter.org.

The Discovery Center is 501 (3)(c) non-profit children’s museum affiliated with the international Association of Children’s Museums. Its mission is to provide a safe and positive environment for families to discover the world by exploring arts, culture, literacy, and science through educational programs and interactive exhibits.

  • With $41.4M, 'Captain America' holds off 'Rio 2'

    "Captain America" continued to flex its Marvel muscle at the global box office, as "The Winter Soldier" took in $41.4 million domestically and $60.6 million overseas.

    The strong second-week performance for the Walt Disney release in North America was enough to narrowly edge 20th Century Fox's "Rio 2" in a springtime battle of sequels. The animated Amazon jungle tale "Rio 2" debuted with $39 million, according to studio estimates Sunday, almost exactly the opening weekend total of the 2011 Oscar-nominated original.

  • O'Brien: Colbert 'right person' to do 'Late Show'

    Don't feel bad for Conan O'Brien. Again.

    The 50-year-old talk show host said he was never a contender to take over CBS' the "Late Show" when David Letterman announced his retirement last week. The funnyman, who has hosted his talk show "Conan" on TBS since 2010, said he believes Stephen Colbert is the "right person" to take over the show from Letterman.

  • Stepping forward: The real Colbert

    Letterman changed the late-night TV game between his run on NBC's "Late Night" and starting the "Late Show" franchise in 1993. And while it's tough to replace a pop-culture icon, Colbert, in terms of pedigree and sense of humor, makes the most sense.

  • Kiss not the first to tell Rock Hall to kiss off

    Graciousness is not always high on the list of attributes you find in successful rock 'n' roll stars.

    Because of this, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductions have sometimes brought out the worst in its inductees, whether continuing once-private feuds in public or launching criticism at the hall itself. This year it's Kiss that's angry, its members upset over the organization's decision only to induct original members Paul Stanley, Gene Simmons, Peter Criss and Ace Frehley while excluding members who joined later.
